Few clicks here and there but nothing distracting.

Cecil Taylor Unit - Live in Vienna (Leo). As Units go, the version with Carlos Ward, Leroy Jenkins, William Parker, and Thurman Barker was not the most connected to Cecil's message/vision, in my opinion. But this is still pretty good music. The double LP is around 20 minutes longer than the CD.

Tony Oxley-----------The Baptized Traveller--------(CBS Realm)

Wonderful session of great beauty, even the pressing is good :)

Really!? That's rare. I went through two visually mint copies of this one until I gave up and got a mint Japanese issue on Sony that has no clicks or pops whatsoever. For some reason I had better luck with my UK issue of "four compositions" which only has a few isolated pops...

Most of mine have the occasional clicks and pops apart from the Frank Ricotti, which is near mint. That one was a good deal at £15 from Mole Jazz.

Having said that, I prefer to listen to all of these on the 1990s reissue CDs - sound is usually superior to the Realm LPs.

i wonder how coltrane got in on this one, him at donald byrd recorded a lot that yr, rt? (this was rec 12/57). it seems to be a good sounding recording, i like the sound of blakeys cymbals on this (stereo Bethlehem, blue label) really weird though, its like an art blakey solo project, away from the jazz mesgrs. now i have to get that blue note art blakey big band lp. that ones going to be hard to find. isnt there a liberty reissue of that? might have that one.....

Still want an orig of this - never seen one though.

There was supposed to be an authorized reissue of this when Lasha was still alive but I think with his passing it fell apart.

Wondering if you could comment on the sound and quality of the pressing? I've been going back and forth on whether or not to purchase this lately. Thanks in advance.

Sound quality is great - best I've heard for this session - and the pressing is pristine.

again, this is so much better than the pac jazz orig. ive not found too many uk or european versions like this but i have a few and theyre all amazing. i have this esquire or something pressing of Paul Chambers delegation from the east on JazzWest-- it sounds better most originals. its all in the quality of the vinyl, and the covers look way better too as well. i have lots of these in rock/pop, but not in jazz. the only drawback is they are not as indestructible like the US versions, i cant just plop them in one of my many record piles. they vinyl is fragile as glass on some of them, i have them in a special area

Donald Bailey - So In Love

Only gotten to listen to Side 1 so far. LP was in rough shape due to being dirty when I bought it two years ago. Cleaned it with wood glue and I'm getting to hear it for the first time. Awesome.

Vinko Globokar "drama and correspondences" (BASF, Germany). Have not played this in over 10 years or more...inspired by Michel Portal thread today.
