Blue Note Classic Vinyl Reissue Series All-Analog 180g Vinyl LP Mastered by Kevin Gray Directly from the Original Master Tapes and Manufactured at Optimal in Germany

Blue Note Records has announced the continuation of the Classic Vinyl Reissue Series which presents 180g vinyl LP reissues in standard packaging mastered by Kevin Gray and manufactured at Optimal. The pressings are all-analog whenever an analog source is available, with Gray mastering directly from the original master tapes. While the first 16 titles of the series focused on the best-known Blue Note classics from the 1950s and 60s, the new run of titles curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman broadens its scope to span the many eras and styles of the legendary label's eight-decade history presented by themes: Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Post-Bop, Avant-Garde, The 70s, The Rebirth, and Hidden Gems.

Organist Ronnie Foster has collaborated with many greats over the course of his career from George Benson to the Jacksons to Stevie Wonder who brought the organist in to record on his seminal album Songs In The Key Of Life. But Foster first caught the ear of Blue Note Records co-founder Francis Wolff with his standout performance on Grant Green's searingly funky live album Alive! recorded in 1970. Foster would go on to make his own Blue Note debut two years later with the 1972 jazz-funk classic Two Headed Freap produced by George Butler. The vibrant 8-song set included funky covers of Al Green, Wilson Pickett, and Joe Simon along with 5 compelling originals including the propulsive opening track "Chunky," the breezy jam "Summer Song," and "Mystic Brew," a visionary track which A Tribe Called Quest would later sample on their hip hop classic "Electric Relaxation."
