agree. it's small bug definitely there on this version and the colored repress. I think it should be added here and there: https://www.discogs.com/release/11950051-Jay-Dee-Aka-J-Dilla-Welcome-2-Detroit

Pharoah Sanders - Black Unity
posted a review of Pharoah Sanders - Black Unity. 4 months ago
Another one of the great ones from "The Impulse! Reissue Series". many of the 96-97 batches are the best cuts/pressings out there.

In my opinion this one bests the original. It's very natural and open. Cut about as hot as you could from the original... See full review

The Future Disc cut is good. The pressing is a bit noisy from Rainbo. not their best. I believe the remastered source helps out here.

it's shallow and more of a collectors item than something worth spinning. I prefer some of the remastered CDs I've heard of this album over this original pressing. any amount of money you'd spend on this pressing would be better spent going towards... See full review

Disappointing pressing. Noisy vinyl all around, tons of surface noise, crackle after a few wet cleans. Low quality wax, (my copy has jagged serrated edges), vocal sibilance all over the place (Hard Piano being the worst). For the most part I enjoyed... See full review

agree with maka_ here "best cut of this album" yet. but I feel like this might need a complete new remaster if we really wanted to see the full potential realized on vinyl. All these pressings likely used the same source, so we're really just... See full review

Incredible album (the title track is a top three Sanders song in my book)... but this pressing sounds thin and flat. When possible avoid the original Impulse US green bullseye pressings (1974-79). Though there are not a lot of options here, the Japan,... See full review

Rarely do you hear a 25+ min per side of an LP sound so good. There's some unobtrusive surface noise on my copy, but that's the extent of the flaws. And zero IGD. It amazes me that the sound quality on this is far superior to the later 2xLP Traffic... See full review

Excellent packaging, presentation and quiet pressing (by QRP). But sonically this sounds fairly flat to me, especially in comparison to the other modern era VMP Classics. i enjoy the music and the vibes, but it just feels a bit tame given all the... See full review

Heard this album 1000 times and I don't think i've ever heard it sound as good as it does on this pressing (STERLING A-2 / B EG). To echo lucaper, the soundstage is incredible. The bass is perfect (nice and fat like a reggae record should be but... See full review

the censored word is in the beginning of verse two when Malik B. says "And don't stop, just droppin off my bags, you f**s". The rest of the song remains "uncensored" (ie Black Thoughts verse 1 still dropping the profanity in all its grace).

Anyone else have a copy where on Mellow My Man all sound is inexplicably but gradually turned down to 0 for a few seconds just before the second verse? I've played A4 several times over at it happens in the same spot.

noticed something similar on a few tracks from the 1st pressing. doesn't seem to be a problems with later pressings that use the same stampers, so must have been just with that specific run.

Music is incredible (I was actually at one of the concerts this was recorded).... but avoid this, (the United pressing) and seek out one of the Record Industry pressings. Much better lacquer cuts and higher quality wax:

The label initially shipped these out in loose poly bags. Rookie move. A significant amount were damaged in shipping, so much so that they're doing another batch which should be coming in the next few months.

If it is sealed it will have the "Respect The Classics" sticker on it. If it's not sealed check the runouts on each side for the RTI catalog numbers listed above.

There are a lot of sellers on here listing this one incorrectly.

I hate to admit it but this reissue is actually pretty good. Especially for a GZ bootleg. The jacket and pressing are fine; nothing great but they succeed by taking nothing away. minimal surface noise... but the sound is what absolutely caught me... See full review

Unquestionably the best pressing currently available. Side D is unnecessary and skippable, but allows the album to be spread out on 3 sides (which is absolutely needed). Cut loud and has a nice punchy low end, never overpowering. Pressing is solid.... See full review

because ever version of this recording is presented in stereo and it is redundant to otherwise note it. it only makes sense to tag something as stereo when there is also a mono version.
