    Weak recording, Sounds thin and lacks warmth. Avoid if you can afford the original pressing. Its not up to the other HMV Re:Vinyl releases.

      I hesitated. Figured I’d wait for a 1st press in good condition for a reasonable price. Then this came up at a decent price brand new from a UK retailer so took a chance and glad I did. Quality of vinyl is excellent and a really good reproduction of jacket and label (maybe the label colours are not quite at saturated as the original). Main thing is though is the sound and it is certainly enjoyable to these ears. Highly recommended.

          As fun as this album is, it doesn’t sound as full and rich as the digital streaming version. The mids and bass are overpowered by thin higher tones. Some might say it’s because I’m playing it on a this or that system with this or that cartridge, but I don’t believe that’s the reason. Sure it could be a cultural preference but there are other pressings from Japan that sound better. So… someone please tell me why this pressing doesn’t sound as great as it did when I streamed it.

            Need badly. Repress, repress, repress, repress, repress, repress, repress. Do it.

              What a gem! Another gorgeous pressing in a great series (Deep Jazz Reality).
