Party After Hours

A 8 track classic r&b album (23m 33s) — released January 1st 1970 on Jazzman

The 'Party After Hours' 10" album is an iconic early 1950s R&B collectible - one of the LA based Aladdin label's first forays into the then emergent long playing 33 1/3 album format.

As with the mega rare original pressing, we've pressed the 10" album on wax using virgin vinyl and faithfully reproduced the stunningly evocative original artwork - a beautiful pencil drawing of a late night bar room scene featuring a blues pianist and a dame whiling away the early hours. Lavishly restored and produced in a run of only 500 copies in a vintage-style, paste-on, thick card sleeve, this is our contribution to Record Store Day 2015.

The only difference to the original Aladdin release - is that we have made it better! Not only has the sound been much improved with hours of painstaking digital restoration, but we've also included a unique insert with our notes and pictures which offer a snapshot of the history of the long playing record format, as well as an overview of the featured artists. Including songs from West Coast jump blues luminaries such as Wynonie Harris and Amos Milburn, the laid back, lazy, boozey music is just as alluring, but the sum of its parts elevates Party After Hours above many comparable pieces, and as we continue to celebrate the revival of the vinyl album, it's also a timely reminder of a formative era for the LP record.
