West Meets East
I don't mean to overstate my review but I probably will anyway: I found my whole experience with this recording and pressing to be Sublime! See MoreThe Virtuosic technique and sensitive emotional playing surpass expectations. As well as the choice of compositions and their playing order lend the listening experience to hypnotic and spiritual...however not in the sense of drifting off into an undifferentiated ambient revere... the kind of playing which I am trying to describe here involves and expresses the deepest and most profound connections of musician to instrument and instruments to compositions, resulting in a true human expression ... and it's easier said than done.
P.S. This lovely sealed copy included a paper and plastic inner sleeve which has kept the flawless pressing in perfect condition!! and this is from 1966!! It casts a remarkable shadow over the extensive reissues with their fancy gram weights and neato packaging...before all this money is wasted on bells and whistles the musicians should make sure their recording is Properly Pressed first!! lol
