    Rare Blue Note work from Dexter Gordon – an album that was recorded during Gordon 's legendary run for the label in the 60s, but not issued until a brief vinyl pressing nearly 15 years later! The record's got Gordon vamping in tight hardbop formation – a sound that's strongly 60s Blue Note all the way through, and which shows the great control that the label helped bring to Dex's music.

    THOSE WERE THE DAYS, a good tune rarely heard, changes tempos nicely from slow to medium (and back again) and contains a nostalgic, plaintive solo by Dex. Like most OJC CD reissues it's a bit on the short side, but Dexter was in good form and the date was a solid one. (MORE POWER is just as good, if not slightly better.)/5(3).
