No, this was someone who did real covers. But maybe couw did that (although I didn't think so)?

Ah, gotcha. I didn't know that a BNBB member made actual covers. I do remember couw making some covers for the board. One was his version of The Trainwreck.

The pressing plant closed due to COVID-19.

All hell will therefore break loose on the Hoffman Forum due to Tone Poet Deprivation Syndrome..

I think this current Blakey cover is fine, but the use of red (if I'm being picky) somehow feels wrong. Reid Miles seemed to favor pinks and purples (and oranges) — pastels, generally speaking — over red. Yellow on red also seems a combination that he (generally) would have avoided. When Miles used red, it often appeared over white. (Leeway is an exception that comes to mind.)

I'm told it will be pressed on some sort of red/orange/yellow splatter colored vinyl for a "special edition." Saw a pic on instagram and it looks fuuuugly!

That's the limited edition pressing from Vinyl Me Please. The Blue Note version will be on straight black vinyl.

And that was the original pressing, not some later limited boutique job.

Yeah, I bought a used copy in the late 70s just for the look. Too bad the music wasn't as good as the look.

Along with maybe 3,000 other rock LP's, this one resides in my garage.
