Up for auction is the classic and collectible Blue Note 1597: Kenny Burrell "Blue Lights" Volume 2 from 1958
, featuring Burrell on guitar, Louis Smith on trumpet, Tina Brooks and Junior Cook on tenor, Duke Jordan and Bobby Timmons on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Art Blakey on drums. Cover art is by Andy Warhol. Record is the original MONO and bears the 47 West 63rd address, deep grooves, RVG etched in the dead wax, and the Plastylite "ear." This is an ex-radio DJ album; record is stamped "REVIEW COPY" on one side of the label.
Cover is NM-, with the lone issue being a line of writing by the DJ that states an acquisition date of "November 11, 1961" and three track timings written in small blue ink. Otherwise pristine.
Record is NM, aside from a small amount of extremely superficial scuffing from coming out of the sleeve, this is unmarked, not even any noticeable spindle wear. Comes with the original Blue Note inner sleeve.
This is a pristine, highly collectible copy of this record, an amazing find.
I am a university professor of music here in the US who inherited this and other records (Blue Note, Norgran, Impulse!, Columbia, Prestige, Fantasy, Riverside, etc.) from a collector and former radio DJ a few years back. I am looking to sell off some of these records to collectors/audiophiles who can get more enjoyment out of them than I can.
Thanks for looking.
