The mastering/sonics are fine on this pressing, but both discs are warped on my copy, and Side 4 is BADLY off-center.
Another thing I noticed is that the records look like they were pressed at different plants, or at least utlized totally different molds for pressing the actual discs...Very strange!

Can someone compare this to the original or '77 Japanese pressing or the more recent Speakers Corner reissue? This Get On Down pressing sounds muddy to my ears, but being a live recording perhaps it is just true to the source.

Anyone else getting the "heartbeat" effect on both discs? Occasional distortion on disc 1 but all over the place during "Butterfly." Guess I'll have to replace.

Disappointing because the music sounds dope.

This is my favorite album of all time and it's been absolutely wonderful finally owning it on vinyl. Great pressing.

"First vinyl reissue since its Japan only 1975 release"

Except, of course, for the 1977 Japanese reissue, the 1981 Japanese reissue, and the 2015 German reissue. Don't believe the hype.

Stellar performance. Well documented. Beautiful gatefold. If you are into Herbie or live jazz (or both) this is pretty much an excellent pick up.

A couple of minor pressing defects on mine, and those unforgivable scratchy plain paper inner sleeves, but on the whole I'm glad I picked this one up. Solid performance and an intruiging snapshot of Herbie at that time.
