RE: 1959 Releases
Dave Brubeck's Time Out on Columbia was the first million seller LP.
The success of this LP also landed Dave with a cover photo on Time
Magazine. It is interesting that the biggest single from that release
was TAKE FIVE which was attributed to Paul Desmond and not Brubeck.
That is another story. Another interesting fact is that the royalties
from Take Five go to Paul Desmond's estate and those funds have been
designated to be donated to the American Red Cross. Also, the LP Time
Out has never been out of print at Columbia in the last 50 years.
I find such nuggets of information are of interest to listeners when
playing this music.
