Sonny Rollins compositions
for the film Alfie (which benefited greatly from Oliver Nelson's arrangements)

WE GRADE THE VINYL AS NEAR MINT.
Some VERY LIGHT AND SUPERFICIAL abrasions – mostly sleeve scuffs - are (barely) visible, but are probably
inaudible, and do not affect visual
integrity or beauty of the vinyl. The original luster is very much intact, and
the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new (MINOR, superficial scuff noted
on 'He is younger than you are').
The record comes in the original stock inner sleeve.
The record has a ►Rudy
Van Gelder name, or his initials
(RVG) stamped or hand-etched in the trail-off vinyl (dead wax). On SOME Jazz labels (Blue Note, Savoy, Regent,
Prestige, Impulse, Verve…) this stamp signifies highly professional masterings

stereo copies of this album outnumber mono pressings by a ratio of at least
The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which
was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on
such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not
expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not
an inferior, digital recording!!!
