An early recording by Cincinnati guitarist Cal Collins was in the spotlight a while back. This time it's one of his better known LPs for Concord Jazz.
Like most of his fine recordings for the label, 1979's Blues on My Mind has not been released on CD or as a legal download. Collins is accompanied by pianist Larry Vuckovich, bassist Bob Maize and drummer Jeff Hamilton. The one non-standard on the album is the title tune, which Collins wrote himself.

The only one of Cal Collins's Concord releases that appears to be easy to get hold of is Ohio Style (1990). Also available is his final album, S'Us Four: Jazz Guitar Cincinnati Style, released by J-Curve Records in 1998.
All his Concord LPs are worth searching for in the used record store bins.
To close, here's Cal Collins introduced by Benny Goodman at a 1976 concert in Warsaw, Poland. You could easily skip the first 40 seconds. It's just Goodman looking smug as the audience applauds.
