A total classic!  Had the original jewel box denon CD.  Then I bought the original LP.  Then I bought the mini LP reissue CD.  Then I almost bought another copy of the original LP with OBI, but I resisted that moment of insanity!  

Fail ;) ....

its okay- it aint like a CROWN record dawg....

I don't know about that. I have found many Prestige pressings from the mid-60s, like the one you're talking about, that look absolutely terrible. Some of them have been practically new and still look terrible. "Orange peel" and bubbles in the vinyl are quite common for these pressings.

Yeah, got the LP last year after having missed out on it a couple of times (was going on the CD for ages). Distant Voices is a very special and quite listenable album. There's nothing else like it. Obis are very cool, especially on Japanese record jackets that were designed around their presence, but I can live without them if need be.

Yup obis are nice but I decided long ago I'm not going to drive myself nuts looking for them.  Had the same scenario with Lacy's "the wire" - had an opportunity some years ago to buy another copy with the OBI but at some point you gotta put a lid on the madness...at least a little bit ;)

Ik weet niet over dat. Ik heb veel Prestige persingen gevonden van het midden van de jaren '60, zoals je het over hebt, dat absoluut verschrikkelijk uitzien. Sommigen van hen zijn nagenoeg nieuw geweest en nog steeds ziet er verschrikkelijk uit. "Sinaasappelhuid" en bubbels in het vinyl zijn heel gebruikelijk dat deze persingen.

I know what you mean, I`ve a lot ( to much ) of these copies.

IMHO, at a to high temperature pressed records. All have a iritating surface hiss.

I bought recently a record flattener, wich heat the record (in a long time) up to 60 degrees Celcius and in the same time down to under 30 degres Celcius.

The level of hiss goes down, but not enough for me.

It`s hard to say but: straight to the bin with these crapp sounding albums.

Finally passed on test pressings of Air Time.

2017 will be the 50th birthday of nessa records. Something like 30 hours of music in 50 years - yeah!

Anyway, this will be one of our celebratory reissues - there will be some new music too.

I've been enjoying my 78s so much that I've kept my turntable set up for those shellac discs for nearly a month now. I changed over to the LP setup today, and it's like discovering vinyl all over again. Tonight, so far:

Circle - Paris Concert (ECM). An old friend.

Jimmy Giuffre - 7 Pieces (Verve mono). Great music, but really softly mastered.

Sleepy Time Gal (Center). This excellent album of traditional New Orleans jazz has no leader or band name listed. It has been reissued in Jim Robinson's name, but it's really, in essence, The December Band, Volume 3. (Does that mean anything to anyone here? I'm probably speaking another language.) Anyway, it was recorded at the same 1965 concert which produced the two December Band albums on Jazz Crusade and GHB. Kid Thomas Valentine and Capt. John Handy are on board.

The Soul of Jazz (World Wide). A strange one, which I forgot I had - I came across it while thumbing through my LPs. There's no leader listed, but it seems to be organized by arranger Billy Ver Planck - and it's listed under his name in Michel Ruppli's Savoy discography. World Wide was apparently Savoy's early stereo subsidiary, lasting for about 20 albums.

The music is mostly self-conscious soul/gospel jazz, with corny heads and heavy backbeats. Four originals are credited to "Davis," whom I assume to be Ver Planck. But I enjoyed this immensely tonight, because the soloists are excellent. Joe Wilder, Bill Harris, Pepper Adams, and especially Bobby Jaspar and Eddie Costa are in great form. And George Duvivier's bass lines are worth a listen on their own.
