For those who can't (or won't) shell out the big bucks for an audiophile pressing, this copy will do you just fine. It's super clean 180g vinyl pressed at RTI (the same facility that pressed the MoFi version). The wax is dead quiet and the music simply jumps out of your speakers. A true testament to how well-recorded Kind of Blue was that a non-audiophile release pressed 51 years later can sound this freaking good.

As a jazz musician, I know this recording like the back of my hand. Although I cannot afford an audiophile pressing, I was quite surprised at how good this one sounds. Vinyl is completely silent, and the horns are bold and out front as they should be. Sizzle on high hat is dialed in just right. Good stereo field. Highly recommended.

Is this one of these annoying releases where you have to essentially buy it used to make sure you get the right version? I bought what I thought would be this version off Ebay, but have ended up with the MPO version not mastered by Kevin Grey 🙄

Probably the best sounding record I own, in all honesty. Also the flattest record I own. Also the heaviest. Just checks all the boxes.

My copy of Kind of Blue plays well, no discernible surface noise (what some call "clicks and pops"). Sound stage is deep and wide and separation is notable, with depth (Coltrane sounds big as life and standing right in front of my B&W Nautilus 803s). All good.

So just picked this up at my local Walmart. Side one sounds great. Side two has several spots on both songs where it almost sounds like interference. Not pops or clicks it is almost a buzzing sound. Have tried it on both my turntables with the same issue. I also noticed that the edge of the record is kind of rough and jagged. Not sure if I just got a bum pressing. Music is great and other than the issues it sounds really good.

I have this pressing and the mofi 2x45rpm, both pressed at RTI. This one is really good for the price, heavy wax with a clear soundstage. RTI is pretty consistent on their pressings, I have several other HQ-180 releases and all sound fantastic. I spin this regularly and save the mofi one for active listening.

Finally I have a copy, purchased used, but it has very few noise issues still.
I have a feeling that peoples complaints mostly stem from the MPO pressings of later years as that plant can be a bit hit or miss. Mine only has RTI runouts and should therefore be one of the early 2010s pressings Im guessing. Seek this out if you worry about noise.
As of yet I have not compared to my Stereo 6 Eye or MFSL 45 but will likely do so in the future.
Until then my first impression is that it sounds pretty much dead on, as expected of Kevin Gray.

Can anyone tell me why there are different running times in some songs depending on the edition?

Disapointed-Bought this used and it looked like it had been played once-now I know why. Unlistenable garbage!
