The Pure Pleasure… of Vinyl Records
There really is nothing quite like it. It’s the touch, the feel, you have to stop and stare, the cover, the real thing, even the smell.
Its tangible, you can feel it, see it, study it, muse/dream over it, it’s real, someone has spent hours and hours over its construction and presentation. Pure Pleasure Records is just that, Pure Pleasure and that is what it has set out to be.
The music and the physical record. Something to keep, treasure, admire and above all enjoy.Of course with vinyl it’s not just a record, it’s the cover, the sleeve notes, you are holding a unique package, produced by craftsmen.

Artist: Ruth Brown
Title: Miss Rhythm
About: Once fired from Lucky Millinder's band, it was the great Duke Ellington who recommended Ruth Brown to Herb Abramson and his fledgling Atlantic Records in 1949. Good thing, too, because it was Ruth Brown who put Atlantic on the map, make no mistake. She did that with 24 R&B hit singles…
Artist: Modern Jazz Quartet
Title: The Sheriff
About: Recorded in 1963, The Sheriff features the Modern Jazz Quartet in fine swinging form.

Artist: Norman Connors
Title: Love From The Sun
About: This jazz recording is considered as the 'magnum opus' of master "drummer extraordinaire'', composer, arranger, producer, and leader Norman Connor's in a career that has spanned 4 decades. This recording is what many will consider the debut of the legendary vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater…

By the age of nine…
Artist: Lee Konitz
Title: Inside Hi-
About: This excellent recording features altoist Lee Konitz with two separate quartets during 1956.

Artist: Charles Lloyd Quatet
Title: Love In
Artist: Carmen McRae
Title: Sings Lover Man & Other Billie Holiday Classics
About: With her strong alto, huge range, and ability to change moods, McRae varies her sound throughout, sometimes sounding deliberately gravelly, then switching to softly sweet and romantic, matching the timbre of the instruments accompanying her. She alternates her tempo from slow and dramatic to lively, jazzy, flirty, or intimate.…
Artist: Harold Vick
Title: Don’t Look Back
About: For a label that wasn't around long, Strata East achieved the same sort of label recognition that Impulse! or Blue Note managed to build. In other words, you knew what you were getting when you bought a record on the label, even if you didn't know the names on the outside of the cover…
