QUESTION:

is  R-7233236-1436759130-7006.jpeg.jpgas good as the les strand baldwin records?   Is he as crazy on Hammond as he is on Baldwin.  The Yamaha demonstration record is pretty out there, but so was that instrument.  This one definitely is harder to find than the others, but was wondering if anyone has heard it, thanks

New BN Anniversary Series. The cover isn't luxury stuff, but the records is perfect with its Kevin Gray's sound.

BTW First time I listen to this one, now fellow BN fanatics let's start throwin' stones :D

"Wally" is five letters word in some vinyl clubs in LA, I wouldn't say that word, they are allowed to carry guns over there.

BTW Basra is great music, how could I have lived without it until now.

Wally Traugott's Blue Note cuts are fine. There's always someone wanting to complain somewhere. I bet the ones complaining are back to the "All Wally LPs are cut with a digital master" stuff. I've talked at length with Ron McMaster about the cutting system there are he says that LPs are not cut digitally unless they are only supplied with a digital master by the label. Blue Note did not do that. They always cut Blue Note LPs with master tapes. Nowadays, that might not be true, as they now store the Blue Note masters at an Iron Mountain facility but back when Wally was cutting, the masters were close by.

FWIW, if you're into Bob Seger's "Live Bullet" at all, the Wally cut is the only cut you should be looking for.

I was joking about RVG fetish, personally I like Wally’s work.

Oddly the LP omits the actual title track.

Damn - now I’ll have to get the CD as well. Typical ! :(

Sounds great on the vinyl though.

Actually, two tracks are omitted--it would have been a three sided LP if complete. The LP does sound great, like being at the Jazz Standard.

Got this in 1966 or 67 when I worked at the Jazz Record Mart. It still sounds terrific.

Another advantage of age. My grandparents bought original Jelly Roll Morton Victors.

And I got it around the same time as the George Russells, but I sold them when I got the cd.

the difference is extremely noticeable wes's guitar is centered and focused, and so is the rest.  its a balanced direct sound.  the stereo is more open and airy and the music "floats"- i have two ears but only one brain, but mono greatly improves this albums sound, specifcally on Wes's guitar, I can actually hear it now.    s-l1600.jpg
