        This is a pretty good pressing overall. Zanzibar seems a little veiled compared to the rest of the record, but still sounds good for the era.

          How can I tell if my record is Terre Haute Pressing or not?

            Not a bad tune on the entire disk. Lots of catchy hooks, great stories, and tight ensemble work. "Zanzibar" with Freddie Hubbard solos is my favorite track. Killer LP.
