Here are some Charlie Parker sessions from 1947 cut for the Dial label. This is the rarest 10″LP in my collection so far, and it’s important music that I’m fortunate to have in this early format. As far as I can tell this is the first release of this music. Some other 10″ LPs in my collection are reissues of music that originally came out on 78.
The vinyl has its share of light marks and wear, but it plays through fine and sounds solid for the era. The cover is quite nice, but 2 seams are split. There are a couple different groups on the record, but the opening track “Relaxing At Camrillo”, which is included below, employs the group listed on the A-side label.
