John Coltrane: 1960 Duesseldorf      (4 of 6 found this review helpful)
  Review by Steveoboogie July 25, 2015

Titles like this always scare me. When DVD-Audio's first came out there were a series of live ones put out and they were horrible. Actually worse then that.

  Review by analogue July 22, 2015
