    No digital download card included in my 2022 repress.Vinyl is flat and reasonably quiet. Label great. Hole centered. Outer cover is solid.

      I found a copy with the productcode: 0602567364320
      It also says that it's released in 29/03/2018.

      Can i trust on it that this is the good quality version?

        Correction regarding Harper: Billy Harper Quintet - Destiny Is Yours
        • Pangea1975's avatar
          Music Direct repress back in stock for $22.99. Mine just arrived. Ordered on 11/24/22. If the pressing is decent this will be a good alternative to the ridiculous prices some are asking (which also serve to make streaming even more practical). Probably cannot open this 2fer until Christmas Day (present from my wife who tolerates but does not understand the addiction). She also sprung for Billy Harper's Yours Is The Destiny. Amazon says they will have some 12/2/2022.

            This is available right now on Merchbar for $24.49. It's on backorder, but mine came in less than a month this fall. The run-out wax matches what is listed here. Side C of my copy has some little manufacturing defects (like little dimples) but they don't affect play. Not a fantastic pressing, but sounds good enough for me. Very happy to have this on vinyl.

              Agree with comments here that pressing is bad. Great music no doubt. Mine copy is also warped too.

                This might be the April 2021 repress mentioned below. I'm going to order a copy and I will report back.

                  Any word of a repress? Seems to have been out of print for a while now.
                  • JohnBlutarski's avatar
                    Just wondering, do the spines of modern Impulse records still have the classic orange + black Coloured as the ones from the past?
                    • iang1978's avatar
                      Yes, not a good pressing. C1 - my favourite track - skips a lot on mine, straight out of a sealed copu, yet there isn't a blemish to be seen. Some achievement with barely 14 minutes to the side.
