Offered for sale is a rare blue vinyl pressing of the 1967 LP Jackpot, by the Dave Brubeck Quartet. This copy may be unique; we have never seen or heard of another copy of this LP pressed on colored vinyl.
About this copy: This particular pressing of Jackpot is quite unusual in that it has been pressed on deep blue vinyl. While the record appears to be black vinyl with a casual glance, you can clearly see that it is blue when held to the light.
The label is the original 1960s, “two-eye” Columbia stereo label, CS-9512. The matrix numbers are stamped in the dead wax as follows:
The pressing has a deep groove on both sides of the label, which is unusual for this title, as is the font used to print the song titles.
The cover is VG++, with just traces of wear at the corners. The record is VG+, with just a couple of small marks, though it does have an odd haze on the inner half of side 2. This may have been caused by a chemical reaction with the album’s original paper sleeve.
Other than the above, we don’t know anything about the origins of this LP. Record company employees have been known to occasionally press unauthorized colored vinyl pressings for their own use “after hours” and this may be one of those.
Regardless of its origin, this is one of the rarest and most unusual Dave Brubeck LPs we have ever encountered.
