According to the jacket notes, Stu gigged at the lounge of the Quality Inn, Covington, KY., a building still exists, but is now owned by Radisson. The building is a terrific piece of space age architecture. A rotating restaurant can be found on the top floor. Self would have likely played his set in a ground floor lounge that was located in a section of the building just off the tower, to the right, as seen in the postcard image above.

  1. That is quite a building...I've been to that rotating top many times for dinner. I never had a complaint or anything - good food, the almost imperceptible turning, etc. Is that restaurant still up there? I would love to have dinner there again.

    1. I'm not sure if the restaurant is still operating.

  2. Just stumbled on this "Stu Self" feature.
    Stu was a regular at Jacks-R-Better in Cold Spring, Ky., back in the mid-seventies and into the eighties. He was extremely popular with the regulars. Jack Ripberger, the proprietor, died suddenly and the place was sold, later becoming Jacks-R-Better.
    I suspect it was then that Stu got the gig at the Quality Riverview.
    I would love to locate him.
    Thanks for the memories.
