big-john-patton-oh-baby-1964-blue-note-4

 

 

DID I DO OK: $15 it plays fine.  heres the deal---- so at this point rvg was doing 50/50 reduction for the monos i take it?  well comparing to stereo the mono is not exactly like the stereo with the mono button pressed, as i recall hearing it put-- 

 

i dont know how my stereo works but basically you can CRANK the mono louder (one speaker) than the stereo lp, which feeds back if you try n max te vol out 

 

Ive got......... its interesting- the stereo/mono set for ORGAN lps the most---- 

 

SERMON

now OH BABY!

Jack McDuff live prestige, not the one w/ rock candy

 

 

 

so im sticking w/ both for this title.  on the stereo he centered the organ i think but its the drums which gets most of the stereo spread i think,

 

cover had horrible masking tape all sides for no reason (cover not damaged underneath at all)- all came off ok.  

 

 

I think the stereo is mostly in the drums, am i wrong- who knows this date well.  

 

 

 

 

oh oh and guitar--  i think grant green might come through much better on the mono- like hes playin thru an amp- 

he gets a real good solo on track2, am going to compare those 

(*in "concert mcduff" was the mcduff lp i forgot)

that settles it- i really do see where the mono lovers come from, even if the session was cut in stereo- MONO IS JUST SO MUCH MORE FOCUSED, ITS SUCH A MORE FOCUSED LISTEN.  

i got rid of my stereo search for the new land but i think im gonna still keep the stereo for this-

 

_____________

 

THATS IT-- my mind is made up- i mean the mono is so much more focused for the Grant solo "oh baby " mono version, its like hes right there--- 

 

did they do 50/50 reduction then compress it more than they would compress the stereo, or something different after the 50/50 reduction

track 3 sounded ok in stereo though-- will compare which version i like better later

French DMM - Good, punchy sound and very nice session.

which do you prefer?

the horn lines might be a little more defined in stereo but the guitar sounds better in mono

Mono NY USA for ‘Oh Baby’ sounds really good. Good find.

I went to a house sale today and just as I was leaving spied a pile of LPs. Purchased three. Used some Discwasher on this one and sounded pretty good. However, I have a Studebaker cleaner coming tomorrow and will give it a good washing. Should sound even better.

10" Columbia. from 1949. Really, really charged performances, with a nice hot mastering to go with it. Whatever noise the record itself has taken on over the last 70 years is no match for that mastering!

feelin the spirit liberty labeled mono, which come in the old BN jacket, $15 today i am very happy w/ it i definetly did ok- as i was saying w/ the other lp, guitar for some reason the focus is so much clearer and direct on the mono

listening to grant green's solo on side two song one 'go down moses'- all i can think is.................................. this is better than every funky thing wes or george benson ever di......... no  i didnt say that, i didnt say that dawg.............................

Both BN Albums of Leo Parker are very fine, but I think this one is even better than the first session. I´ve read somewhere that Alfred Lion planned a Dexter-Leo Parker Encounter but it never happened, because Leo Parker died too early.

If I hadn't gotten shit-canned that was the one I had my eye on from Tommy's list.
