happy you like DG...I've been a fan for decades. He's in my top five all time horn players. BTW, I don't do vinyl any more.

Discogs would be my suggestion as that will give you all the versions, dates produced and from what country. also will let you buy from someone right there.
I do not know this particular recording, but have others on original jazzland and prestige and the 1980s vintage “original jazz classics” (OJC) pressings. In general, the OJCs sound good, but when compared to an original, it’s no contest... sounds like someone threw cheese cloth over the speakers for the OJCs. I can’t speak to the recent issue, but if it is not on a label that is known to be good (e.g. music matters) and is some searching can’t produce details about the sourcing of the masters and the cutting chain, be wary.
whether the original is worth 50 bucks, that’s up to you and how badly you want the best sounding pressing....
