5 stars for the music, but the pressing has 2 skips on B5. Going back.

Very pleased with this one with some exceptions. B5/B6 are clearly distorted on volume peaks in a very unpleasant way. A few pops here and there that don't bother me that much. Overall very nice depth/space, detail and noise/music ratio.

If you cannot get one of the analogue Blue Note editions, do not hesitate to buy this one. Although not as dependable as the WAX label, to which it can be compared, Dol might be more quiet than a Blue Note. Mine was without ticks or surface noise. And the sound? Well, these recordings never were HI FI, but there's true genius at work here, this album together with Vol 2 maybe the best Monk ever did, apart from his work with Coltrane, and you can hear it in a good enough way here.

Some surface noise, quality of the sound is mediocre. Bad instrument separation and definition.

I went in the store looking for Volume One. They didn't have it. They did have Volume Two. So I went ahead and bought Volume Two. Came home, popped it on and to my surprise 'Round Midnight started playing. Took a look, sure enough the labels were Volume One. Matrix brought me here. My guardian angel's got my back. . . . oh by the way, this is some of the greatest Monk music ever recorded and the pressing sounds fantastic to me.

My kudos to Blue Note records (albeit very late) for stock issuing of plastic lined paper inner sleeves on this issue.
The Plastic Protector Inner Sleeves themselves are of a higher quality than many of the good ones I've purchased and liked over the years. Just the act of opening the cover for the first time and running into this pleasant surprise inspires the user to be more careful with the vinyl. I know that was my immediate reaction. It has a whole different effect than when you or I, the consumer, adds the plastic liner.
What a refreshing act from a record company actually thinking of the consumer and the long term value of their most important product.
For every one of these I see, there are a hundred stupid gimmick custom inner sleeve releases based on fancy looks, not the job the inner sleeve is supposed to be doing.
I've lost hundreds of dollars in value on my collection items simply because LPs get scratched by dumb or cheapo inner sleeves.
Record companies don't seem to care. Don't seem to know or want to know. So I must thank Blue Note and mention this delightful add on to collectors

Like the other reviewer said - great music. I don't think that reviewer had a bum pressing though, more likely that people with quiet pressings just got lucky. This pressing is awful, consistent with the shoddy pressing quality at United. Tons of background noise all over.
