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.

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.

Splatter? Like in "previously eaten" ... and then, uhm, splattered? Those vinyl fans are a weird bunch :g

No need to talk about the limited edition splattered pressing from Vinyl Me Please as it sold it in a few days. Hot times for limited edition vinyl I guess.

Is Patrick Roques still alive and active?  Loved his BN reissue work, even more than the iconic Reid Miles work that inspired it.

Yes - I think it was reasonably available in the late 90s era before the Mosaic was released.

I own it.  It's good, but I long for the other session from Prime Element (the one with Lee Morgan) to be on individual CD.  It's on the Elvin Mosaic.

That piano-less quartet Elvin session with Lee Morgan is one of the very best of the best dates in that entire Elvin BN box.

I don’t often buy individual CD’s from Mosaics I already own, but I would certainly buy a copy of that date with Lee as a single, beyond any shadow of a doubt.

I agree that Elvin Jones date with Lee is very fine, but it's not really a quartet since there are two percussionists on it,  Or don't they count in your book?  It's interesting to me that Elvin would add Candido, etc. to his dates in this period - it's not like he 'needed' them, but he must have enjoyed their company.  Lee did a bunch of interesting sideman dates in this era, many not issued at the time.

Yes, a lot of excellent work with Jackie McLean that sat in the can for 15 years.
