I'm diggin on some Vanguard jazz orchestra as I write this.
Below a recent flea market bargain, found yesterday for just 5 bucks in VG++ condition.
Original US-Mono first press EP Blue Note BLP 5065 . from 1955
......... Kenny Dorham - Afro-Cuban
......... Kenny Dorham - 1955 - Afro-Cuban - 04 Basheer's Dream
Those Blue Notes weren't EPs, they were 10" LPs (note the BLP prefix), a new format back in the day, before 12" LPs replaced them.
One of the very few Sam Most vinyls I have.
Alright. . Afro Cuban is my only "small LP" so far, by the way.
So back to 12 inch with Blue Note BLP 1513 - original first US Mono pressing from 1956,.
Another flea market bargain for five Euros, though the Vinyl & Cover condition unfortunately only VG , conservatively graded

It seems they are not seeing these replies. Or if they are, that they don’t understand how to fix the issue. Sorry to say I’ve ignored this user until they figure it out.
LOVE this record!

Milestone/Galaxy/Original Jazz Classics (2002) - A great sampler of 11 tracks dating 1966-79 from the Orrin Keepnews vault. Not too proud to say I picked this up for $1.99. Not all samplers are worth even that, but this one inspired me to buy several of the collections featured here.
