perfect music, perfect mastering

5 Stars
Posted Thursday, December 15, 2016 by Anonymous Ellington plays Tchaikovsky. You can't go wrong. Flat, centered, quiet vinyl. It doesn't get any more fun than this if you are an Ellington fan.

Charles Mingus - Let My Children Hear Music Product No: APPR 31039

Category: 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Label: Pure Pleasure Records (Columbia)

Ok sound, missing the essay insert!

3 Stars
Posted Friday, April 30, 2010 by Robert Hutton This is a seminal album, unfortunately, the remastered sound is good - but far from great. The horns and solos are at times recessed, and the upfront sound doesn't help. I doesn't sound bad - far from it. It's just no better than a cheaper reissue and far from an original. To add insult to injury, the promised reproduction of the lengthy essay Mingus authored as a companion to the record - so integral to the presentation - wasn't included, despite the cover saying it is.

A Perfect Record

5 Stars
Posted Tuesday, September 30, 2008 by A.S. Yup, it's basically perfect. Drop needle, silence. Horns enter bright and vivid, drums are crisp, bass is round and rich. Solos are nicely balanced with the ensemble. LOTS of detail. An excellent re-mastering. Much care was obviously used in this presentation. Musically, it's Ellington at his big-band hippest, generally speaking. Cool arrangements- "A Train" in particular. "The Mooche" also packs quite a punch. "Skin Deep" features lots of drum solo: Loud, mean drum solo. "A Tone Parallel to Harlem" covers a lot of ground. This is Ellington flexing his compositional muscles. "Perdido" rounds out the set just fine. Get this re-master. The music jumps out at you. Makes the individual of discerning taste remember why they listen to vinyl.


Louis Armstrong - Plays W.C. Handy (mono) Product No: APPR 591
Available: InStock
Category: 180 Gram Vinyl Record
Label: Pure Pleasure Records (Columbia)

So this is why he was so famous!

5 Stars
Posted Monday, October 23, 2006 by Pat The best Armstrong I've heard. At least as desirable, delectable as Ella & Louis. The track with commentary from W. C. Handy, himself, is a wonderful bonus.

Best version of St. Louis Blues I've heard.
