"This year, Blue Note has launching a major 75th Anniversary Vinyl Initiative that is dedicated to reissuing high quality pressings and authentic reproductions of Blue Note's iconic packaging. Beginning in March 2014, we have started rolling out five remastered vinyl reissues every month. Although this program begins in celebration of Blue Note's 75th Anniversary, out catalog runs so deep that we will faithfully be reissuing five albums a month for many years to come" - Don Was, President, Blue Note Records
