Sealed 2012 Limited Edition 200gm 45rpm 2LP Audiophile Pressing Of One Of Ella's Greatest. This Has A 3" Spine Split. Hence Price. “Back In The 1990s Original Verve Pressings Of This Record Were Hot Items Pushed Into Prominence In Great Part By Write-Ups In The Absolute Sound, Particularly By My Friend Frank Doris. I Found A Few, And Even A Few In Pretty Good Condition But None Of Them Begin To Compare To This Double 45 Rpm Set That Offers More Of Everything, Particularly Transparency And Instrumental Separation. Ella Lives Again Centered Between The Speakers With The Backing Group Pushed Hard Left And Right. Pianist Levy And Guitarist Ellis Share The Left Channel And The Drums And Bass The Right Channel. On The Pleasingly Warm/Murky Original, As My System Improved, Distinguishing And Separating Out The Guitar And Piano Got Easier. Here The Two Instruments Occupying Similar Timbal Territory Are Much Easier To Distinguish Though Again, The Better Your System, Particularly Your Analog Front End, The More Easily The Guitar And Piano Will Be Heard As Separate Instruments. Ella's On A Microphone With A Slightly Rising High End But If It Sounds Icy, Don't Blame The Recording Or The Mastering. It's Your System. If It's Well-Balanced And Your Cartridge Is A Good Tracker, The Vocal Transparency And Clarity Are Spooky And The Sibilant Articulation Is Precise. These Double 45s Cut At Sterling Sound Use The Original Tapes, Not Copies Of The Original Tapes And The Clarity And Transparency Coupled With QRP's Drop Dead Silent Pressings Are Remarkable. The Original Pre-MGM Buyout LP Has A Pleasingly Nostalgic Quality And The Added Warmth Produces A Bit More Room Sound, But In My Opinion It Can't Compare To This Reissue Unless You Like Hear Things Through Rose-Tinted Loudspeakers.“ – Michael Fremer, Analog Planet
