I'm looking for just the sleeve. No preference on issue as long as the sleeve looks good. Please message me if you have one.

I disagree with the previous owner's inscribed comment on the label that says "no good," I personally find it to be very good!

My copy has A4/A5 runouts, but otherwise exactly the same as this one, is this considered a variant of this pressing or is it just its own pressing?

dwdavies1 , thanks for the comparison. I have been looking for advice on whether or not I should get this as an upgrade over my CD, I guess I have my answer, which is to wait until I have the money for (or am lucky enough to find a cheap one) an old pressing. See full review

Hope this helps. This is a shady label but they have some good stuff. I haven't taken a chance with them but this is what the owner claims:

Ok so this is a public domain label run by Fresh Sounds.

There are reports of mixed provenance on these releases.

The owner of Fresh Sounds is said to have acquired a number of tapes back in the 80s, likely cutting masters (not original session recordings). See full review

This desperately needs a reissue. I would even settle for a bootleg at this point

I've noticed this too. Glad I am not the only person who noticed this. Is it this way on every pressing?

Anyone know how they source the masters for Impulse stuff? I.e. Serve you Right to Suffer and any of the Coltrane/Mingus/Rollins/etc stuff they have coming out soon on AS

This is how reissues should be done. All analog, but still remastered (let alone affordable!). No pressing issues whatsoever on my end or that I've seen on here. Maintains the original art but still offers a heaping helping of new liner notes. The... See full review

This is one of the first records I bought. When I was first getting into vinyl, I didn't know about discogs and this was what was available to order at the store I shopped at (Ear X-Tacy, RIP). Incredible, timeless music. Not a great pressing though IMO

Dunno if I'm in the minority here but I'm not crazy about the sound quality. Par the course with ESP though, not totally surprised. Regardless, its all about the music, which is fantastic and deserves 100 stars. Stoked to have this in any form... See full review

Yeah, I agree. I know they had plans for the sleeves that they couldn't follow through with. What they ended up with looks like the CD cover blown up (grainy, full of artifacts)

I've had this pressing for around a year. Great sound, but very thin vinyl (think Dynaflex thin)

Cold and sterile sounding but not a terrible pressing. Bonus tracks are good.

One of my all time favorites. Definitely more accessible than some of the other free jazz out there, but this is not a criticism by any means.

I think I have this version too. It says University Series of Fine Recordings on the cover. I'll try to make a listing for this variant later tonight.

Highly recommended. Never listened to an original, but the sound is definitely an upgrade over listening to it digitally.

I agree 100% man, never really understood the hype about this guy. The album should be renamed Fischer Price: My First Spiritual Jazz
