But when I got this LP I was seriously disappointed with the vinyl quality. It is a reasonably heavy LP but when you look at it, you see all kinds of clouds in the vinyl pressing, and the first one had a bunch of pits & flaws, and both had a skip. Just like the old MCA vinyl pressings from the 1980s (not to just knock MCA) but corporate vinyl can really suck sometimes, and this is one of those things. But surface noise is a big annoyance on what I thought might be a good new reissue vinyl LP.
I did return the LP and Amazon did do a good job of getting me a replacement copy pretty quickly. The second one was better than the first but not what it should be for what current vinyl buyers expect, especially for jazz.
The music is pretty good. Some good soloing by Harold & Bobby, and it ranges from post- bop to a bit of avant-garde without going too far out to get boring.
It is a great jazz LP for what you'd expect from these musicians but turns out, the vinyl (in a generic Blue Note 75th Anniversary sleeve) is nothing but another corporate disappointment.
I will have to also add, recently I bought from my local record store, the 180g 2-LP set of the "Smile Sessions" by the Beach Boys. I used to like the recordings and know the story but turns out, that vinyl I bought was as flawed as my first one of this, and I had to return it for a refund. What is up with EMI/Capitol vinyl these days? Don't they get it that people care about quality vinyl?
