C1 is pressed really bad. "Sure Thing" has noise all over the track. The rest of this record is quite good.

Just bought the 2012 pressing, and same here but only "Sure Thing" is not listenable :( all the rest is perfect though...

this pressing has had such bad rap I need to say that the copy I bought recently off amazon is outstanding (altho it was listed as a blue note). playing side by side against the CD, the CD sounds slow and flabby and the vinyl crisp with no noise, crackle or distortion. maybe parlophone sorted it out or maybe I'm very lucky!

Don't buy this press, seems that all the copies are terrible like everyone said. Too bad.

Bought a copy from Amazon that was listed as a Blue Note release. Got the Parlophone release instead. Like the other comments suggest, a really bad pressing. Overall sound quality is surprisingly bad, especially A1 - Rose Rouge and C1 - Sure Thing. I don't know what it is with all those so-called remastered versions on 180 gram (or more), but every time I purchase one there's at least one track that's completely unplayable. This one is a new low for me. Might as well stick with the original releases all together.

Thought I was buying the Blue Note version of this lp as that was the way it was listed but just received a copy of the Parlophone version of this lp. Can confirm track C1 is not playable. Stay away!
