Another great looking cover and yet another one where i’ve had to resort to buying a reissue. I’ve seen a few original copies on ebay, right now there’s one copy on ebay with a staggering starting bid of $1700. The lastest original copy sold at the end of june for almost $900, so in other words i’ll probably be stuck with my reissue for quite some time.
Kenny Burrell – S/T (Blue Note – BST 81543)
I believe i found this on discogs, where there’s currently another two copies for sale right now. I think it’ sometimes dubbed at Vol. 2 though i’m not sure why? Anyway, it’s a reissue on Blue Note from the mid 70’s. I won’t claim that it’s rare in any capacity but i still haven’t seen too many of it, at least not compared to the reissues of Blue Lights which i feel are a lot more common.
The condition is more than OK, at one point it has fallen of my wall and gotten a little dent to one of the corners. It’s mostly visible from the back so it’s not something that bothers me too much. A clean, good looking cover with a very intersting perspective. I must admit i like the original better with the red and yellow text against the black and white drawing. But i guess you can’t always have it all…
