Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time 103/500

In 1960, the hugely innovative sax master Coltrane was taking some giant steps of his own — this was the first recording of an entirely Trane-penned set and it achieved the stunning emotional intensity for which his live work was renowned.

Simply an amazing bargain for the price. Heavy, flat, quiet vinyl and the jacket is beautifully reproduced. Fit and finish of the whole package is outstanding, with one minor niggle being the plain paper inner sleeve. While perhaps not the final word in sonic detail and presence, the sound and remastering are nonetheless very, very good (IMO). All in all, this package seems more in line with albums I've purchased in the 30-35$ price range. At the current $21.98 list price, one simply can't go wrong.


Great surprise!

For the money you can't go wrong with this Rhino re-issue. Very nice pressing and it sounds great too!

all around excellent, clear presentation, and I really like the Atlantic black label for mono recordings! It lacks the immediacy of an original, and it's a little bassy, like most modern remasters, but if you have the means to acquire a quiet original you aren't reading this. Coltrane's Atlantic recordings were hard panned, so enjoy the room-filling mono on quiet flat centred vinyl!
