Count Basie and the Kansas City 7 (IMPL 8017) (1962)

SAM_0320One of my recurring crate-digger fantasies involves me finding a box of Impulse! Lps. In my greedy reverie, all manner of glorious John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Michael White, Gabor Szabo, &tc gatefold albums present themselves easily identified by their orange and black spines, along with the offer of ten quid for the box from the seller. Well, last Sunday a titchy piece of that dream came true when I found this l’il number at a bootfair in Wincheap.
SAM_0321True, it’s only one album and a 1977 re-issue. And it’s not as far out as I usually like my 60s jazz. But it is a heavy cardstock, gatefold in almost mint condish and it sounds absolutely fantastic. At £1.50 it was well worth it.
