Label Design: -

With 'Inc' & 'R' lettering after 'Blue Note'. Deep groove with '47 West 63rd - NYC' address.

This beautiful second variant collector's copy was pressed just after “Blue Note Records” became an incorporated company & a registered trademark. The same fine sound as the 47W63rds pressings without the 'INC' and 'R' on the labels is present. We have play tested this record & the sound is immense, no doubt coming from an early batch of the second run with stampers originating from the same Matrix/ mothers as the original 47W63rds previously mentioned.
A combination of Van Gelder’s sound engineering & Plastylite pressing [with or without the 'R'] is well & truly the 'golden age' of highest quality, Blue Note pressings.

Condition : -

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 as exotic imports in the UK, the heavyweight pasted laminate sleeve is in beautiful shape. Clean, with no splits, rich colours & all text clearly legible. The Chappell import sticker is still intact on the back top right & there is just a tiny 'R' letter annotated bottom right. The sleeve easily meets an excellent condition grade. It really is stunning.

The colours of the labels are bright and vivid with no tears to the print. There is a 'deep groove' visible both sides & a raised edge. From a collector's standpoint, a flat edge is more desirable but in terms of sound quality there is little between a flat & raised edge pressing of these original monos [we have found & play tested both in our time]. There are some very light spindle marks to indicate play but nothing of any real consequence.

The condition of the vinyl is outstanding, so much so we even decided against cleaning it in anyway. Under a bright light, there is just a little light axial wear or just one or two faint paper scuffs to indicate play or handling in the past. Upon play testing both sides, we can confirm this one sounds remarkable. Just the lightest ambient surface can be detected at the start & the odd occasion inbetween tracks. Wonderful stuff & easily in the 'Excellent' condition bracket, we have to say there is no other way to own this - you've got to get a first pressing mono to hear the difference...

Trane's lone Blue Note release is an acknowledged masterpiece. This one should not be missing from any jazz or serious music collection for that matter. Trust us, you won't be disappointed!
