In between being one of the most recorded studio drummers of all time (the “Purdie Shuffle” graced everything from Aretha Franklin to Steely Dan), Bernard Purdie squeezed in a few sessions of his own. Purdie Good! was recorded early in 1971 by legendary engineer and audio obsessive Rudy Van Gelder at his bespoke studio, and it masterfully balances three Purdie-penned originals with three covers of hits-du-jour, utmost among them a blazing romp through James Brown’s “Cold Sweat.” This 180-gram reissue of Purdie Good! was cut from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI, and comes packaged in a tip-on jacket.
