I love this album,
Johnny Coles Little Johnny C
As Johnny himself is a great trumpetter and the other session members like Joe Henderson, Duke Peason, Pete LaRoca and the rest are playing great.
But... the album is not that popular...
There are not many reissues available on this title. Even here in Japan, King Record reossued it with GXK Series with a popular GREEN CROCODILE OBI in the early 80s' and Toshiba EMI reissued it with BST Series with OBI in the early 90's, only 2 reissues.
To compare the 2 reissues of Little Johnny C, I believe King Record GXK is far much better in terms of sound quality.
Apart from the sound quality, the WIDE GREEN CROCODILE OBI is really cute fitting the jacket design!
What do you think about it?
