    This may have just dethroned the AP John Lee Hooker - Serve You Right To Suffer as the best sounding record I have in my collection. Holy smokes. If it gets better than this, I don’t even wanna know!! Spinning this with a cart that isn’t even fully broken in yet, and it’s just crazy!

      The piano really just shines and overall quality is perfection. Not much else can be said aside from it being a must-have in any record collector's collection.

        WOW. Jaw dropping. This sounds perfect. Separation of instruments, soundstage, pitch dark noise floor, everything sounds just like it's live in your listening space. The kick drum thump is just the right amount of bass. Glad I picked up these TBM reissues, some of the best sounding recordings I own even on a few first listens.

          My copy is utterly perfect, in every way, presence, exciting, clarity beyond measure.

            These three blind mice reissues are next level. They're one step level sound. Some of the most realistic instruments I've ever heard. They're like sitting front row at a jazz club. Kevin Gray smashed the pants off these! Buy now or cry later when they're HUNDREDS

              If my copy (purchased new in Jan 2022) is representative, whatever problems RTI was having with pressing this in mid-2021 has been resolved. I run a shibata stylus that is extremely unforgiving of surface noise, and my copy sounds superb.

                Man I get so unbelievably frustrated listening to this garbage pressing... Too bad they don't reside in Germany - if they did I'd file a complaint for consumer protection agency regulation. Labels like this should not be allowed to operate and sell defective items to people paying the full price.

                  Gave this record a spin again this morning. Perfect for getting angry and setting yourself a bad and annoyed start to the day with crackles, non-filler issues and other inacceptable issues like factory-induced scratches that one paid 75€ for. What an impudence to sell records like this. I wrote to Impex about the issue and never received an answer.

                    My copy sounds great. No surface noise and the mix is really well done. I’ve never had a problem with Impex. Every record I’ve purchased by them has come completely fine.

                      music is not great, bought on a whim, sounds elevator musicish
                      vinyl a bit noisy
                      mix is really piano heavy and with close mics
