If it's the same as this one, the winner has a pretty good deal I would say!

it really is an anomoly. i should of bid higher. but then im getting into mere collecting in a way, i mean, i already have a vangelder stamped lp of it, but on the other end, i cant believe nobody knows about these, maybe its time to put the call into rudy.....

My guess is that it may be a promo, or perhaps a jukebox only release. The title strip suggests the latter.

Several years ago at a jazz record show, a dealer had two colored vinyl Blue Note LP's - one was a Jimmy Smith, can't remember the other one. I looked at them very carefully, as did a number of other collectors, experts, and industry people, and they appeared to be authentic New York pressings, identical in every way to to the standard issues. The theory was offered that somebody at the pressing plant may have run off a few of these for personal or private use, and they were never circulated.

Columbia was doing colored vinyl promos in 1965. Since this record dates from around then, maybe Columbia was pressing Blue Note at the time?

I saw them as well. I seem to remember the dealer had several odd colored vinyl issues, some of them multi-colored. Can't remember now if the multi-colored one was on Blue Note or not.

I have a copy of this. I think I won it on ebay for less then $10 a few years ago. It might be rare but it doesn't seem like it has any real value so it's just a matter of one showing up somewhere.

It looked nice on one of my shelves for a while and now it's buried somewhere......

it sounds fine, red vinyl doesnt really affect the sound, the edit is good: better than other bluenote45 edits ive encountered (eg. sidewinder)...its side a: head/joe solo, side b: kd solo + outro....

dude, that woud be seriously, the coolest thing ever.
