Offered for sale is a an early 1960s Mono pressing of Time Out by the Dave Brubeck Quartet on the Columbia”6 eye” label

About this copy:  This copy of Time Out is an early mono second pressing  on the original Columbia “6 eye” label that was in use from the time of the album’s original 1959 release until early 1962.

This is technically a second issue; probably from 1960.  The LP cover does mention the song “Take Five” but the label does not have a small “CBS” at the very top, which was added to the label in 1961.

The cover is VG , with wear at the mouth and bottom edge

The disc is VG, with a few light marks on each side.  It should play well.

A nice play copy of an iconic jazz album.

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.

AllMusic.com 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.
