Performance:   Sonics:
I don't know that it gets any better than this. Absolutely NO comparison to the HDTracks version (which was veiled and dry sounding).

Very accurate tonal rendering and a nice high end. Plus, the bass is tight and accurate. What really impresses, though, is the lucid rendering of depth in this recording.

Performance:   Sonics:
I would add to the previous review that this the first instance in which it becomes obvious to the careful listener that the tape used to make this recording is beginning to show evidence of wear and tear  especially in the right channel and particularly on several of the tunes that would have constituted side two in the vinyl days.

I am not so certain that I find the intentional widening of the stereo channels to have Astrüd's voice coming from very far left as it does on this recording alone, but there's no denying that there's a palpability to it that is certainly quite enjoyable. In the digital realm, there is no denying that this is the best available reissue out there.
