    My copy is flawless; flat, clean, deadsilent after one round on the Okki Nokki and no distortion. Sounds great! Came with polylined inner… (Clearaudio Concept with MC - Clearaudio phono pre - NAD - Bowers & Wilkins 603 S2’s)

      I think of this album as the gateway drug for people who aren't sure about jazz or hard bop. This music got me started on a wonderful path of discovery! I love returning to it now that it's been about 15 years since I first heard these songs...never gets old.

        While I am a jazz novice with a limited collection and knowledge, this is probably my favorite album (next to Brown/Roach). I too found my initial copy was pretty flawed, replacement is drama. It is a gorgeous pressing.

          This has to be one of the worst blue note pressings I ever owned, thank you Keven Gary but no thanks. My copy right out of the gate had distortion through out playback, it was cleaned a few times. It also has a digital distortion that pops up a few times on side one, super annoying. I bought my copy at a brick and mortar store. They don’t like getting returns, now I’m stuck with this $28 garbage. Where’s my old cd?

            Saw this record on a list five or six years ago when I was trying to branch out from my only jazz record at the time - KOB. Got a crappy pressing first and replaced it when this KPG cut came out. I’ve basically disliked this album since the beginning and just couldn’t figure out the rage. Still can’t totally… it’s nowhere near in the same class as KOB, ALS or SHAPE OF JAZZ, in my totally crude, unqualified jazz-novice opinion. But it is growing on me to the point where I keep it in regular rotation and won’t sell it. I will say, the RVG recording, KPG mastering/cut and Optimal pressing are as good as anything I’ve ever heard. Totally clear, with wonderful separation and presence. I’m listening to “Love For Sale” right now and realize I may be really starting to enjoy this record. If you already like it, it 100% belongs in your collection, unless you need to surpass it with MoFi’s UD1S (which I have never heard).

            Update: I dislike this album so much, that I just got a sealed copy of AP’s 2xLP 45 rpm of it. I guess it’s REALLY grown on me. Funny how that happens. Really nothing to complain about with my CLASSICS KPG pressing; just heard the rage about the AP 33 and 45 cuts by BG. Seems it truly was a limited pressing.

              Not bad for the price at all. Typical hard panned stereo mastering from original mono recording. Minor surface noise, clicks and pops. Some distortion on B3 on my copy. Great balance and presence of trumpet and sax. Awesome album, a must have for any late 50s / early 60s jazz fan. Pressing is not bad for the price, but I'm curious to hear a higher quality mono pressing of this album... 4.4 / 5

                Mine was perfect. I didnt hear a single tick, my copy is exceptionally quiet. The sound is great, too. And I got it for 14 Euros only. Get it, its great!

                  Do you also have distortions with A2?
                  I would like to know if it's the pressing or if I need to realign my pickup again.

                  You also have to say that this LP was cut pretty hot.

                    Perfect music and perfect sound. I also own the analogue production SACD and both are mindblowing.

                      Great album. Pressing quality is whole another story. 1st copy - heavy distortion on B2 and B3. 2nd copy - same problem , but on A1, A2. Disappointing.
