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

My copy sounds lovely.
Wonderful album, too.

There may be oil.

Sounds pretty good for a self-released record!
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.

This copy of the album sounds like a worthless piece of shit--------------said no one ever!!!
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.

Sounds okay and includes his Ruby My Dear with Coltrane, in addition to the one that came on the original album with Hawkins.

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.

Fantastic album. The only RSD release I got this year, and I'm happy I did.

Best reissue label of all time? Maybe not. In the top ten? It's possible, but unlikely.
But is it a damn good fucking reissue label? Of that you can be sure. I don't think you should have any hesitation in making that particular claim.

There is considerable surface noise in this pressing, but I still love putting it on. Fabulous album.

Where can one buy this that isn't their website (with the exorbitant shipping costs)? Was the pressing delayed or what?

Give it a few tries. I'm convinced it is one of her best albums now. And it is incredibly moving.

It's a fantastic album, but the double picture disc isn't necessary. And the delays were annoying.
It sounds pretty good--for a picture disc. Would probably sound better if it weren't one. If it's going to be split over 2 discs, it should have at least ... See full review

Haha. I don't think he was trying to fool everyone. That song is very popular. It's a reference, which artists do all the time. It's not the same as plagiarism, but I don't expect you to understand that nuance.

My copy is great. I Have a lot of records with silence and very quiet sections, where surface noise issues are particularly pronounced, and this is definitely one of the better ones.

My copy has the side A label on both sides. Anyone else have this problem?
Not really a big deal though, just have to look closely at what's etched on the vinyl.
I think the sound quality is great, too.

Very low volume bootleg. Beside that it sounds okay.
Didn't realize this was a bootleg before I bought it from ebay. Will probably keep though.
