The Beam Me Up Scotty’s Series, Part 14/25 (LP)
If you can believe it, I also got this gem of an LP for $2. Seriously, who sells a Buddy Rich LP for $2? Well, Scotty’s, apparently. But I kind of felt bad giving him so little for so much…
Alright, surely you know that Buddy Rich is one of the greatest jazz drummers. Full stop. And this LP is just a whole lotta greatness. I could listen to this all day. In fact, I think I might… Right. On.
A Note To Be Noted (I think it was a Bb):
In further researching this LP I have here, I learned that it is an original UK release from 1979, and there were only 3000 copies made. Interestingly, this copy does not have a number like 348/3000 on it. Across the bottom, it just says “This album is number ____ in a limited edition of 3000 copies and is already a collector’s item.” And the ____ is a clean white rectangle. So maybe it never got printed with a number? I dunno. It sure doesn’t look worn off with age, this copy is damn near immaculate. Well, whatever the case, I feel like I got something cool, and that’s what really matters, right? Right!
