Thanks so much for posting this. I was trying to record my friend's copy onto my computer to digitize it and "A Train" had skips in it I couldn't get rid of.

We actually play stuff sort of like this with our big band, the II-V-I Orchestra. Later this evening we're doing the Beatles a la Basie at our monthly performance.

Thanks again and if you ever got around to it I'd be interested in the technical details about how you digitize LPs.
