UPDATE September 3, 2014 – Blue Note Illustrated Edition 2
With new content AND a new photo of the good Dottorjazz!
The American comedian Stephen Wright once commented: You can’t have everything. After all, where would you put it?
But now, Blue Note Collectors can have it all. Virtually. The Dottor Jazz Illustrated Blue Note First Pressing Reference Guide is available for download.
Every title from the Blue Note LP Catalogue, in mouth-watering graphic detail, covers, labels, variations, commentary – all in one Acrobat PDF volume. Indispensible for collectors, browse at your leisure, yours to keep and treasure. However you will have to find enough space to put it : 421mb, to be precise. Should take around three minutes to download with a fast connection, or over a year over a 56kbps modem on to 290 3.5″ floppy disks. The choice is yours, links below.
NEW: My thanks to Alan, from Berkley CA, for a second alternative link (copy.com) to an optimised Acrobat shrunk down to a skinny 137mb file. Recommended.
Mega: Alternative link
Copy.com: (Optimised Acrobat) recommended
A labour of love on the part of our resident Blue Note First Pressing Fundamentalist supported by other collectors who have contributed information and pictures. Never before has such an ambitious project been realised, and like the best things in life, it’s free, (sadly, unlike original Blue Notes)
The source file is in the cloud. Keep watching the skies, Blue Notes incoming…
