One of the interesting aspects about this album is Adele's singing style and vocals,Its something that can catch you when you least expect it.
Adele has a singing style that is warm, Clear and personal almost as if she singing to you as a single person alone in the room.
"Prayer for the people" could be the best example but it should show you we lost a beautiful talent way too soon.. The UGMMA is not the record label which is NIMBUS and stands for Union Of God's Musicians & Artists AscensionI would buy these albums from Honest jons in the United Kingdom around the 90s for about 10 pounds,now the prices are extreme what people are asking for the Nimbus West albums.

First off, this album is amazing spiritual jazz in the vein of Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane, Pharoah Sanders, and other Nimbus West artists. The music is laid back and accessible, never venturing far into the avant garde, but the playing is excellent all around.

Now, as for this remaster / reissue. It sounds really good, if not quite terrific. Nice punchy bass, good separation of instruments, and no muddiness that you sometimes hear in modern reissues that are done without care. My only complaint is that at times the flute and percussion can be a bit bright for my taste. The sticker on the front says ANALOGUE / Audiophile re-master. I'm not sure if that means AAA analog all the way through or not. My guess would be that there is digital somewhere in the mastering chain, but I also wouldn't be totally shocked if it was AAA. Though it comes on 180 gram vinyl, my copy has a very slight warp. Nothing that will affect play. The vinyl is quiet. I'd give this a 7/10 and definitely recommend it for people who don't want to dish out $300 for an OG copy. For less than 1/10th of the price this is a great way to enjoy the album.

First i purchased the PMG reissue and it sounded very flat. This reissue sounds rich, warm and wonderful ... I am very happy with it!

Did anyone listen to this particular repress? Is to worth looking for / buying? I am a CD-resissue owner, but if the vinyl repress plays well, I would gladly buy the LP! Thanks for any information!
