Offered for sale is a rare original Japanese stereo pressing of Suddenly the Blues by Leo Wright, including the nearly-always-missing original obi.

This LP featured Kenny Burrell on guitar.

About this copy: This copy of Suddenly the Blues is an original 1963 Japanese pressing on the Atlantic “bullseye” label.

The cover is VG++ with trace corner wear and a neat punch hole that goes through the cover and obi.  The obi is VG++, with a few minor stains, but no tears.

There is no insert; we don’t know if one was originally included or not.

The disc is VG+ on side one, with a few light marks.  Side two is VG++, with a few faint scuffs.

A nice copy of a rare LP that is almost never found complete.

Background: Originally released in 1961, Suddenly the Blues was the second album by sax/flute/clarinet player Leo Wright.

Allmusic.com gave Suddenly the Blues a 3 star review.
