I have the same issue as Globe199. Big edge warp and lots of popping and crackles. I am most disappointed in Blue Notes obvious lack of quality control with this pressing. I have other Blue Note releases that are excellent. Pass this one by.

The Blue Note 75 series has a spotty track record. My first copy of Empyrean Isles from Amazon had a big edge warp, so I returned it and got a fine copy in exchange. The sound is good; there's no discernible noise or no-fill, even on quieter parts like the bass solo in The Egg.

I think it's as important to submit reviews for good products as it is for bad products. I can recommend this one.
