You've been playing this a fair amount it seems. Must be REALLY good? Might need to go get one, then.

Hard to go wrong with Bags and a program of the Blues.  I think you'd dig it.  

Nice playing from Vinson too.

I have this on CD but the sound is a bit thin. How's the LP? The music is tight...

I didn't notice that, Dub.  But my 53-year-old ears ain't what they used to be! ;)

Now spinning:

Dick-Wellstood-Hanrattys-600.png

Dick Wellstood - Live at Hanratty's (Chaz Jazz, 1981)

Believe it or not, this 2-LP set opens with a ruminative and inward version of "Jingle Bells" -- a description that one wouldn't usually associate with that song!  Otherwise, there's a raft of Fats Waller-associated tunes.  But Wellstood again does his own thing with them.  It's all good fun -- and living music through tunes that happen to be old.

Ok, now I don't know whether or not to go for a CD or insist on a LP. Pretty much everybody's Digital was thin sounding in those days...clean but thin...but if Pablo put an analog layer in it for the LP that they did not for the CD, then the LP would be my choice.

It's definitely possible that the LP sounds better.

The version that I found in the shop happened to be semi-translucent red vinyl.

I think this may be the ONLY colored vinyl in my entire collection.  Not certain.  But I don't recall any others.

As an owner of the CD I'd rec trying the LP first. Edit to add, if you're interested, message me and I'll send a track so you can hear it.

Undecided on that one. Have far too many versions (including an orig) already.

One of my favourite versions is the UK domestic issue from 1976 which came with a US sleeve. Bust a gut with my School Summer hol job carting sacks of cement to afford that one !

To be honest, I only bought this because I was in a local shop and saw it in the bins... pumping a little money into the local economy. :)

I actually compared it a bit to my "go to" CD version (UCCI-9030) and I think the CD sounds a bit better. I'm not worried though because this is my only vinyl version.

It is.  Got bored waiting for a UK one. 

Now listening to the Redial CD of 'Free Form' and the 'Abstract' LP sounds so much fuller and less bright. How's the 'Free Form' LP sound (assuming you have it, you do don't you?)?
