Sounds fine on my system. No surface noise at all. Nice and flat. Decent dynamics. Great material.

Awful pressing. Just another colored vinyl abomination for the wannabes.

Beautiful album. Brilliant and really enjoyable. Perfect example of Jazz-Funk style. Theo Parrish sampled "Lanzana's Priestress" for his "Early Byrd" (nomen omen) masterpiece.

Blue Note has produced a real gem here... have to agree with the former reviewer, great pressing and lovely bright green translucent vinyl. Some of the other colored options dont sound anywhere nearly this good. Only 2000 made as well.

This is one album where the cover advertises exactly what you're in for. Semi-Frantic summertime sugary sex funk !! No other Donald Byrd album sounds quite like this one. Alchemy of audio brings together some of the great session guys and gals to record a theme to reflect the hot hot heat and hard walk of the 'street lady' aka Prostitute. It's a densely layered sound on some tracks and the groove is non stop. The title track was used very effectively in the early 90's Blue Note compilation "Blue Break Beats" Blue Break Beats Volume Two to introduce a new generation to that era. The recording is also very juicy, not too slick, still sounds raw and banging, before the heavy compression and new mixing desks started to sneak into Funk records, so you get hard edges along with soft.

Donald Byrd is a stunning trumpeter and the band match his prowess on this record. The writing is also eaquisite. It is a soulful, funked up jazz and in places some of the best that I have listened to. I played this to friends at house parties who have been equally blown away. But also had friends deeply unimpressed by it.
These friends are wrong, this is an astounding sounding record really cool and funky. Great stuff.

Imagine if John Shaft and SuperFly took over the Blue Note Jazz Club. The result would be Donald Byrd's 'Street Lady'. Donald and producer Larry Mizell were obviously taking (Blue)notes from Isaac Hayes and Curtis Mayfield when conceiving this album; its shows all through the recording. They enlisted the now-legendary studio musicians Chuck Rainey(bass guitar) and Harvey Mason(drums) to lay down the pocket and boy, do they ever. From the driving groove of 'Lansana's Priestess' to the smoldering funk of 'Witch Hunt', the vibe(and vibraphone) is there. A masterfully arranged funktaperstry that give's Byrd's trumpet and Roger Glenn's flute plenty of freedom to flow over, under, and through. No small wonder that many Acid Jazz musicians have used this record as a framework/archetype for their own music. If you're into lounging or just like that 70s Soul sound, I highly recommend this recording.

This is one Donald Byrd's best albums to date. The style of music which he has combined is the utmost sound ever. He has a great group of Producers, and a great band to back him up. I recommend this album to anyone. Listen to songs like: Miss Kane, and Witch Hunt.
The art work is fantastic, that is why it is called "Street Lady.
Get this album, and add it to your collection.
