Re: [RedHotJazz] Source of Divergent lp label "Victorious Bix" lp's?
- Speaking of Erik Bakker, what is he doing jazz-wise these days? I used to subscribe to "Micrography" and bought regularly from Golden Age Records while his father was alive and I think I bought several items related to the Beatles from Erik for my sister. I have an inkling that "Names and Numbers" is still in existence, but anything else?

issues (25 euros outside Europea) to Gerard J. Hoogeveen, Reine Claudestraat
15, 1326 JC Almere, Netherlands. This is an advert.
Erik is still a fellow member of the editorial team but as far as I know is
currently a sleeping partner and is devoting his time to his thriving
printing business. I haven't seen him for 3 years or so. His Beatles period
is over and all his current projects relate to more worthwhile music! He was
the moving force behind reviving Names & Numbers.
(Please don't anybody waste bandwidth by telling us how important the
Beatles are. We know, we know. We've been told.)
