3.0 out of 5 stars Well Flawed, April 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 1961 Helsinki Concert (Audio CD)
As one reviewer has already pointed out, the speed on this recording is off, which means it runs a mite slowly. I've listened to a lot of bootleg recordings over the years, so I have a high tolerance for low fidelity. In edition to being slowed up, the sound quality is pretty muddy - though, the horns are right up front. That being said, I like how this sounds - the slowness fattens the tone in a cool way, to my ears anyway.

Also note, the "rare" "bonus tracks" on this deal can be found on the Naxos "Jazz Icons' DVD "John Coltrane: Live in '60, '61, & '63."Jazz Icons: John Coltrane Live in '60, '61 & '65 The sound quality on the DVD is better than on this CD and plus you get to see the tunes played.
