I can confirm this is a decent pressing with a poly lined inner sleeve. Not sure of the source of the audio but it is well mastered for vinyl. Lovely sounds

Sounds good, does have some non fill which thankfully doesnt affect the sound on this one. I've had lots of issues with non fill on these 80s and the blue note classics, Optimal just isnt that great. Much prefer the pressing quality of the Tone Poets... See full review

No issues with my copy, it actually sounds really good. Not a fan of the green vinyl but the mastering and pressing are nice.

This is a solid pressing housed in a sturdy tip on sleeve. Not sure of the source of the audio but my copy is free of surface noise, centered and flat. Glad to have this pressing.

Pitch black background and theres something amazing about the drums on this pressing, so much punch on the low end. Mine has zero surface noise and is perfectly flat. Amazing release.

Absolutely floored at the remastering and presentation. From the start it jumps out of the speakers. I’ve got a bunch of mofi and analogue productions releases and this is right up there in sound quality

I have an original stereo pressing and the tape hiss is evident, must be in the master recording, which is a shame.

Holy guacamole this sounds so good, just perfectly silent pressing and the mastering makes it all pop so nicely. Really glad I was able to grab one of these remasters. Real nice.

I just got this and the music literally jumps out of the speakers, it actually startled me at points. The silent places are pitch black and the nuances of the performance are unparalleled.

Super decent pressing, thick flat and silent wax. Decent mastering and soundstage. Was wondering if I needed to upgrade for a better pressing but after giving this a spin I’m happy w this version of this classic
