I couldn’t be more pleased with this release. I’ve owned several reissue of Kind of Blue and this is easily the best sounding.

Kevin Gray’s work is clearly evident here. This is a fantastic pressing.

This pressing sounds fantastic to me. I’ve heard maybe a half dozen different releases of this on vinyl and several on CD. This one is in the top three or four for sure.

This is by far the best sounding mono pressing I have listened to. Pick one up before the price shoots up!
Only bettered by the MoFi stereo pressing.

Finally I have a copy, purchased used, but it has very few noise issues still.
I have a feeling that peoples complaints mostly stem from the MPO pressings of later years as that plant can be a bit hit or miss. Mine only has RTI runouts and should therefore be one of the early 2010s pressings Im guessing. Seek this out if you worry about noise.
As of yet I have not compared to my Stereo 6 Eye or MFSL 45 but will likely do so in the future.
Until then my first impression is that it sounds pretty much dead on, as expected of Kevin Gray.

Some people are trying to sell these for absurdly high prices here and on the bay. They claim this is "out of print" or other nonsense. This is STILL being offered by Music Direct and is awaiting another repress. There is NO REASON to pay a penny over the $59.99 retail price. Don't get suckered.

Quite good pressing. A little bit of background noise here and there but it doesn't really affect the listening experience. I think I picked it up for about £5 so can't complain!

I own 4 copies of this album including a mono original. This pressing sounds amazing and knocks the socks off the others, even the original, strangely enough.

Such a classic album needs to be in your collection in top quality vinyl, and this classic records version sounds fantastic.

Wonderful pressing, almost beyond compare. Crisp and clear sounding record.
