    Must have a bad copy. Side 2 has distortion on the last 3 songs. The other 2 sides sound fantastic.

      Just wanted to second that this record sounds absolutely incredible!

        As far as I know, this is the first time this collection has been issued on vinyl. And boy, did Nonesuch get it right! Wonderfully detailed mix that plays dead quiet and centered correctly. The records also come in audiophile inner sleeves which is nice. The unplayable Side 4 is etched beautifully with an Allen Toussaint quote. The best sounding RSD release I picked up in 2017. Highly recommended.
