Blue Note Classic (LT series) discography

Blue Note, then owned by United Artists/Liberty, released a series of LPs as part of their LT series with the tag "Blue Note Classic" (or Jazz File in the UK) between 1979 and 1981. These albums were generally previously unreleased sessions. The series had a standard cover design. Many of the albums were also released in Japan by Blue Note/King with different covers. Some of the albums have subsequently been released on CD, in some cases with yet another different cover design. Only the original Blue Note Classic cover is shown on this page. Other cover designs, track lists and musician information can be viewed by using the "See more details" link when available.

The Blue Note Classic releases were only part of the LT series. Missing numbers in the sequence below represent non-jazz LPs or jazz LPs that are not Blue Note Classic releases - or, of course, Blue Note Classic releases that I have missed.
