Mode for Joe LP question

16 posts in this topic

my copy of the just issued RVG has the standard white/blue label, except the blue is a very light shade as a lot of the old BN 60's LP's had. Is the MFJ RVG the only one like this or do all the recent RVG's have the light blue as opposed to darker blue on the label side of the CD? Many of the BN reissues I have do contain varying shades of blue on the label side of the CD's but this one definitely looks like the light blue was intended and not a printing error.

I was wondering about this too. In addition to "Mode For Joe," I also picked up the Hubbard and Powell releases. All have the light blue on the CD, much lighter than previous Blue Note CD's I've seen.

yes very interesting that the new RVG's have this light blue. did someone in the art dept suddenly look at the old LP's and realize the design? BTW, do you mean the Morgan album rather than Hubbard? no Hubbard RVG was reissued in this batch.

Screw the label, is the cover the original brown?

The previous domestic cd was black.

Didn't this variation occur in the LPs too? Mine is a pre-Liberty/UA version and is brown, but now that I think about it, it seems that I've seen later LP editions that were black like that.

Just to settle the argument the Pantone colors for the Rudy Van Gelder Series disc labels are as follows:

Domestic RvGs- PMS 2738

Japanese RvGs- PMS 2728

New Issue RvGs- PMS 285

Don't you guys have anything to do? :D

Yeah, but stuff like this just builds the anticipation of actually doing it. Call it chore foreplay. ;)
