Sounds about right.

I bought mine in 1961, from Harrod's record department. I guess it was an imported copy, as it has the stamp-sized "Mecolico" PRS sticker and one from Chappel Music on the back, with the amount of fees paid, just a few old pence. 

This recording was really to help Adderley get some recognition, but has always been considered more a Davis album. I also bought Adderley's "Cannonball Takes Charge" at the same time. I replaced both with CDs when they became available to save wear on the originals. I had to wait a hell of a long time for them to release the second one on CD.

The question asked  by Miles; "Is that what you wanted Alfred?" at the end of the track was directed at Alfred Lyon, the producer. So I guess it was.

This album has never lost its appeal for me.

Theme music for Daddy-O Daylie, a long-time rhyming jazz radio show host in Chicago.
"Can't sleep? Don't count sheep - Count Basie!" I used to listen to Daddy-O's noon show every day while at college. It was sad to hear this Cannonball Adderley record each day while he was in a coma in 1975, never to recover.
"Early to bed and early to rise, and you'll never meet some of our most interesting citizens!"

I bought this LP in the early 60's and it would definitely be on my desert island short list.

I hear Adderley wrote this for Chicago Legend DJ Daddy-O Daylie.

My aunt brought it to my mother in 1964-65 from New York. I still remember the album sleeve.
