I confirm, these Italian pressings are at the same quality level, if not better, than US Liberty pressings. They use Van Gelder’s originated mother stampers. I have several of these Italian Blue Note releases of this era, all are true bargains !

Oddity : my copy has no van gelder stamp in the run out groove, a usual proof of the Englewood Cliffs’ master job on Blue Note pressings. Do your copy share the same feature ?

Excellent mastering and pressing. One can easily ear sonic differences between recording sessions. Overall very livy sound. Highly recommended.

If it has no « ear » stamped, it is a 1966-69 release from Liberty Records era.

A great French reissue, very well mastered by Y. Delaunay and pressed by RCA France. Livy, full bodied sound, Jeanne Lee is in your room. If you find one copy in nice condition, buy it with confidence.
