180g Vinyl LP Reissue Cut from the Original Analog Tapes by Kevin Gray, Pressed at RTI and Packaged in a Tip-On Jacket
In between being one of the most recorded studio drummers of all time (the “Purdie Shuffle” graced everything from Aretha to Steely Dan), Bernard Purdie squeezed in a few sessions of his own. Purdie Good! was recorded early in 1971 by legendary engineer and audio obsessive Rudy Van Gelder at his bespoke studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey and has all the quality hallmarks of that esteemed locale. Three Purdie-penned originals are balanced by three covers of hits du jour, utmost among them an absolutely blazing romp through James Brown’s “Cold Sweat.” 180g vinyl LP reissue from Craft Recordings cut from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray, pressed at RTI and packaged in a tip-on jacket.
