My copy was also off-center as well and as a result sounds a bit wobbly At times. I e never seen my tone arm move back and forth so much. General sound quality is not very impressive for a reissue claiming it was overseen by Sardaby himself. Contacted the label/World Seven but did not hear back. Seems they are new to this Jazz reissue game and have a lot to learn. Overall a very disappointing reissue for this long awaited reissue of this highly sought-after classic Album.

Side B of the copy I just received from ImportCDs / Amazon is off-center. Very noticeable on the last track, "Sambando Nas Ondas." I'll be returning it. Otherwise, great-sounding record; wish I knew if the repress is digitally sourced. [EDIT: reading the other comments leads me to think this is a widespread issue; maybe common to all pressings?]

Great record, sounds verry good but (as so often) download code is invalid and no answer from the label.

Pressing wise it's very nice. The Soundstage was very intimate at times. I do concur with maybe two wavy tone moments during some longer notes but it didn't bother me too much upon the first two complete listens.
Simple cover and generic sleeve along with the download code make this a solid yet underwhelming package. But to be honest you'll soon forget this once you hear the music...

How is the pressing quality of this reissue please? Source of the pressing, guessing that digital?
