I saw Michael Fremer's review of this and then saw the people who guest on the record, plus the low prices, and bought it immediately (along with The Bright Mississippi). I am beyond pleased with everything about the record. Gorgeous and imaginative interpretations, excellent recording, and Bob Ludwig mastered. Very nice liner notes as well. The records are very high quality - very quiet background and very few if any imperfections. I would venture to say that a pressing of this caliber and attention to detail would typically sell for $40, not $20.
