Formidable Coltrane date for Prestige ....

Coltrane before he became "Coltrane"? - at least according to some. :)

I like those Trane Prestige albums that have just been mentioned.

I like them too. I hope folks realize that my comment was sarcastic.

Good catch Paul - this was my thought too and resulted in this enormously satisfying replay of "Soultrane" ....

Harold Vick - Don't Look Back (Strata East, 1974)

I’m assuming this is quite different than Stepping Out

I agree that one shouldn't look back when stepping out.

That whole 12CD Miles box (Prestige) was one of the buys of a lifetime.

Yeah. Different time, different vibe.  If you dislike the sound of a Fender Rhodes, you should stay away from Don't Look Back.  

Myself, I LOVE that sound. :) In fact, I think Don't Look Back is an all-around fan-stinkin'-tastic record.

Speaking of... I just discovered that the U.K.-based company Pure Pleasure has just reissued Don't Look Back -- in limited edition vinyl-only format. After some poking around on the web, I found several US retailers that stock it for about $35. I very rarely buy new vinyl -- especially new vinyl at that price point.  But I think I'm going to make an exception in this case.  This music is SO good that I want to upgrade my blogosphere-sourced download with the "real thing."

I hope I'm not too late here but I was all for doing the same until I read a number of comments about the quality of the PP reissue. I can't think where now but will see if I can find the references

Oh wow.  Hadn't heard that mjazzg. I would really appreciate any info, if you're able to dig it up.

I'd expect TOP NOTCH quality & sound at that price point.  I'll definitely pass if that's not the case.

I'm looking now, will PM if I find it again. I know I'm not imagining it as I was really excited by the prospect and I'd been impressed by one PP reissue so was surprised

I listened for a little bit on YouTube last night before I went to bed so I need to listen more. I’m not that familiar with a Fender so I don’t have any feelings one way or the other.

I would also be interested in any further insights on the sonic quality as I am tempted too by the Pure Pleasure reissue and Honest Jon stocks it I believe.

Ok folks, I've tried to find the online discussion about the Vick Pure Pleasure and completely failed, sorry.

So I may have cast unfounded aspersions but I remember it was a discussion about the relative merits of PP reissues and the Vick wasn't getting the same positive responses that others were. It wasn't being trashed just "not as good as some of the others". 

I have to say that every review I've just now visited in an attempt to find these comments has been roundly positive.

It may also be that this extended UK summer is getting to me :rolleyes:
