      As everyone said here, this copy have amazing pressing, sounds really warm and dynamic. Really really good, and still affordable too.

        This Pathé Marconi BN reissue is cut pretty loud and sounds warm and dynamic, If you are struggling to get an early pressing this could be the right one for you, without breaking the bank!

          I received my copy, I opened it, and to my surprise inside was "something else" ......by Cannonball Adderley. I was just about to return it but decided to play it first. It turned out that the recording was the right one (speak no evil) only the sticker on the vinyl were the wrong ones. I kept it. Maybe one day it will cost more. Did anyone else had the same issue with this pressing?

            Can confirm, it's really good. Mine's some slight surface noise in quieter parts but apart from that it's a very nice pressing. Wanted to sell it and buy myself the new Kevin Grey reissue, but I just put it on aand... yeah, it's not going anywhere. I really like how the higher part of the low end is so tightly compressed on some of these 75ths - makes the drums sound so crunchy and sweet - more tube'y than the super-wide spacey BN drums of Kevin Grey.

              Of course, a legendary Shorter album. Fine remastering and cut except partially too much dominance in right channel. Unfortunately, even after two exchanges, the Optimal pressing this time falls short in quality. Distortions and pops in A2&3. Record flatness leaves something to be desired even for the lower price level. Looses 1 star in Sound and 1 for pressing quality. A solid 3 for me. Music of course is a 5er.

                I believe this is mono, although it is printed has stereo on the cover. So what.
                Is it a good listen and pressing? Yes, that’s why I post while listening to this recording. I just wanted to share the good listening experience. No others to compare to the record, but no FOMO, buyer’s remorse, or less money for the invitation to listen.

                  My copy of this particular reissue sounds better on mono chanel. On cover says stereo but..

                    Picked up the repress on sale for $23. Sounds absolutely amazing and the price is as good as I can ask from BN. KG cuts another beautiful record.

                      Had avoided this for ages because of early reports of pressing defects but it looks like the repress had less issues so finally took the plunge. My copy is pristine and the record sounds fantastic overall. Most of the recent BNCs I’ve bought have been glorious sounding.

                        For me, the best Blue Note has ever released! Be sure to try this King pressing! Sounds fantastic
