Gettin’ Up – 1967

Label: Prestige
Cat # 7494 and 24224
Engineer: Rudy Van Gelder.
Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on March 3, 1967. Reissued along with “Nasty!” as “The Soulful Blues.”

Listed as a new release in the November 4, 1967 issue of Billboard, page 49. It notes that both mono and stereo versions were available.

Note: Johnny’s discographies usually include an album called “Ebb Tide” which is actually this album, including the same track listing and catalog number. I have never seen an actually copy or photo of an album called “Ebb Tide” yet, only a 45 rpm.
