Uptown Records - Vinyl

12 posts in this topic

I have lately played some of my Uptown-LPs again - after 20+ years: What a wonderful re-discovery.

Philly Joe's two "Dameronia"-LPs, the two Joe Thomas, Dicky Wells etc....

Can anyone guide me to a listing of the LPs on that label ?

The Uptown-Homepage only lists the CDs (plus a few of the last LPs still available).

Thanks for your help !

Unfortunately, I don't have a list either. But "Dameronia" is indeed a nice one.

Others I have:

Pepper Adams, Live at Fat Tuesday's

Dickie Wells, Lonesome Road

Carl Fontana, Great Fontana

Haywood Henry, Gentle Monster

JR Monterose, Live in Albany

JR Monterose and Tommy Flanagan, A Little Pleasure

Hod O'Brien, Bits and Pieces (Uptown?)

Freddie Redd, Lonely City

Charlie Rouse, Social Call

Buddy Tate - (Didn't note title)

Frank Wess and Johnny Coles, Two at the Top

I think this information is correct. It's what I noted when I digitized the LPs for my MP3 player, so typos are possible.

A listing of Uptown titles is available HERE.

The last lp issue was 27.32. The balance of the list is cd only. I see the list hasn't been updated in a while.

Thanks, Chuck !

Silly me - I should have checked there.

Yes it is. Too bad they included a new version of The Thespian. The BN recording was the pinnacle of his discography for many fans and the new one fell short. Something else should have been included to show the special qualities of this wonderful date. Please pay attention to the session - a fine one. My complaint is only about one tune.

Not issued. TBR means "to be released". Don't hold your breath.

Right, I'm with you there.
