Rare 1960 first UK pressing 7-track deep groove mono LP, a landmark recording and one of the greatest musical achievements in American jazz. Includes the jaw-dropping rollercoaster ride of the title track and Countdown,plus the beautiful, mature ballad Naima, written by Trane for his then-wife, Juanita Naima Grubbs. The front laminated sleeve has some discolouring at the edges but has survived over half a century and remains in very good condition. The vinyl has been professionally cleaned and has come up looking sparkling, with just a few light paper scuffs to show for its age. The condition is excellent and the sound immense!

Apart from some light storage wear the insert is in outstanding condition, the vinyl is immaculate.
Original 1972 Japanese Odeon label 2-track black vinyl 7" single also including Summer '68, housed in a record company sleeve and comes complete with a unique black and grey wrap-around picture insert with lyrics printed on the inside – now hard to find, this copy is in near mint condition – quite a gem!
