DIZZY GILLESPIE  DEE GEE DG 1004 10





e © AP6.0DIZZY GILLESPIE DEE GEE DG 1004 10" LP. THE BE BOP MASTERPIECE WHICH DIZZY RELEASED ON HIS OWN DEE GEE LABEL WHICH HE OWNED AND OPERATED FOR A VERY BRIEF TIME IN THE EARLY 1950'S. DEE GEE 10" LP'S ARE VERY RARE SIMPLY BECAUSE EVERY RECORD HAD A PRESSING OF 250 COPIES EACH (I LEARNED THIS DIRECTLY FROM DIZZY IN THE EARLY 1980'S). ACTUALLY HE MADE MORE FROM THE SALES OF 78 RPM SINGLES WITH DEE GEE THAN WITH 10" LP'S, SO THE 78'S HE PRESSED MORE THAN ONCE. SADLY, HE LOST THE LABEL WITHIN 2 YEARS OF STARTING IT AS IT WAS JUST TOO EXPENSIVE TO MAINTAIN. IN THAT TIME HOWEVER HE NOT ONLY RELEASED SEVERAL OF HIS OWN SESSIONS, BUT ALSO RECORDED OTHER BOP LEGENDS WHO WERE CLOSE FRIENDS FOR THEIR OWN LP'S ON DEE GEE. THIS LP IS SUPER THICK, VERY HEAVY, DEEP GROOVE, FLAT EDGE, PRESSED AT GEM IN NYC. CONDITON IS SOLID VG++, NM- WITH JUST A FEW SUPERFICIAL MARKS WHICH DO NOT SOUND. VINYL IS FLAT LUSTER AND SHEEN ('FLAT LUSTER' TRANSLATES TO THE VINYL HAVING A MATTE BLACK APPEARANCE LIKE A 78, BUT THIS VINYL TYPE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FIDELITY) THE SOUND IS QRISP AND DETAILED FINE HI FIDELITY WITH JUST A SLIGHT BIT OF BACKGROUND NOISE INHERENT IN THE ORIGINAL RECORDING AND NOT PART OF THE VINYL. THIS SESSION WAS RECORDED AT RADIO RECORDERS IN LOS ANGELES, THE SAME STUDIO ROSS RUSSELL USED FOR THE DIAL SESSIONS. THE COVER IS THICK AND HEAVY, NM- WITH SOME EDGE WEAR AND A BIT OF BROWNING ON THE PLAIN BACK (ALL DEE GEE 10" LP'S HAVE A PLAIN BACK). BEAUTIFUL ABSTRACT ART OF DIZZY BY THE GREAT, PROLIFIC BURT GOLDBLATT. A VERY RARE FIRST AND ONLY ISSUE OF THIS MODERN JAZZ CLASSIC FROM THE DEE GEE RECORD COMPANY.
