Release Date: 16th September 2022
Tone Poet Series 180G Black Vinyl 2LP
Audiophile Vinyl Reissues Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes
To mark the 65th anniversary of the album's recording, 'Blue Train' will be released in two special editions on September 16 as part of Blue Note's acclaimed Tone Poet 'Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series'. A 1-LP mono pressing of the original album will be presented in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket, while the 2-LP stereo collection 'Blue Train: The Complete Masters' will include a second disc featuring seven alternate and incomplete takes, none of which have been released previously on vinyl, and four of which have never been released before on any format. 'The Complete Masters' comes with a booklet featuring never-before-seen session photos by Francis Wolff and an essay by Coltrane expert Ashley Kahn. Both Tone Poet Vinyl Editions were produced by Joe Harley, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original analog master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI.
