About this copy: This copy of Time Out is a 2003 test pressing by Classic Records, pressed on 200 gram black vinyl.

The disc is sealed in a plain white cover with loose wrap with a perforated tear-off strip.  The cover has a stamp in the upper right hand corner that says, “Sept. 8, 2003 CS-8192 A/B.”

As the cover is sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

The included finished cover is M-, with a tiny dent in one corner.

A beautiful copy of a terrific (and great-sounding!) LP and a Jazz classic.

Background: There isn’t much to say about Time Out that hasn’t been said before; the album is generally regarded as one of the greatest jazz albums of all time, and perhaps one of the greatest albums of all time regardless of genre. gave Time Out a 5 star review:

Dave Brubeck’s defining masterpiece, Time Out is one of the most rhythmically innovative albums in jazz history, the first to consciously explore time signatures outside of the standard 4/4 beat or 3/4 waltz time. It was a risky move — Brubeck’s record company wasn’t keen on releasing such an arty project, and many critics initially roasted him for tampering with jazz’s rhythmic foundation. But for once, public taste was more advanced than that of the critics. Buoyed by a hit single in altoist Paul Desmond’s ubiquitous “Take Five,” Time Out became an unexpectedly huge success, and still ranks as one of the most popular jazz albums ever. This belongs in even the most rudimentary jazz collection.
