Herbie Hancock "The Prisoner", Blue Note white label promo with Van Gelder stamp (apparently for the UK market).

Interesting - I have that UK issue in a blue/white Liberty. A short-lived phenomenon.

Didn’t realise they were on Mortimer St.

I am curious to know what sets it apart from a US release. My copy is in US printed sleeve, so only the sticker reveals it as a UK release. Were these pressed in UK (though the VAN GELDER stamp maybe suggests they were not)?

From my recollection the sleeve is US but the vinyl indicates made in the UK on the label. A bit like the German Liberty LPs of the vintage. I’ll have to check but I think it is ‘Van Gelder’ in the runout.

These UK issues were definitely very short lived. In 1970 the economy was still doing OK. The industrial unrest and power cuts of 1972 onwards would have decimated budgets allocated to UK Blue Note shenanigans. Major own-goal. :rolleyes:

The Huckle-buck & Robbins' Nest - A Buck Clayton Jam Session (Columbia CL-548). I do like these jam sessions a lot. This music has slowly become one of my favorite Mosaic box sets. As great as these LP cuts are, hearing the unedited tunes with the full alternate takes on the Mosaic set is even better.

On a Buck Clayton kick... Buck Clayton with Buddy Tate - Buck & Buddy Blow The Blues (Stereo Swingville SV 2030). This is an unusual LP for the times as it has a regular purple Prestige/Swingville label but a textured cover, which I've not seen on an older Prestige release. As for the music, I do dig those blues, so what's not to like here?

Clifford Brown's Study In Brown, Nippon Phonogram pressing from 1971.

This was one of the first jazz albums I heard at home when growing up, so I know it well and there is obviously some nostalgia involved. However, I haven't listened to it for some years, and I am probably hearing some things today that were beyond me in the past. 

The interplay in the band is just superb, and to me, Harold Land is the ideal partner for Brownie. Great tunes, too; the perfect hard bop album.

That Clayton Mosaic is a corker - love the way it captures the 30th St studio ambience. My CD version was obtained from the ‘Horse’s Mouth’ i.e. M. Cuscuna.

hampton hawes is excellent on rhodes- blues for walls and northern windows.  this is not "throwaway fusion"- these are very thoughtful albums and hawes has a good rhodes sound

I rather like the solo album, Universe.

this, the pointer sisters 2nd to last album, and last lp, is grade AAA fantastic.  Every track is a keeper, i feel no need to skip one second.  SQ= 9, maybe 9.5/10, it sounds good, tracks are great.  on MOTOWN (1990)

Picture 1 of 6

ok maybe last track could be slightly better but its still great production, up until the last track i was 100% into it

In the middle of a re-spin of this one I read that saxophonist Don Weller has just passed a couple of days ago. He had been in ill health for a while but this is particularly sad news. RIP.

One of the best of the UK tenorists, for sure.

A nice album! I have never seen a combined Columbia/Milestone release. Was that a short-lived thing? 

Now spinning Clare Fischer's 'Jazz Song' on the Revelation label. One of two fine solo albums Fischer recorded for the label in 1973; the other one is 'The State of his Art'.
