Denis Bryant ~ Take a Bryant Step (DiscReet Records) USA 1975
Catalog # DS 2215
Here's a beautiful copy of this "hyper rare" unreleased album for your consideration. Denis Bryant (aka Bryant Sterling) recorded this album in 1974 to be released on Frank Zappa's "DiscReet" lable in March of 1975. As fate would have it ..the album went unreleased. However, the album did get to the test pressing stage of production before the project was shelved.
Test pressings are extremely rare as few are made ...commonly 3 ~4 copies, but could be as high as 10 copies. The few copies that are pressed are sent to the artist / producer to check for pressing errors. If there are no problems found ..the green light will be given and the pressing plant will proceed with the full order. As we know, this released was aborted for some unknown (to us) reason. A shame because the album is very strong. Among the many great tracks are 2 Beatles songs "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "Drive My Car". Denis Bryants gritty soulful voice is truly exceptional throughout out the album as is the production as a whole.
Here is one of few opportunities that you'll have to own an original copy this lost & legendary album. This copy is is exceptionally nice condition, and is complete with with the credits / info insert, original white jacket, and inner sleeve.
**The record looks unplayed. (Side one) is in top NM condition. (Side two) has only a couple of very faint angel-hairs from sliding out of the paper sleeve. These are very faint ..absolutely nothing that will sound. In fact ..this record plays beautifully. You will not find a better sounding copy of this record.
**This rare test pressing was issued only in plain white jacket ..and that original jacket is includeed here. This one has the record number hand printed on the front ..as well as somebodys novel idea to add "Bryant's footstep" on the front.
**The "credits" paper insert is also included. as shown in the photo.
A very good deal at this price.
