Elvin Jones, along with Charlie Mariano, Richard Davis, Roland Hanna, and Elvin’s brother Hank, went into a recording studio in 1965 and offered a friendly note to John Coltrane. The end result was the great Dear John C., originally released on Impulse. Analogue Productions will now be releasing the album for the audiophile market 46 years after its original release.

Dear John C. will be pressed up as a double 45rpm release on 180g vinyl, and is scheduled for release around February 2011. Considering the price for this new pressing (anywhere between $45 to $65), normal record buyers may find a need to save up or try to find an older pressing. Again, the album is being presented for the first time as a double LP at 45rpm, so if quality is a must, make sure to widen the hole in your checkbook or PayPal account for this one.
