    My copy of Kind of Blue plays well, no discernible surface noise (what some call "clicks and pops"). Sound stage is deep and wide and separation is notable, with depth (Coltrane sounds big as life and standing right in front of my B&W Nautilus 803s). All good.

      Avoid! Every single Legacy I own has clicks and pops right out of the sleeve and vacuumed before being played. Not even after cleaning them in my ultrasonic player. Miles Davis Kind of Blue is the worse, Pink Floyd Wish You Were Here, Elvis' Golden Records, The Essential Johnny Cash... all are flawed. I have read reviews on releases by this label from others having the same issues. Avoid!

        Quite fond of this label, have several and all are good. Nontheless, do your homework 1st, don't assume anything on face value.

          Good and quiet pressings. My only complain is the vinyl art which looks really blurred.
