In the tradition of labels wholly devoted to vinyl re-pressing, Sam Records puts
out a product of top-notch musical and visual quality.
While so many labels confine themselves to re-mastering digital versions and
reproducing the original artwork by simply scanning the cover, Sam Records uses
only master tapes and re-creates record covers using the original photographs,
paintings and/or drawings. That generally involves some painstaking detective
work, so its a job for conscientious professionals, not corner-cutting
Sam Records' re-pressings pay tribute to the people the musicians, producers,
labels, photographers, graphic artists and sound engineers who created the
original recordings that have become enduring legends of 1950s and 60s jazz.

"Baker is relaxed and mellifluous throughout, but the significance of the session comes from the bold playing of Richard Twardzik, a classically trained 24-year-old pianist who gained a reputation for innovation and daring... As physical objects, the Sam Records LPs are gorgeous. The sleeves are authentic copies of the originals, with European-style fold-over seams and crisp, vibrant graphics, and the Pallas-pressed, flat-edge records are gleaming slabs that play with essentially no noise." - Marc Mickelson, The Audio Beat, Rated 4/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sound
