Street Fever is a killer track!
Solid album all around. Highly Recommended.

Good album. Mediocre pressing, I'm afraid to say.
Though if you see it for a good price, it's worth picking up.

EXCELLENT pressing. John reaches out of the speaker and slaps you across your face.

This is a good counterargument to anyone who says these colored vinyl records don't sound good. This pressing sounds fantastic.
The music is of course dazzling.

Sounds great. Excellent pressing, in my own personal private opinion.

Lovely music. If you are looking for spiritual jazz as the reviewer below, you may be disappointing. It is clearly informed by that, but it is essentially a soul/pop album. As that it's extremely interesting, and highly recommended!

Yeah it's not a very great pressing. But what a great album.,

I haven't heard an original copy, but my copy of this pressing sounds pretty good to my ears.

There is a track listing on the back. It's kind of hard to read though.

Great album. Not great pressing, even if the packaging is creative.

My copy sounds great. And it's a terrific album. Brilliance.

My copy is white, and says "Vinyl Me Please Exclusive Pressing" on the back, but doesn't appear to be numbered. Were some not numbered?
Great album either way!

Maybe a good place to start for someone trying to approach her early work for the first time.

Strange that they allow them to be sold on DIscogs when other bootlegs are blocked.
Though, as far as bootlegs go these sound pretty good to my ears. I have the Akira Toyoda and the Karlton Hester ones.

Not a comment on the songs themselves, but the quality of this pressing is just horrendous.
It's quiet, but the mid-tones are very muted.

Beside the OBI tag is there anything that makes the limited edition version special?
Are they necessarily the first 2000 pressed?
Excellent album either way.

There's no crackle on my copy. Not sure what you mean by dynamic, so I can't speak to that point.

Pick up a copy, or else you're going to regret it...

The inner sleeves are horrible, which is probably a factor. This kind of inner sleeve is just the worst.

This reissue sounds pretty good. Don't know much about t the label, but can't complain.

Yeah, it comes with a little booklet that has lyrics and some cute little illustrations.

Y'all need to get a record cleaner and an anti-static brush/gun.

My copy sounds lovely, but I did clean before playing.

This Mr. Bongo reissue sounds incredible!
No surprise as Mr. Bongo is a great label, but kind of shockingly good.

Compared to my original press of Reading Writing Arithmetic, this does not sound great. It's not "horrendous" as a previous commentator said, but it's definitely not great. Wonderful record though.

It sounds okay. An album of this length needs two discs to reach full potential though.

This version sounds very bland, sorry to say. Get a different one if you can.
Rating is for the album, not this pressing.

Wonderful album, too.

There may be oil.

Also, a fantastic album.

Portugal is in Europe :D
If they're producing subpar records maybe we need to look at revoking their membership.

Seriously one of the best things I've heard in a while, and this reissue sounds INCREDIBLE.

YES! Lots on siblance on this record. Not the greatest pressing. Could mean I need a better stylus though.

It sounds great. And what a great album.

Why does it say 2017 on the back if this was released in 2018? Is the an explanation, or should the description here be changed?
This is a pretty nice pressing, by the way.

My copy sounds great. As others have noted, it's not an album with particularly high sound quality in the first place.
Essential album.

Sounds exactly as it should. Very nice reissue.
Not sure how many were printed, but I'd suggest picking it up when you can!

Yes, I agree with the previous respondent. Sounds like a dream. I know that Arthur Verocai oversaw the mastering process when they reissued his self-titled album a couple years back, not sure if he did for this one too, but wouldn't be surprised!

If you're getting this because you loved Utakata No Hibi, just be aware it sounds nothing like it. And nowhere near as good.

John Coltrane's My Favorite Things claims to be taken from the master tapes. Seems very unlikely, but it does sound good.
I have several DOLY reissues, and they're all pretty good. Though I'm not going to say as good. When I compare my Jorge Ben... See full review

And the album is also spectacular.

These PoppyDisc reissues don't sound half-bad, especially for the price. Recommended.
