Thievery Corporation - Saudade
posted a review of Thievery Corporation - Saudade. 12 days ago
Mine was significantly edge and dish warped, with crackling in the first track. Trying to get a replacement to see if I can get a better one. The vocals on Decollage are more up front than the CD version I own and sound crisper, but some of the drum... See full review

Cecil Taylor - The World Of Cecil Taylor
posted a review of Cecil Taylor - The World Of Cecil Taylor. 9 months ago
Badly dish warped, poor sound quality (probably due to the warp), dirty record, and full of static/noise. No thanks, it's being returned. 4 other recent Candid reissues have negative reviews similar to mine (warping, static) so it's safe to say I... See full review
Tommy Flanagan - Nights At The Vanguard

Sensational live set by Tommy. Engaging and really sets a late night jazz club atmosphere. Mastering by RVG, so this sounds great, too. A top favorite album in my jazz collection.

They spelled vinyl without the "L" on the end. "Viny". I wouldn't say bootleg, but more like a public domain release label. The Tangerine Dream live RSD releases have similar OBI artwork as these are both Culture Factory issues and shown on their... See full review

Good concert but cheap cover (both records are in 1 sleeve), below average sound quality (distortion through all 4 sides), and warped vinyl. Not a reliable label for quality.
Soraya (5) - I Never Loved You

The youtube videos do nothing for this song, you have to play the vinyl for the full impact. Sounds amazing and is a rare freestyle gem.

If you find a clean copy. I have found these 2 Eyes do not hold marks well and anything at all will make them sound crackly.

I had 2 copies and both had the same distortion. Looked pressed off center, too..
Gerald Wilson Orchestra - Portraits
posted a review of Gerald Wilson Orchestra - Portraits. about 1 year ago
Lots of great musicians here, as Wilson is a highly skilled arranger and composer. Also check out California Soul from '68. That one also features Harold Land on sax, Bobby Hutcherson, and even Tommy Flanagan playing harpsichord!

Vinyl Styl outer sleeves. Although once in a while you can get a batch that will be too tight. I've bought maybe 6 packs of 50 and 5 were fine and fit Tone Poets, but one batch I had wouldn't fit.

"Their customer service is terrible." Couldn't agree more with this comment. Probably the worst customer service I've experienced with a vinyl mail order company.

I got 2 different copies from 2 different sources and both had non fill fuzz sounds during B1, Gracie. The first one worse than the second, but both were loud enough to be a notable nuisance.

Why chance it when the original '85 pressing can be bought for half the price (or less) than this reissue, and sounds phenomenal (mastered by RVG).

I've never had to exchange or return so much vinyl from any other pressing plant. They just can't get it right. Non fill definitely their biggest issue.

Fantastic late career album from Silver. A shame it may never get pressed on vinyl. Contains one of Horace's top 5 songs of his career, The Hippest Cat In Hollywood. Michael Brecker sounds amazing, as usual.

Tone Poets are good pressing quality, but the 80 and classic series have been plagued by issues: non fill, warps, scratches, smudges and grease on the surfaces. I've had to return or exchange more than half of the ones I've purchased. When you get a... See full review

How about a huge gouge that causes a pop for 32 rotations on side 2, track 2? I'd say that's a pretty big negative. And as others note, the piano is nearly swallowed up in this. Sonny ends one song with some nice notes, but they sound half as loud in... See full review

This has got to be the first pressing, if it's the only version with the taped over liner notes. All other releases look to have a corrected printed inner sleeve without the patch over it.
