    I have plenty of WaxTime vinyl and for the price, these are hard to beat. The vinyl is dead flat, clean, and sounds great! Sure, it's not a MoFI or AP level of dynamics, but for $15-$20 list price, it's truly worth it. And unlike many major labels, WaxTime has always provided a poly sleeve and I've never really had any issues with the condition of the vinyl when it arrives.

    For what this is—a great sounding pressing with good dynamics and soundstage at a very low price—this release is well worth it!

      Not sure what all the negative fuss is about for a great sounding, heavy, flat, respectably quiet pressing. I agree it almost has a processed sound to it. But certainly not bad at all. Still maintains a decent soundstage and has decent dynamics. Killer for price.

        Sounds incredibly flat. Bought four records yesterday and learned about the Waxtime questionable business model the hard way. Don't buy these! Really hurts the music and should be illegal!

          Overall great sounding pressing but mine came with a bad scratch/skip on the last song on side B.

            Anyone know the source? This is a really good sounding re issue, quiet and dynamic, couldn't afford a original or expensive ré release but v happy with this one, listening on a modded Thorens 160 with At vmn95ml stylus, IFI Zen phono, Arcam Alpha 8 and Dali Oberon 5 speakers.

              Despite the name WaxTime on the sleeve, this is a very good specimen. For $22 or whatever I paid, I am pleased. Stereo separation is great, the 180g vinyl is sturdy and dead silent. A fair trade off for a mint copy that is affordable.

              Nothing needs to be said about the Bill Evans Trio performance, as that is truly the pinnacle of jazz ensemble. You want this record in your collection.

                Highest quality record I own. This pressing is beautiful in sound quality so much so I notice a discernible difference with the other records I own.

                  I was recently able to replace this 2012 Waxtime pressing with a 2008 OJC/Riverside one. Public domain re-issues such as Waxtime are always a hit or miss affair, in this case a clear miss when compared with the greater presence and detail obtained from the 2008 OJC/Riverside pressing. The difference is most noticeable in the detail and tone of LaFaro's bass and Motian's drums and in the level if surface noise, greater on the Waxtime. If you can track down a mint OJC/Riverside pressing, well worth the relatively small amount extra.

                    Disappointed with my copy. Brand new... never been near my turntable but it has a scratch in Side B track 2. Returning it to the retailer for an exchange. Hopefully, it's not endemic to the whole series of pressings.

                      Nothing to add here. Only that it will sound great and it will provide you with the best sounds at that exact moment!
