This is - I think - part of the Rare Groove Series, B1 catalogue number, “Mastered by Capitol” drilled stamp accompanied by hand-etching “Wally” – Wally Trautgott, sound engineer. Runout includes logo stamp C R in two circles.

Wow such an amazing release!!! The fact that it was pressed on GZ makes me think that maybe it was produced from Hi-Res files and using DMM?? Not sure. But in any case the sound, the mastering (by Kevin Gray) are impecable. The presentation is so beautiful, with heavy tip-on jacket and a very cool book with notes about the recording. I started paying a lot of attention to these VMP releases. There are some incredible ones (e.g., McCoy Tyner all analog "Sahara" ).

I have a VAN GELDER stamped 70s copy that sounds great, but this one definitely beats it. Kevin Gray is the man.

The A side to this may be my favorite of any jazz record I own. The combination of hand drums and uptempo beat in fancy free that then transitions to the more downtempo I love the girl works very well, with each piece having considerable length to develop. After upgrading my audio equipment recently I revisited this album and my jaw was on the floor. It is hard to put into words just how natural and open this record sounds. It sounds cliche but at the end of side A I felt as though I had entered intermission during the performance.. how when you hear something great you feel compelled to applaud. Just incredible pressing and sound on this Donald Byrd album.

Amazing sounding pressing of a surprisingly good album. I was totally unaware of this man until receiving this record, and I immediately fell in love with it. I was playing this for a few friends the other day and I think he earned a few more fans.

My pressing sounds great, record is flat, and looks clean.
