Notes

Handmade limited run reissue.
Pressed 33 1/3 RPM LP, limited to 25,000 numbered copies.
Housed in a full-colour, tip-on, Stoughton, gatefold jacket inside a textured slip-case w/ leatherette dowell featuring gold-foil stamp numbering.
Mastered directly from the original 3-Track master tapes by Bernie Grundman.
Pressed using Clarity Vinyl® on a manual Finebilt press.

* A minor audio complication with Kind of Blue has been addressed with this UHQR edition. The motor on the studio's 3-track master recorder was running slowly the day of the album's first session. This speed issue affected the album's first three tracks, "So What," "Freddie Freeloader" and "Blue in Green," making them a barely perceptible quarter-tone sharp.This issue was finally addressed with the Classic Records reissue in 1995. This UHQR was pressed from the same parts that Bernie Grundman cut directly from the original 3-track masters for Classic in '95.

    FINALLY a good color pressing of this record! Jk I’m echoing all the other reviews. This is a top-notch release. I agree with Mike from the “In-Groove” that the MoFi sounds more modern, and this pressing is just a different experience. Also the packaging of this compared to the MoFi is laughably above and beyond in quality.

      No denying that this sounds amazing and is the best I've ever heard. Unfortunately it has 1) defect in the vinyl that appears like a bubble visible from both sides that on side 1 causes a temporary click 2) loud repeating pops on the last track on side 1, which is a very quiet song that makes it even more obvious. I've wet cleaned it multiple times and played it 3 times but they all remain the same. I have other new records with occasional pops but given that this is supposed to be the pinnacle of record quality today, is quite disappointing. Returning it if I can.

            I've only just picked up a copy from a reputable dealer in the UK and discounted at that for a sealed copy fairly late in the numbering and no QC issues on mine. So lucky to get one from a store this late in the day so cost was extremely reasonable. What can I say, I only have a CD copy of this to compare to, but wow, this is a stunning press, just stunning. This is quite frankly a once in a lifetime copy, I feel extremely privileged to have one.

              Is this an AAA release? Wanting clarity after the mofi bs and if so, will put aside some money for the 45rpm version

                Considering the DSD transfer by MFSL, this will be the holy grail of this album in the years to come.

                  Amazing pressing! The vinyl is flat and devoid of any imperfections. As other have said, the sound is phenomenal! Super nice stereo imaging with lots of separation and detail. When I compare it to the MOFI pressing, this one sounds a little fuller and the vinyl is quieter. I must say I love the MOFI pressing as well and that one may offer a slight bit more detail and separation but this one defiantly has a more of a richer sound. I was lucky to get a clean copy (#22730). Maybe the later ones are pressed with better Quality control.

                      AS has top notch customer service. After 2 bad copies the gentleman pulled a fresh one and listened to it through before sending it. I now have a perfect copy. The first two had lots of noise on the 2 inner tracks, something isn’t right but it seems they have found the issue. Transcendent copy and I’m thrilled to have it. Here’s to hoping the 45 release is better.
