Great sounding LP. As is typical for the label very low surface noise and great instrument separation. The intro to track 1 is a standout which really benefits from this pressing.

There is some slight distortion on side 2 (especially the horns). I would like the drums and cymbals to be brought deforested a bit more but those are some minor quibbles.

Really great packaging too. Love the gatefold.

Although my bar coding matches up I get completely different matrixes on my disc (22984 1A and 1B). Anyone else have this?

Large dynamics and well pressed release, with detail and care in the gatefold sleeve as well. Highly recommended!

Super silent floor with great range and dynamic sound. Crunchy and crisp at the same time and allows the songs to naturally build without sounding engineered. Great overall product

A solid reissue. Artwork is nice and pressing quality is good. Record is clean, flat, silent and properly centered. Probably digitally sourced since there's absolutely no information about mastering. Be that as may, sound quality is still very good.

In comparison to the other review... this album kicks arse. The epic "Sleeping Giant" goes from frenzied percussion, through hard-out jazz rock, experimental free-time passages, damn fine jazz funk in 3/4, and the ending - fantastic strange, eerie noises from either Eddie Henderson, Julian Priester and Bennie Maupin. Then... 'Quasar' takes us into even more exploratory stuff, and is my favourite on the album... collapses into more experimental terrain. Patrick Gleeson's synths are all over the map on this one, which makes it so much better. This tune is actually quite carefully arranged - gets more and more intricate with each listen, but never gets old. And, the bluesy "Water Torture", rounds off the album.... this has some rich, kick arse Mellotron and synth parts (the best mellotrons weren't always in prog rock!), and more free-time avant-jazz-fusion madness. One of the best examples of space-age jazz funk to exist. check out the more free-floating "Mwandishi" album, and the even more experimental "Sextant" for more goodness.
And, check this out... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3PZrr2Wuxcw&t=1015s
