Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Right off, for anyone considering whether or not to purchase this disc, consider how much sound means to you. As far as the music goes, I've posted an extensive review of this here: Live in Seattle, which is tied to the 1994 and 2012 American editions. What I wanted to post here, though, is why, if you want to get this album, you should get this version. The reason is two-fold, but equally important. The first has to do with the music: the 2012 American edition, which has good sound, has returned the album to its "original running order". In some of the studio albums, especially those from Coltrane's lifetime, this has a certain appeal (though all of Coltrane's songs are worth owning). But in the case of this album, the extreme length of "Body and Soul" and "Afro Blue" forced Impulse to leave the songs off in the 71 double album edition. Why would anyone not want these tracks, ESPECIALLY "Body and Soul", which may be Coltrane's finest version of the jazz warhorse? It simply doesn't make sense that people have been waiting around to get the original edition again - and thankfully Universal Japan seems to get this. Here the Coltrane listener gets it all. Of course, the 1994 edition is easy enough to get, and that would get a person all the tracks at half the price. Why get this one?

The answer is simple: the SOUND. Whether the SHM format really makes that much more difference than MLPS, gold MFSL discs, blue specs, SACDs, or any other physically different format is beyond me. I've heard them all and own a few of each and really, they all sound good. What I can say about the sound engineers in Japan is that they haven't lost their hearing - this record is mixed WONDERFULLY.
