The Sleeve

We should start by saying we have never seen a copy as nice as this before sleeve & vinyl wise. Obtained from a one previous owner collection with all records bought from new at the time the heavyweight pasted laminate sleeve is in beautiful shape. Clean with rich vivid colours & all text clearly legible there is just the faintest bit of scuffing to the paper at the corner edges to show with age & a tiny paper split top right at the opening which is barely half an inch. The sleeve is simply stunning & complete with the correct period company catalogue inner. It also retains a nice period UK tax code sticker & even the Mecolico royalty sticker for authors rights which were affixed during export from the US. Very very nice indeed!

The Labels

This beautiful first issue copy was pressed just after "Blue Note Records" became an incorporated company & a registered trademark hence the inclusion of INC & R lettering on the labels.

These are the original Deep Groove versions of the West 63rd Address label twice as rare as the regular version which is hard enough to find anyway!
Both sides are clean & free from writing stickers excessive wear or any other blemishes that would affect the print. There is just a little light spindle wear to indicate play but nothing of any real consequence.

The Vinyl

The Rudy Van Gelder initials RVG & the ear logo are stamped and etched into the runoff area. The matrices like the ear are hand scratched. A combination of Van Gelders sound engineering & Plastylite pressing is well & truly the golden age of highest quality Blue Note pressings. We really should be putting these in our audiophile store!

The vinyl has been professionally cleaned on a Matrix machine and has come up looking sparkling. Under a bright light there is just a little light axial wear or faint paper scuffs to indicate some play & enjoyment in the past. Upon play testing both sides we can confirm this one truly does sound remarkable. There is just the lightest surface ambience in places but this is so minor & of no real consequence. If we had to grade this marvellous copy then a conservative VG+/EX- would be it but it plays & looks so much better than that. We give this our highest recommendation.

We are pleased to offer this beautiful clean archive copy for sale. An alltime classic soul jazz release.
