Marc, This is great. A fantastic discovery for the Dave Lambert catalog. And Hello Mary, beautiful voice. I graduated HS right behind you in '65. You were indeed lucky to bea a part of Lambert's work. Congrats Marc - what a find!

Some great info on Alvino. I worked a short tour with him to Jamaica with a Ray McKinley segment and a handful of King Sisters (and daughters). I'm not sure who recommended me for it - either Mac or Dean Kincade with whom I worked with at Walt Disney World. This was in the 80's. Alvino was a great talent and very unassuming and considerate of the band members. At that time he was "Alvino Rey And His Talking Guitar." he had made some sort of Vocorder like device (probably with vacuum tubes) and had it set up off stage so no one could see his 'secret.' A kind, gentle, talented man.
