For the first time as deluxe red, blue and yellow vinyl double LPs in gatefold sleeves. When first released in the 1990s, Blue Note Records’ blue break beats series was a huge commercial success and helped to kick off the worldwide “Dancefloor Jazz” phenomenon. The compilations’ popularity also spawned several sub-series such as blue bossa and blue brazil, also to great commercial and critical acclaim. These EMI-originated releases have been missing from the market for years. Now they are coming back with a bang: blue break beats vol. 1 – 3 are being reissued as deluxe LPs, for the first time in gatefold sleeves and on red, blue and yellow vinyl.
Limited double album on blue vinyl in a gatefold sleeve.
