    Clean and clear, dead flat vinyl! Some of the best channel separation I’ve heard, amazingly great, not to mention the outstanding line up of brilliant musicians. This is a gem of an album, lineup and pressing. It’s limited, so grab it while you can.

      Fantastic pressing and has that "in the room" sound. Unfamiliar with this album as a whole, but was able to get it for quite a deal and took a chance on it. The separation of the instruments is exquisite with clarity and space. You can hear the personality and personas of all the different musicians clearly.

      Enjoyable, even if the music is new to you.

        Rare gem. Recording is fantastic. Pressing is dead silent. A treat to listen to.

          The tunes on here really shine on this press compared to my apple music digital source. Great packaging too, per usual from A.S.S. (lol)

            This LP is a about as perfect as it can get, no back ground noise, flat and the sound is lush.

              I am very happy with this record. Very good sound, clean, very thick glossy cover. Beautiful artwork and of course great music. I also own the DOL version and that is then in comparison junk.
              Recommendable !

                Quiet pressing, clarity and definition in the instruments, organic sound that does not tire. Gorgeously glossy sleeve. Quality well above its price. Can’t go wrong with this one!

                    Always loved the opening track, but with this vinyl edition, I have come to appreciate the other tracks more than ever. This is what good mastering and quality vinyl can do.

                      Opening track always gives me a chub. I knew track from cinema and bought this not knowing that. Then I began clapping in glee. And never ceased.
