Nice pressing. Quiet and really nice sounding when not playing on Crosley. Glad I ignored the review and picked this up.

Really well done pressing of this record by VMP. Billie's voice is dynamic and so are her various bands. Get a copy before they go up in price.

It is a pity to see this fantastic album, in thus huge pressing, sold for few dollars. Better for the music lovers, that have the chance to buy this hidden gem for few

Man, this thing sounds great until the last track of side A, which has some mild pops, but worse is the vocal distortion. Every other part of the record is pristine and side B sounds especially good.

Great pressing, rich in sound. Can't believe that this was recorded almost 70 years ago. This pressing makes it sound like it was yesterday.
Great quality packing and excellent cover reconstruction. This album never looked and sounded better than this pressing!

I got two duds. The first was noisy throughout on both Sides A and B, and was particularly noticeable during the quiet parts of Strange Fruit. Second copy was better on Side A, but on Side B there was a loud series of pops at the end of Good Morning Heartache. Cleaning both copies numerous times didn't resolve the issue and VMP wouldn't send a third copy, only offering store credit instead. Disappointing, to say the least.

Im quite pleased with this release from VMP. Pressing from GZ is no problem for me, sound is rich and clean, vocals sounds great. Nice job!

Definitely one of the better GZ pressings I've received in the last 6 months. For the most part, quiet vinyl and the disc is flat. The last four tracks (the LA sessions) sound much better than the rest of the album (NY sessions). Love the tip on jacket as always, too.

My copy is pressed on very noisy vinyl, thankfully I own the Sweet Vinyl Sugarcube SC-2 which kills the noise and lets the music come through unaffected. With mastering and plating from top notch companies it's a shame that GZ didn't get it right this time on their end. I'm not a GZ basher either, plenty of perfect records in my collection were pressed there. I'll give it a Spin Clean bath, perhaps that will help. The music sounds quite good, I listened on my dedicated mono table with an Ortofon 2m Mono cartridge.
