· SONNY ROLLINS with KENNY DREW, KENNY DORHAM, MAX ROACH AND GEORGE MORROW – SONNY BOY – ORIGINAL 1956 PRESTIGE RECORDS MONO LP 7207 (THE SESSIONS RECORDED IN 1956, FIRST RELEASED ON AN ALBUM IN 1960)
· ORIGINAL U.S. PRESSING
*** INSANELY RARE TEST PRESSING ***
· THE PLAIN, GENERIC, WHITE PRESTIGE TEST PRESSING LABELS COME WITH NAME "SONNY ROLLINS" INSCRIBED ON BOTH SIDES, OF THE DISC, WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT BE THE PERSONAL SIGNATURES OF THE LEGENDARY TENOR SAXMAN. NAMELY, IN LATE '50'S AND EARLY '60s MANY RECORDING LABELS (SUCH AS PRESTIGE OR BLUE NOTE) REQUIRED THEIR ARTISTS TO PLACE THEIR SIGNATURES ON THE FINAL VERSION OF THE TEST PRESSINGS, THUS SIGNIFYING THEIR FINAL ACCEPTANCE OF THE PRESSING AS READY FOR MARKET RELEASE (SEE THE PARAGRAPH AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LABEL). THIS MAY BE ONE OF THESE CASES (SORRY, WE ARE UNABLE TO VERIFY OR GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE SIGNATURE)
· DEEP GROOVE PRESSING
· The record has a ►Rudy Van Gelder’s name or his initials (RVG) clearly stamped or hand-etched in the trail-off vinyl (dead wax)
· THIS IS THE ORIGINAL, AUTHENTIC, U.S. TEST PRESSING; THIS IS NOT A REISSUE, AN IMPORT, OR A COUNTERFEIT PRESSING.
· CLEAN, WEAR-FREE LABELS
· THICK, HEAVY VINYL PRESSING
(►PLEASE SEE THE IMAGE OF THE COVER, LABEL OR BOTH, SHOWN BELOW)
(Note: this is a REAL image of the ACTUAL item you are bidding on. This is NOT a "recycled" image from our previous auction. What you see is what you’ll get. GUARANTEED!)
Amazing !!! An unbelievable piece: What we have here is an unheard-of TEST PRESSING of this classic Jazz album – easily one of the top-10 Greatest Sonny Rollins titles ever ; The generic white test pressing label is (almost) entirely blank and without any details whatsoever EXCEPT Prestige catalog number, but with one very important detail – possible signature of Sonny Rollins, who may have signed on the label, thereby signifying his acceptance of the test pressing of the album.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
(a) 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.
(b) 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 either done by - or personally authorized by - the legendary engineer himself.
(c) 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!
(d) The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings).
(e) Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!
COVER : This reference pressing comes without any custom jacket, and will be shipped in its original plain, generic, white cardboard cover (NOT GRADED SEPARATELY)
