What the heck? You think wrong, so maybe fact check. Japan has never stopped pressing records, and has pressed more than any other place per capita, with many audiophile record collectors. Pressed isn't the same as where it is released. Many things... See full review

There was another repress in 2019 and quite a few of those floating around even still new in some places.

This is a gem. One of the best and unique in his catalogue. The evolutions of the sound, very innovative and very listenable. He really had a good vision for a unique new agey album that is not in the slightest cheesey but nice and cosmic.

I couldn't disagree more with the below. To each his own I guess. You can listen and decide for yourself. This is one of my top 3 Lps out of a 1000 that I own. Great to meditate to at the end of the day and be reminded that just experiencing beautiful... See full review

Another unofficial Euro disc. It would be nice if they did a legit all analogue repress of this stateside, or other Bill Evans for that matter.

Nooo... Please don't stoke the sample goons! You all don't need everything your heroes sample just because they did.

Probably the last all analogue press of this -circa 1980, with the nude cover. Sounds fantastic!

I have a copy that is a late numbered cover 5K+, and it has no sound issues. It sounds like it is as good as the recording could possibly afford. Of course the numbering of the covers doesn't necessarily represent the order the vinyl came off the... See full review

Love this album. I think this has the same feel, and is as good as his trio/quartet work that is so highly regarded and sought. It strikes that nice balance of experimentation and tight grooves. I happen to like strings too, and they are used very... See full review

This is the one to grab. The original mini LP will just leave you wanting more. This has another full record of most of their stuff. Too bad they didn't ad more tracks to the latest reissue, and fill that album out more. Best bang for your buck here.... See full review

I guess the wait is over if you have $180 to spend on a boxset for all the albums. That is great progress towards lessening the Sade quality vinyl deficit. If you want to get just this album it didn't get any cheaper exactly. At least that will drive... See full review

This would have been put together digitally for sure. Generally is when you see Cds came out at the same time.

This sounds great for being "unofficial". I don't think it is the same as most unofficial stuff and probably came from a direct master tape source. A fave reggae record.

How is the sound quality on this Schema issue? Better than La Ragazza Fuoristrada?

There aren't many albums like this one, but if you dig Storm check out this rare album. Not quite as sparse as that song but the whole album is more consistent and very good: 惣領泰則* & Jim Rocks ‎– So Long America...

This is an amazing album. The whole album is somewhat like Rare Silk's best song 'Storm'. Seems a total oddity in this artist's catalogue as it's unlike his other stuff. The vocal harmonies are sublime and just smother the album with such utter... See full review

Check out his first album too if you dig this. It is equally good, if not endorsed by whoever is making this so popular, so also more affordable.

This album is awesome. In my top 20 out of 1000 LPs. That perfect mix of elements coming out of France and Italy in the early 70s, especially on soundtracks - some of my favorite records to spin. It's a better than many of those famous soundtracks... See full review

This is an excellent compilation with cool cover art too. It has what I consider two of their best songs 'Sunny Afternoon' and "I'm not like everybody Else'. It also has two of their funniest with 'dedicated Follower' and "Sit-in on my sofa". Highly... See full review

Who changed these versions up? This used to be the standard TMB -26 and not the promo, so it shows I have this promo now. This messes up who all has this, as well as how it has sold. This needs to be changed back. Not this many people have the promo.... See full review

This first official repressing is superb quality. I think they did this album justice both in sound and presentation on near 180gm before it was a thing and with an extra 12" and full gatefold. I happened to get mine from a guy who played a show with... See full review

I've heard they used the same stampers as the first presses on these TBM second presses. Same label ring and pressed at Toshiba, which copies after '77 aren't. Either way they are a nice nearly identical superb sounding option if you are not a 1st... See full review

I like the traditional natural setting cover better than this one for sure, but this press is superior probably than most of the JA pressing, having been made by United Artist. Also it's a known '78 analogue era pressing. Solid buy for a solid top... See full review

Killer comp. A great way to get all his best stuff on analogue LP for cheap. Otherwise it is spread over so many albums. Not sure why this doesn't get better ratings. The music is tops, and the pressing sounds great.

This sounds fantastic. Such a nice pressing. Although I usually stick to analogue originals this was well worth picking up. Probably better sound than the originals, especially worn or Jamaican press copies. MOV did great on this one. Grab it while... See full review

From a number of sources I'm quite certain Turn Table records was Jackie's own label and he released this himself on his own label for the US while in New York. It was still printed with the others in Canada though. Perhaps an attempt to distribute... See full review

I had to buy this after loving Varech so much. I agree the inner sleeve must be sandpaper, because mine came super scratched up new. This is pressed super shallow. It had a tiny un-feelabe scratch that made huge pops. It still sounds really good... See full review
