Notes:
Outward Bound, recorded on 1 April 1960, is Eric Dolphy's first date as a leader, containing six titles. A seventh piece from the same session, "April Fool", is only added on the 2006 RVG Remasters series (Prestige PRCD-30083-2). The first issues of the album on the label New Jazz have a cover painting by a friend of Dolphy's, Richard Jennings, who signed his work "The Prophet" (Prophet (22)). The first reissues (on Prestige) date from 1964 and now have a photograph of Dolphy on the cover.

Just grabbed a sealed copy from a local shop. Tremendous material, of course. Solid detail and presence on this pressing, loud and warm, however sadly my copy has some very noticeable wavy-gravy warping. A few pops & clicks, even after cleaning. For the price I paid (under 20 bucks) I'm not sorry I picked this up but I'll be on the lookout for a better/different pressing to replace it at some point soon.

Three great jazz album that belongs to the best with Dolphy starts with OUT - This one, Out to Lunch and Booker´s Out Front. There is also Out There which is also exeptional. For those who started with later Dolphy´s records, could be this one a surprise. Dolphy started with Chico Hamilton, and he quoted many hard bop players and jazz composers. Dolphy versatility is unbelievable, which documents Glad to Be Unhappy and his three originals with plenty of virtuosity and invention. Rare to listen so precise and clear sound of higher tones on bass clarinet. The next level of uniqueness brings only 22 years old Hubbard. Of course rhythm section is not only the support and works like perfect band. This repress has nothing to do with the 80´s OJC pressing. Despite digital source, easily pulls in with detail ( Byard voice), energy and clarity, probably by quality Van Gelder recording. I have never listen original...The separation of trumpet and alto sax in common parts is clear, as well clarity and warmness of clarinet. RTI pressing is silent. Easily recommended.

This pressing sounds just fine and is a great alternative to an original pressing if you can't source or afford one.

I found a sealed copy of this 1982 George Horn pressing. Very quiet with excellent sound. The music is accessible and fantastic. It is definitely worth seeking out a clean copy of this ‘82 OJC issue.

I have a copy of this with the exact same cover and labels as the pictures, the same matrix / run out (PRST•7311•A-1 is hand written. VAN GELDER and STEREO are stamped), but the record plays Eric Dolphy - Out There. Does anyone know anything about this mispress?

This album and live at five spot sessions are my kind of eric dolphy recordings. Great sounding pressing, you really can't go wrong with japanese victor releases from 70s and 80s.

Fantastic sounding reissue from the original RVG cut. Issued only 3-4 years after the New Jazz original, the record and its sound are of utmost quality.
