Liberty Pressing, stereo.

I will be doing a UK Liberty vs. Tone Poet check this weekend.

I was going to include the French Pathe Marconi version but think I can safely discount that one from the mix. :)

Enjoying this one.

Fair, I can live with it unless I find a rainbow pot, in this case I’ll use the gold for a mono original .

Tone Poet version. Not the ‘in your face’ excitement or sonic saturation of the DG original version but a bit more detail is apparent. Pretty damn good !

@sidewinder

So are you saying I need it in addition to the classic.  I am very interested.  you say a bit more detail is apparent- how do you mean, in regards to the B3 Organ.-\\\\\\\\\\\\ Guitar?  Yea- B3 on rvg record, i mean these records are to the max.

Chewy - point 2: yes. It even sounds a bit better to me than the King Records ‘The Collector’ although a I will have to check on that point. Definitely better than the LT, clearer and with extended range both ends.

point 4: I would definitely give it a try. It is more ‘polite’ than the 47w63rd original but as my original does have a few clicks, the virtues of crisp and clear sound become apparent. My verdict is that it is good to have both. Always nice to have Baby Face on an original !

PS - you definitely also need that Lonnie Smith. :D

Dammit, I forgot I have a King copy of "The Collector". Now I have 3 versions on LP too. I agree that the Tone Poet of "ETC" is much better than the LT LP, as I did a listening comparison when I got. Unfortunately I now add the caveat that my hearing isn't the best days, so take this with a grain of salt, especially if my "winner" ends up have way too much treble, which is what I don't hear as well these days.

I have to say that with the exception of Andrew Hill's "Black Fire" and Lee Morgan's "Cornbread", these Tone Poet LPs sound great. Hill's record has that warbly piano that I just can't get by and the Morgan was not much better than my old Liberty RVG pressing. But the rest, particularly the Kenny Burrell & Lou Donaldson's "Shing-a-Ling", are very good.

I wish they weren't so damn expensive.

And now I have to go get that Lonnie Smith. :)

Yes, the Lonnie Smith sounds really nice. It doesn’t have the vocals but that’s probably good as it helps the ‘flow’.

I will take your advice about ‘Cornbread’. I have that one in NY mono pressing (Liberty era). The only issue with that one, at least on my copy, is the lop-sided guillotine cut used on the cover :rolleyes:. The ‘Black Fire’ I have in NY USA mono and stereo issues so well covered on that one - both sound lovely.

’Mr Shing-a-Ling’ beckons.. Just too bad that the BN shop doesn’t have it.

Also hoping that Joe Harley brings out a 3 LP Lee Morgan ‘Live at the Lighthouse’ per the Hoffman board report/rumour. Or maybe that is wishful thinking ?

Gruppo Di Improvvisazione --------"Nuovo Consonanza"---------(RCA/Schema Records)

 

Slow mo improv compared to earlier SME with which this recording must roughly contemporary. Interesting if not exactly heartwarming stuff. For that I'll stick to AEC.
