Great way to toast the kid with the BN80. Hubb’s horn hums. Sound is fresh as spring morning.

Beautiful, quiet pressing. Quintessential Van Gelder - Hubbard sounds amazing. Has to be the best pressing of this record.

Fantastic! Clean, flat and flawless pressing. Dynamic with a nice sound stage. It has a full, warm and expansive sound. I got mine from Amazon. This one was done right!

Anyone has this and the BN80 who can comment on the difference? Is it worth paying the extra money for this master, pressing and the tip on jacket?

I agree, this is a brilliant release. Kevin Gray has done an excellent job with the master tapes on this and pushed and articulated sounds masterfully. The pressing is as I expected, literally perfect! It's why I get these because they are pressed by Optimal Media GmbH, I have utmost confidence in what they do, I know I'll get a brilliant pressing. Proven with these......

To me one of the best three Freddie albums. And it was a debut! Many strong experiences through the listening of this album. Freddie plays like old matador and Tina supported him enough. Strong bass of Sam Jones as well as Jarvis on drums. Tyner´s talent just "opened sesame". Magnificent. Rainbo pressing is decent, Scorpio reissues are average or poor. Sound missing detail and depth. Vinyl was cut louder but without distortion. But all instrument in one unnatural dynamic FQ - bass+/treble+. The most scary is Hub´s Nub with reversed L+R channels! Buy 80th anniversary.

Compared this one tonight with my 1999 Classic Records stereo release and this one has more air around the horns and the symbols too are better articulated. The differences are not huge but easily heard. the pressing was dead quiet and perfectly flat.

Another of the Kevin Gray mastered 80th anniversary Blue Notes and this one really is killer. Unlike the Herbie Hancock Takin' Off 80th edition where you could hear a few tape imperfections this one seems to have fared better. My vinyl is almost 100 per cent silent. The sound of the horns is particularly fulsome and engaging in their stereo setting although McCoy Tyner's piano still sounds slightly boxed-in in Rudy's trademark fashion. As for the set, it's an absolute classic. With originals going at silly prices this is an essential buy for Blue Note vinyl fans.

This record sounds really nice. It's a tad muddy and I felt like I could hear compression but I would buy re's a lot more if they sounded like this, ;) I also don't have an original to check it against but the vinyl is great. Comes with a paper and plastic inner

Since the insert is made of thicker cardstock with a thin gloss on one side, the insert and back card both read "Printed in Canada", and the CD does not read "Made in the USA"--all of which seem different than the other CDP Blue Note CDs I own--I'm wondering if this particular issue was actually released in Canada...?
