Analogue Productions' Blue Note and Nat "King" Cole Reissues WIN A Positive Feedback 2010 Brutus Award!
"...if you haven't picked up every one of the Blue Note and Nat King Cole reissues from Chad Kassem and company at Acoustic Sounds, you're really missing out!" - David W. Robinson, Positive Feedback, Issue 52

"…As much as I'd love to relay all kinds of anecdotes about the challenges Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray encounter during the mastering sessions, I witness none. These boys know the sound of the facility and the Van Gelder masters like the backs of their hands…Back home a month later, I unpack some test pressings Chad Kassem has sent me…I hear the most realistic-sounding drums ever reproduced by my system. It's as though I'm sitting at the point of creation, experiencing the same high that brought such gifted musicians together as one. Steve Hoffman, Kevin Gray, Chad Kassem, and Don MacInnis have done Rudy Van Gelder and his Blue Note artists proud." – Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, April 2008

Time is suspended on these haunting, extended tunes by this brilliant guitarist with the aid of an all-star cast. Unique in Green's discography for its relaxed, lengthy performances and almost dream-like lyricism, this Blue Note classic could well be called Ballads for the Ages.

Originally released in 1963.

A poor sounding reissue!!!

Reviewer: Stefano
I am very disappointed by this 45 rpm reissue: first of all, let me know where instruments like Bobby Hutcherson's vibes or Al Harewood's drums have gone! No dynamics, no presence at all, no soundstage. It is difficult to produce a poor reissue like this from a wonderful sounding lp. In addition, the lps have several clicks and pops. Luckily I own a first pressing and it seems to listen to another record! It's worse than the worst of our european reissues.


A Must Have Album

Reviewer: Hakan Kalkan
One of my favorite jazz classics. The first track "Idle Moments" is a masterpiece. The audio quality and pressing are also very good.


Nice pressing sonically better than BLP4154

I own many of the original BN recordings. This one sounds better than my original which is in VG++ condition. While I did hear some very light ticks during the title track, I would have to say overall very nice pressing.


Excellent music but...

Reviewer: Vangelis
I agree with the previous reviewer. Pops and clicks during low-volume parts of the album (especially during the magnificent first track "Idle moments") are totally unacceptable for a 50$ LP. The production team should be more careful....


Nice but a little noisy

A little too many pops and clicks for my taste but I'm still happy to own this.
