This means digging in stores and trolling eBay, but also luxuriating in the flood of high-quality reissue pressings coming from a number of audiophile labels, headed by US mainstays Mobile Fidelity, Friday Music, Sundazed, Audio Fidelity, and Analogue Productions. No track runs longer than , and, significantly, Tina wrote every number except a brassy cover of the Beatles' "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.
The sound of this session has always been muddy and muted, but some notable sonic recoveries are preserved on this pressing: less low-end rumble, and a crisper high end, with such previously unheard details as a shaker in "You Better Think of Something. If you were alone, just the opening bars made you want to kiss your own knee! Bailey's showpiece, "Reasons," and the album's bouncy opening track, "Shining Star," added to the power of this realization of Maurice White's all-encompassing musical vision.
Reissues don't get much lusher than the glossy gatefold jacket, beautifully reproduced lyrics sheet, and quiet surfaces of the gm vinyl of this edition of an album that has always sounded spectacular, thanks to the learned ears of original engineer George Massenburg. Here Hiatt finally had success as a performer of his own songs.
New reissue pressings continue to reach ever-higher levels of quality and detail. Richard Martin, prod. TT: This companion to Tim Brooks's book of virtually the same title exposes a musical era that has been almost forgotten, perhaps because it was rife with racial stereotypes.
Of the double album's four sections, one focuses primarily on the first black recording artist, the whistling and laughing singer George W. Johnson, while another includes classical music and earnest speeches. A third section consists mainly of lively ragtime and blues tunes played by once-renowned figures such as Wilbur Sweatman, Ford Dabney, and James Reese Europe.
Bob Koester, prod. What might seem on first hearing to be a random assortment of weird noises gradually reveals itself as a set of carefully ordered compositions and logical improvisations.
The title track of the original LP, named for its unorthodox instrumental timbres, was spliced together from two takes, both of which are included on this CD. Comparing the two performances, the structure becomes clear, and one can easily distinguish the elegiac theme, played at a glacial tempo, from the squealing, squawking, chattering, whinnying solos, which remain thoughtful and expressive even at their most abstract. Phish, prods. TT: My editor is going to kill me for writing again about Phish in R2D4, but my reason for discussing Lawn Boy is much less about the album's soul-ascending jams or heavy-metal screams and much more about this remastering, released on gm LP on April 21, It includes a bevy of blown-up and very goofy unreleased press pictures, lyrics in big yellow type, and, most important, a spectacular remastering of the music by Chris Bellman, of Bernie Grundman Mastering.
Page McConnell's piano sparkles with his light touch. Trey Anastasio's feedback has an extra bit of gnarl. The blackness between the grooves in the breakdown of "Reba" is 10' deep. Now, I feel as if I'm starting all over. TT: A gathering of virtuosi can often result in a barrage of wanking that will drive away any listener interested in the art of expression.

A solid collection of work that speaks plainly for itself, not dressed up in a big production. Joe Pass had a generous and kind style and was willing to share his knowlege about breaking down session charts, professionalism and technique with aspiring players. He would encourage beginners to have an ending to each tune, play in another key, even G, instead of E or A.
A humble and sincere man, a master player. Each well placed note is clear and unadorned, an album to learn and grow from even if it isn't quite the ending to one's guitar trek. I wish that the version of this album that I purchased for streaming would be as good as some of the 'tube videos, a shame that legitimate purchases lack quality.
If you have another way to get this album, it's probalby worth going that way instead of the MP3. Five stars for nearly any work from the late, great Joe Pass. I didn't care for the mastering as it comes through on the MP3, so one star off, but Joe Pass lives beyond his time. I was lucky enough to meet him and share the stage with him at a three day master class at my university. He is the shizzle. No one does it better.

Looking back from , All About Jazz described the album as "the recording to announce that Joe Pass had arrived", and said that he had "accomplished, using standard guitar performance techniques, to play lead melody lines, chords, and bass rhythm simultaneously and at tempo, giving the listener the impression that multiple guitars were being played".
He occasionally concentrates more on the melody for the pensive "'Round Midnight" or the fleet "All the Things You Are," but meets any challenge during a masterful remake of "The Song Is You.
