    I’ve always thought that my hi fi is too old and i was on the verge of changing it… but after hearing this vinyl I realized that it’s the the rest of my vinyls that needs to be thrown away…..

      Really incredible pressing. Sounds like the band is right in front of you.

        [Reviewing sealed copy #18464]
        I always wash new records before playing. But just to test the quality of the Acoustic Sounds product being delivered, I put this on the turntable without wet cleaning, just dry carbon brush. As such, this copy was fairly crackly throughout. After 2.5 washings, it's mostly silent and I'm happy. Just being real.

        I know the material like the back of my hand, having listened to it my entire life. The bass sounds a little round and boosted versus other pressings I own. Otherwise, the details are beautiful and the horns and drums sound natural. Piano has some problems, but that's in the RVG capture. Good dynamics overall. I'm glad I selected the 33 RPM, because I can't justify flipping a record every 1-2 songs.

        The music is absolutely next level, so it's important to spend as little time as possible thinking about your pressing/copy, and wrap your brain around this monumental session.

        5 stars.

          After a good cleaning mine is nice and quiet! I love this disc, it sounds wonderful and life like. I wanted this over the 45 because of how this album flows from song to song and I am very happy with this disc.

            Ultra High Quality Recording? NO! Ultra High Price and Ultra Hype Marketing!

              Just purchased and received my copy from acoustic sounds. This record sounds incredible, I had high expectations and it exceeded them. It’s really quite unbelievable actually.
              There’s more pops and clicks than I’m used to mostly quiet annd not too distracting, and side 2 has two very very loud clicks and a blemish on the record where it happens, would you ask for a replacement or just live with it?

                Looks like it available for ordering from today.
                Interesting, is this new repress without problems or they simply sell returned items ;-)

                  I’m surprised by these reviews. I must have gotten lucky? This is the best sounding record I’ve ever heard. There are zero flaws. Virtually no surface noise, no sibilance, no pressing errors. All my life, when ever anyone would say to me “this setup or this recording sounds like I’m actually in the room” I’ve been like “yeah, sure, uh huh…” I’ve never heard anything that led me to believe that was possible. This was the first recording where I actually did feel like it kind of got close to that experience. I’ve never heard anything like it. All other recordings kind of sound dead in comparison now.

                  The biggest things that led me to feel this way is how much you hear the room, and how much separation there is for each instrument.

                  Really sucks for the people who got a bad copy. I’ve been blown away. Best record I own hands down.

                    My copy is 17603. I have none of the issues that many describes. I have only re-presses to compare to, anyway, this one sound phenomenal out of my Proac; I can only imagine how an OG press may sounds, if it's true that the OG blown it away . Can someone confirm the sound compared with a first o second press? Thank you
                    PS: I had never issues with AP or AS releases, I'm very surprised how many complaining about quality...

                      If you have even a G+ first pressing you will know that although ths UHQR sounds clinical and perfect (at least my copy plays perfectly) the original completely knocks this thing dead. Dynamics and horns and vastly different, you get sucked in from the first trumpet blas, which is not the case with the UHQR. All the presence and life of the original is lost, even though yes, you can hear everything perfectly, no doubt, but if you have the first press, you know where the money is better invested. There is no sub for being closest to the master tapes and the artists overseeing the production. Yea i know, it's impossible to get pefect playing 1959 original for this money the UHQR costs, but well, even though i have a very revealing system, i still would rather have some crackle and hear the spirit then have this clinical approach of the UHQR. still nice to blast super loud, no doubt about that. vinyl is silent. buy it if you can't or don't want to afford a first press.
