When first released in the 1990s, Blue Note Records’ Blue Break Beats series was a huge commercial success and helped to kick off the worldwide “Dancefloor Jazz” phenomenon. The compilation's popularity also spawned several sub-series such as blue bossa and blue brazil, also to great commercial and critical acclaim. These EMI-originated releases have been missing from the market for years. Now they are coming back with a bang: blue break beats vol. 1 - 3 are being reissued as deluxe LPs, for the first time in gatefold sleeves and on red (Vol.2), blue (Vol. 1) and yellow (Vol. 3) limited edition vinyl.
