Tommy Flanagan Overseas reissue a technical knockout

18 posts in this topic

The APO reissue of Overseas is amazing. Elvin Jones sounds like he's in the room and the piano has a wonderful midrange tone with a hint of stringed percussive quality that so often is missing on CD or lossy MP3. A must-have.

I have the CD version of Overseas, not the SACD referred to by Groover. The sound is terrific and it has 3 alternate takes that are not on the SACD.

I just bought the John Coltrane album "Coltran" from the same series and it is indeed an excellent pressing. The Flannigan album is definitely on my short list of others to get in that series.

I'm glad that it's cut at 33 1/3 instead of 45 rpm too.

The CD version is indead a lot cheaper. Can't vouch for its sound quality.

Yes, Coltrane is my favorite Trane album so I was thrilled with this SACD (I haven't been getting the vinyl). There is now a Prestige and Verve series coming from APO. The Prestige All Stars SACD is another gem.

How likely are these Analogue Productions SACDs to go out of print soon? I own a couple, but would like to buy a few more of the Blue Note, Impulse! and Verve titles.

A lot of APO's early SACDs, such as Waltz for Debby, are still available. So my guess would be these will remain in stock for many more years. That said, when SACDs go OOP, the prices are ridiculous. So it may be best to just cave and buy them now.

No idea if they are limited editions, but some are pretty hard to find now.

Erwin,

A whole bunch of these Analogue Productions hybrid SACDs will be available again from ImportCDs in March at relatively low prices: http://www.importcds...-Harmonia Mundi (from page 2)

For those of us in California it's actually cheaper to order from Amazon, Acoustic Sounds or Music Direct because of the taxes that ImportCDs now charges.

Hmm. I have this on a Japanese Metronome LP from the '70s. Sound is excellent. I'm not sure the alternates would make me "need" this but regardless, it's a wonderful album that deserves consistent mention. The Metronome EPs (the original issues of this material) are pretty fancy looking, though I've never owned one.

Mine's a Japanese pressing too. Cost about £5!

This may well be the best/worst visual pun ever!

It's a record, not a visual pun. It's more fun to hear than to see.
