This week the Vinyl Vault goes digital in honor of Monk’s 100th birthday. Monk recorded several albums for the Columbia label from 1962 through 1968. In 2001 Columbia released a three CD retrospective entitled “The Columbia Years/ ’62 – ’68.” The set contains a number of previously released Monk gems hitherto unheard on KUVO including an extended version of “In Walked Bud,” originally on the “Underground” album. So it may not be vinyl, but it’s rare Monk! Check out the Vinyl Vault on the Night Beat with Geoff Anderson on Tuesday, October 10 at 8:30pm on KUVO.
