Is this a bootleg or a legitimate Strata East reissue?

Compared to my original pressing, I feel like this has a bit of bass boost, but still very nice sounding.

Excellent reissue of essential killer modal jazz album by Clifford Jordan and his quartet on Strata East !

I dont want to be that guy but when compared to for example jazz records that Kevin Gray cut, this sounds like a needledrop with clicks and pops digitally removed - the saxophone has at times this odd distortion that sounds like a sibilant distortion your needle/cartridge makes when playing back a record but this time its not your needle making that noise but someone elses. This record doesnt have that AAA record feel at all. If this record would be AAA it would state that on the hype sticker - currently it says "Adiophile remastering". Or it all could be just the recording quality - not all engineers were Rudy Van Gelder...

Probably one my favourite strata east records. Holds my attention every single bar. Just amazing and this reissue is highly recommendable. Pure pleasure!

This superfly re-issue blows the original pressing away! Pure Pleasure has indeed released it and it is good too.

Wow. This pressing sounds fantastic. Dead silent background and amazing soundstage really allow the music to stand out.
