Jay Jay Johnson / The Emminent, Volume 1 / Mono Blue Note

THE PRESSING

Identical to an original from 1955 but for one thing: the Side 2 label.

Side 1 is a Lexington. Side 2 is a New York 23.

BOTH sides are 9M. Both sides are RVG-scrawled (not stamped), and both sides are Plastylite (“ear’d”). The three holy grails of Blue Note pressings.

Cover is a Lexington.

THIS COPY

A mostly beautiful thing. Few marks on each side. However, this being a Deep Groove, they’re mostly inaudible. There are a few faint clicks but absolutely nothing significant or jarring.

Note that I could not find this exact pressing online, but did find one that was slightly later (Side 1 and the cover were 23s as opposed to Lexingtons).

Unfortunately the rear cover has been marked up by a radio station, just like its matching Volume 2. Buy the two of them together for $475.
