1. German Liberty Blue Note
1969 Stereo, VAN GELDER and “Made in Germany” in the deadwax. Recorded in 1968, this would be a first release by Liberty. Identical label design to basic Division of Liberty labels (except chopping off part of the “R” registered trademark) except the addition of GEMA logo presumably the German copyright/licencing organisation equivalent to the French SACEM and Japanese JASPAC, and copyright declaration in German around the rim. A curiosity, indeed.

German pressings are generally highly regarded, especially the Sixties label SABA (which later became MPS)
