"...As good as the original Impulse pressing sounds, Analogue Productions' release will leave lovers of this record pinned to their seats. The music is simply and stunningly 'there.'" - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, September 2010

"Kevin Gray's new 45RPM mastering of John Coltrane's masterpiece A Love Supreme is an absolute 'must-buy'! I know what many are thinking...hey, I have the one Kevin did for Speakers Corner a few years ago, or if they're very, very lucky they might have an original orange label pressing on Impulse. Hopeless collector that I am, I have both. Folks, I'm here to tell you that Kevin's 45RPM remaster of this wondrous Coltrane session is the deepest, clearest view into the session that took place December 9th, 1964 at Rudy Van Gelder's Englewood Cliff's studio that ever existed. Sure, there are other ways to hear the music recorded that day, but none will literally transport you back in time to witness the living, breathing essence of the music this quartet recorded that day quite like these two 45RPM records. If you love this music like I do, you absolutely OWE it to yourself to buy this album." - Joe Harley, VP AudioQuest, MusicMattersJazz.com

"...As with the first six titles in this series, Analogue Productions went out of its way to make sure they reproduced the cover correctly. The beautifully laminated gatefold is made of heavy cardstock...For those who have listened to this record a lot over the years, this 45 RPM mastering is going to hit you over the head - and hard. From Elvin Jones' opening gong, to the final crescendo of Psalm, this 45 RPM pressing of A Love Supreme, is delivered with a degree of detail, and most of all dynamic range, that I haven't heard on any other version - vinyl or CD, of this album." 45 RPM Reissue of the Year - My Vinyl Review, November 2010

Right from the very first hearing, absolutely every single jazz critic shared the same opinion - whether trained musicians or not, true or would-be jazz expert: A Love Supreme is John Coltrane's most important recording. And the rave reviews which appeared in the magazines Downbeat, Jazz Hot, Jazz Podium and Swingjournal reflected this: critics all over the world, in America, Europe and Japan recognized that Coltrane's deep religious belief had influenced both his approach to life and his music-making. It not only enabled him to express himself with great intensity but also lent him the necessary inner peace to conceive a work of almost 40 minutes in length and to lead his quartet along the same path as himself.

Recorded in 1964.

the 33 1/3 is just fine, who needs 45 rpm

Reviewer: a lover of supreme
One of my favorite albums by one of my favorite artists

it sounds fabulous, but not a huge revelation above the QRP 33 1/3 version.

having to get up and flip the record, rather than being caught in the musical trance makes me detest this format

thanks for making it available, but please focus on doing quality 33 1/3 jazz releases instead of 45s


Stunning piece of music

One of the most historical jazz albums is given the Analogue Productions 45 rpm treatment. The sound quality is stunning, the soundstage goes well beyond the width and the depth of the speakers and the tone is very natural. One of the best reissues I've purchased.

With all the hype over this recording I was expecting much more. It will probably find it's way into the back recess of my record shelfing.


Amazing

Reviewer: Kevin
This album is a magical moment in jazz history. Its music you can listen to and grow with your whole life. Hearing the 45 rpm version of this classic was a new experience. As I listened it was like hearing it for the first time. I was drawn into the performance like never before. Bottom line is that if this album is one you like you have to get this.
