Johnny Griffin The Congregation rare 1958 First Issue US LP… sleeve designed by Andy Warhol

The Congregation – Very rare 1958 first US issue 5-track mono LP on the ‘West 63rd’ address label with no ‘r’ below ‘Blue Note’, a “deep groove” both sides of the label & an Andy Warhol designed sleeve. In the run-offs, there is an ‘RVG’ stamper & ‘ear’ etching both sides. Gutsy & biting, this was a high point in Johnny’s career, with solid backing from Sonny Clark on Piano, Paul Chambers on Bass & Kenny Dennis on Drums.
