Label: Groove Replica
Product Type: VINYL LP
Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing including bonus CD edition. Includes bonus tracks. This was Blakey's first album for Blue Note in several years, after a period of recording for a number of different labels, and marked both a homecoming and a fresh start. Originally the LP was self-titled, but the instant popularity of the bluesy opening track "Moanin'" (by pianist Bobby Timmons) led to it's becoming known by that title.
