The Geffen reissue is 180 gram vinyl, flat and quiet for an overall great pressing. There are no updated liner notes to identify who remastered the recording. The recording presents a spacious soundstage with very good frequency response and detail. No tape hiss is present. The music is engaging and pulls you into an experience that takes you back to 1968 when it was recorded 50 years ago. Given the high prices to get an original copy I'd recommend this reissue.

Just listened to this and I can confirm that it sounds a hell of a lot better than the 2006 Scorpio pressing. Never heard an original, so I can neither comment nor compare. Comes in a thick/sturdy tip-on style sleeve. Nice touch!

Any input on sound quality? Is this one as bad as the Rubaiyat 2006 reissue?

Along with Alice Coltrane, Ashby extended the popularization of jazz harp past a novelty, showing how the instrument can be utilized seamlessly as much a be-bop instrument as the saxophone. Her albums were of the jazz genre, but often moved into R&B, world and other musical genres.

Absolutely soothing, chill bossa jazz. Harp works in Jazz too.
