180g Vinyl LP!
Part of the Jazz Dispensary Top Shelf Series!
All-Analog Mastering from the Original Tapes by Kevin Gray!
Pressed at RTI!

In between being one of the most recorded studio drummers of all time (this "Purdie Shuffle" graced everything from Aretha Franklin to Steely Dan), Bernard Purdie squeezed in a few sessions of his own. Purdie Good! was recorded early in 1971 by legendary engineer Rudy Van Gelder. The album masterfully balances three Purdie originals with three covers, including a blazing romp through James Brown's "Cold Sweat." 180-gram LP remastered from the original tapes and packaged in a tip-on jacket.
