Based on other reviews I bought the vinyl version. Yola's performance is great and she has a wonderful voice. The quality of the disk is very good - It is heavy vinyl and the surface is quiet and free of defects. However, the sound quality is not great compared to the digital version. Unfortunately, this has been my experience with many modern recordings - the digital (i.e., CD) version often sounds better. This is in contrast to older recordings (from the 60's and 70's) where the LP version typically sounds better than the (later) CD version. There are a number of reasons for this which are not relevant to this review.
Yola has a powerful voice with a lot of dynamic range. Unfortunately, the engineer who created the master for the vinyl version used excessive compression. Other reviewers have described this as a wavering sound. This compression is not evident on the digital version. Basically, as Yola's voice, and the backing musicians increase in volume, the actual volume of the music does not increase. This is experienced as her voice receding on louder passages. This was done in order to prevent the stylus from skipping grooves on cheap turntables. But the compression was badly done and intrusive. Overall, if you are looking for the best sound quality buy the CD version. However, if you like the vinyl experience and are not seeking the best sounding version of the album go for the vinyl.
