      After thorough cleaning, this version sounds as good as any of the 4 or 5 different editions I've had. A steal.

        Having compared to my Speakers Corner I find this Acoustic Sounds version to hold up extremely well.
        The main difference for me when comparing Part III is how the SC is more balanced between the Horn and Drums while the AS is more fierce in Coltranes Sax compared to the rest of the instruments.
        This new RKS cut is surely also more like an original RVG cut in that sense. If thats good or bad in your book is completely preference based. But I believe Im also hearing a bit more lushness in the drums for Ryans cut, perhaps from a slightly lower EQ, even though they are less present when the levels are adjusted well against the SC.
        Kevins cut as a result seems a bit drier and doesnt go quite as deep in the bass solo. But these are small differences that need to be looked at more closely, it could just be down to small level differences. And Id like to wait for my Nagaoka cart to do just that.
        Something that doesnt need much investigation is the sleeve quality. The 2020 AS release is clearly on thicker heavy duty tip on cardboard while the older SC is almost flimsy in comparison. The SC does have the correctly cropped image however.
        If I had to choose one right now the AS release would be the keeper, but with further examination that might change. They are both very much worthy releases of the album in any case but since the SC is now rare and expensive this new reissue is a no brainer.

        Update:
        What I neglected to mention because of my too brief overview is how these versions masterings are not applied across the board. Their qualities vary a bit which makes it hard to describe how they compare in a general sense.
        Taking panning as an example, many complain about the AS33s very left and right imaging, which is true to some degree. You may be surprised to hear the SC KPG cut is even more divided into the 2 channels, especially on the right where Kevin puts the drums pretty exclusively boxed in a corner. Yes Ryan does pan Coltrane very left, even more than Kevin at times, but in general he also meshes the sounds more into both channels as well. This combined with a slightly more filled in mid and bottom end creates a better sense of the room in the recording.
        On top of Kevin locking the drums to one speaker we have another big issue for the SC and any recent version using the supposed original US tape as a source which is the drop outs. Im still scratching my head over missing this but there are a ton of drop outs on B1 Pursuance which is a giant blow to all Elvin Jones fans. This is likely the issue which makes the tape unusable to many ears and why the UK copy tape was necessary.
        In the end Im no longer on the fence about these two version after closer examination and I give the AS33 and UHQR45 the crown.

          I have both this mono and a 1965 stereo, and while the mono is a fold down, for whatever reason even if I run the stereo LP through my system so it plays in mono, the actual mono LP just still sounds better—just more realistic, a seemingly clearer sound stage, and the air between my speakers and me just seems more open and vibrant. Is it a mind trick? Dunno! It’s just what I hear. Love this pressing the best.

            I enjoy this (rare?) 1976 stereo pressing --has a nice 'rounded' sound to it, the hard stereo panning isn't as harsh. I listen to this over my modern Acoustic Sounds pressing.

              This Japanese pressing does not disappoint. Dead quiet vinyl, so much detail compared to my US pressing. I can’t believe this hasn’t been reviewed yet. You know you've raised your daughter right when she goes to Tokyo and then brings you back this album, without me even asking.

                  Fantastic pressing. ALS sounds very good in mono, too. The stereo has Coltrane hard panned to left which leaves me feeling a bit fatigued at points. The mono centers Coltrane front and center without the hard pan distraction. The other players aren't as pushed back feeling/sounding as in stereo. I have many copies of this album, including the UHQR 45rpm. I believe this album is best listened to at 33 1/3rpm and in mono. Just an opinion. If you can get a Van Gelder fold down at a decent price, do it.

                    Sound is wow, like really wow “what are those new instruments I am hearing” type of wow. BUT, the outer case is huge. It is not neccessary to have such a huge box.

                      I love the glossy tip on style of this jacket more than words can describe. Pressing and quality are top notch.

                        Picked mine up at Walmart on the discount rack for 15$ - sounds great no surface noise and no warps. I'm Happy.
