White Hot Stamper

John Coltrane
A Love Supreme

  (Item #: coltrloves_1910_12) 

Our Price: $549.99

  • With two Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sides, this is a truly killer early stereo pressing - exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Here's the explosive improvisational energy that made the album such a revelation in 1964 - copies of A Love Supreme that sound as good as this one are rare indeed
  • 5 stars: "Trane's classic quartet of Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison stepped into the studio and created one of the most thought-provoking, concise, and technically pleasing albums of their bountiful relationship (not to mention his best-selling to date)... It is almost impossible to imagine a world without A Love Supreme having been made, and it is equally impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it."

White Hot Stamper

McCoy Tyner
Plays Ellington

  (Item #: tynerplays_1912) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • KILLER sound throughout for this Shootout Winning copy with both sides earning Triple Plus (A+++) grades for sound
  • With a lively and present piano, clarity, space and timbral accuracy, this is guaranteed to be one of the best sounding jazz records you've heard
  • Credit goes to Rudy Van Gelder once again for the huge space this superbly well-recorded ensemble occupies (the ensemble being a piano trio with two percussionists, but it works!)
  • 4 stars: "An interesting project that works quite well... This is an excellent outing that displays both Tyner's debt to the jazz tradition and his increasingly original style."

White Hot Stamper

Stanley Turrentine
Rough 'N Tumble

  (Item #: turrerough_1910_01) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • With two Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sides, we guarantee you've never heard this kind of life and energy on any other Stanley Turrentine album
  • It's rare for us to find New York label stereo pressings in audiophile playing condition, but here's one, and it simply takes the recording (and the music) to another level
  • This session boasts all the top players: Blue Mitchell, Pepper Adams, McCoy Tyner, Grant Green, Bob Cranshaw, and Mickey Roker and more
  • "...the star of the show is Turrentine, and his warmth and playing make this a necessity, especially for fans '60s pre-funk Blue Note jazz."

Super Hot Stamper

John Coltrane
My Favorite Things

  (Item #: coltrmyfav_1907) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • You'll find outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on this 1961 Coltrane classic - exceptionally QUIET vinyl too
  • There is more richness, fullness and presence on this pressing than other copies offer, and that's especially true for whatever godawful Heavy Vinyl pressing is currently being foisted on an unsuspecting public
  • With McCoy Tyner on piano, Steve Davis on bass and Elvin Jones on the drums, this is a group that can do no wrong with standards of this caliber
  • 5 stars: "The unforced, practically casual soloing styles of the assembled quartet allow for tastefully executed passages a la the Miles Davis Quintet, a trait Coltrane no doubt honed during his tenure in that band. Each track of this album is a joy to revisit."

Super Hot Stamper

John Coltrane
Sun Ship

  (Item #: coltrsunsh_1910) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Coltrane's final album finally arrives on the site with outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER throughout - fairly quiet vinyl too
  • Huge space, size and clarity, with Tubey Magical richness befitting the 1965 recording date of this session at RCA studios
  • Released posthumously, this superb release captures one of the last recording dates for the Classic Quartet: drummer Elvin Jones, pianist McCoy Tyner, and bassist Jimmy Garrison
  • 4 stars: "While a summation for this quartet, Sun Ship is also an exciting if unfinished prelude to Coltrane's final period of transformation."

  • 4 stars: "An interesting project that works quite well... This is an excellent outing that displays both Tyner's debt to the jazz tradition and his increasingly original style."

Nearly White Hot Stamper

Art Blakey Quartet
A Jazz Message

  (Item #: blakejazzm_1907_10) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • This original Impulse stereo pressing has stunning nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound from start to finish, nearly as good as our Shootout Winner
  • These sides show off Rudy Van Gelder's engineering chops to full effect - they're big, full-bodied and lively, with good studio space around all the players
  • "Art Blakey took time off from his busy schedule to participate in this quartet session with saxophonist Sonny Stitt, pianist McCoy Tyner and bassist Art Davis. Although this session was under Blakey's leadership, Stitt (on both tenor and alto) emerges as the main soloist, playing his trademark bebop lines with creativity and typical enthusiasm."

Super Hot Stamper

John Coltrane
Coltrane Jazz

  (Item #: coltrcoltrane_jazz_1908) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • A superb sounding copy of Coltrane's brilliant sixth studio album, with solid Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish
  • This pressing captures the classic Coltrane sound that Tom Dowd and Phil Iehle achieved in the studio in 1961, with plenty of the Tubey Magic that makes a vintage jazz album like this one such a special listening experience
  • It's the rare pressing that isn't mediocre if not outright awful - it took us a long time to find the right stampers for this one (and plenty of other Coltrane albums too)
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The first album to hit the shelves after Giant Steps... While not the groundbreaker that Giant Steps was, Coltrane Jazz was a good consolidation of his gains as he prepared to launch into his peak years of the 1960s."

