The Individualism Of Gil Evans
Early US Mono
The VAN GELDER-stamped deadwax on this matches what Discogs is calling a first, but the label is slightly different. The label matches what Discogs calls a second but doesn’t match the deadwax. Essentially, this pressing is not on Discogs and I’d consider it a first (the VG stamp was not on the second). Laminated gatefold cover.
Faint marks on both sides but they don’t affect play. A bit of occasional underlying crackle and a light tick here and there but no skips or other nonsense. Sounds terrific despite those caveats. Great pressing. Only copy I’ve found.
