Jazz Vinyl Give-Away: Dexter Gordon on Blue Note
Time to complete our latest give-away contest. It’s been so long perhaps some of you, like me, had forgotten what we are giving away. Here it is: Dexter Gordon, Blue Note LA393-H2. This is part of the Blue Note Re-Issue Series from 1975. It is a double LP and it is still in its original factory seal. The record is a compilation of some of Dexter’s best work on Blue Note, starting with selections from Dexter Calling in 1961 and extending to Gettin’ Around in 1965. As always, the rules to be eligible for the give-away are simple: All you have to do is comment on the Jazz Collector site during the course of the contest and you are put in the pool of names. That’s it. I am also pleased to report that the number of comments and commenters on the site has reached record-high numbers and we have
more eligible contestants — 27 total — than we’ve ever had before. That is quite gratifying. Here are the eligible names: Michael Peoples; Doug; Rudolf; CeeDee; Joaquim; BryanK; Gregorious; Giovanni Zanoni; GW; William; Bob Brooks; Don-Lucky; Bethellodge; Bob; Japhy; Jack; Geraint; Max; Michel; Robert; Baz; RL1856; Jason; Erich Schultz; Brian; Blipp; PFunk. And it is time to bring in the lovely Mrs. JC and place all of the eligible names on the desk and scatter them about and . . . the winner is . . . BryanK. Congratulations BryanK. The sealed Dex is yours. All you have to do is send us your mailing address in an email, to email@example.com, and we will send you the record, free of charge, and we even pay for the shipping. Hope you enjoy it. I will spend some time pondering the next record for the next contest and I will probably post it sometime tomorrow.