Hot Stamper

Freddie Hubbard
Ready For Freddie

  (Item #: hubbaready_1907) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • With two Hot Stamper sides and fairly quiet vinyl, this copy of Hubbard's classic 1962 release did well in our shootout
  • Forget whatever crappy Heavy Vinyl record they're making - these vintage Blue Note pressings are the only way to fly on Ready For Freddie
  • 5 stars: "Trumpeter Freddie Hubbard really came into his own during this Blue Note session. He is matched with quite an all-star group (tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Art Davis, and drummer Elvin Jones), introduces two of his finest compositions ("Birdlike" and "Crisis"), and is quite lyrical on his ballad feature, "Weaver of Dreams." Hubbard's sidemen all play up to par and this memorable session is highly recommended; it's one of the trumpeter's most rewarding Blue Note albums."

Super Hot Stamper (with issues)

John Coltrane
My Favorite Things

  (Item #: coltrmyfav_1904_1907) 

Our Price: $59.99

  • Excellent Double Plus (A++) sound on both sides of this 1961 Coltrane classic - mostly quiet vinyl too
  • You'll also find dramatically more richness, fullness and presence on this pressing than most copies can offer
  • A very difficult album to find with top quality sound and decent surfaces, but here's one, and we think you're going to love it (if you can put up with some marks on side two)
  • 5 stars: "The unforced, practically casual soloing styles of the assembled quartet allow for tastefully executed passages a la the Miles Davis Quintet, a trait Coltrane no doubt honed during his tenure in that band."

Freddie Hubbard - Ready For Freddie

Reviewed in 2006

  (Item #: hubbaready_2006) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This is a QUIET Blue Note ’70s pressing with wonderful music and pretty good sound. The trumpet here sounds excellent with lots of breath and just the right amount of bite. The track Crisis on side two should particularly appeal to audiophiles -- just check out that well-recorded bass and all the cool little drum breaks.

We hardly ever see clean copies of this album, so we don't imagine we'll ever have the resources to do a proper shootout. I don't imagine that you'll find a much better sounding copy of this album that plays this quietly.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: coltrloves_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

The original Impulse pressings on the brown and orange label are the best, right?

Not in our experience. We think that plays into one of the biggest canards in all of record collecting, that the first pressings are always the best sounding.

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

Reviewed in 2010

  (Item #: coltrloves_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This is an original 1964 Impulse LP in superb condition. This record is ALIVE! When you hear a record like this, you don’t need to play the 180 gram reissue to know that the original KILLS IT. The sound here is right on the money and as good as I've ever heard it.

John Coltrane - Coltrane Plays the Blues

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: coltrplays_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

ONE OF THE VERY BEST COPIES WE'VE EVER HEARD of this phenomenal album! This is PURE GOLD for the jazz-loving audiophile. I can count the number of jazz records we've played this year in a league with this one both sonically and musically on one hand. Both sides here are AMAZINGLY GOOD -- exceptionally rich and full-bodied with superb transparency. Coltrane's sax sounds OUT OF THIS WORLD with the lots of that airy, breathy quaility that we just love here. The immediacy is OFF THE CHARTS!

John Coltrane - Impressions

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: coltrimpre_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

BIG, BOLD JOHN COLTRANE SOUND -- ain't that something?! We had a big stack of pressings to compare and this one just blew us away, earning our top grade of A+++ for the first side and a strong A++ for the second. The clarity and transparency on this copy are mind-boggling, and the immediacy puts early '60s Coltrane blowing his brains out right there in your listening room!

John Coltrane - My Favorite Things

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: coltrmyfav_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

SUPERB SOUND FROM START TO FINISH! We played tons of these in our most recent shootout and both sides here were head and shoulders above the typical copies. Some were a bit squawky and some of them were a bit dull, but this one sounded excellent throughout. We have a tough time finding Hot Stamper pressings of this album -- most copies out there are very disappointing.

John Coltrane - Ole Coltrane

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: coltrole_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Olé! Here's a great copy of a wonderful Coltrane album that we seriously enjoy but just don't see enough to keep in our regular rotation. And that's a shame, because these Top Copies are a THRILL to hear. Both sides give you an exceptionally strong bottom end, and with two bass players contributing on much of the album that is essential for this music. The overall sound is lively, dynamic, and very transparent.

McCoy Tyner - Expansions

Our Shootout Winner from 2013

  (Item #: tynerexpan_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Both sonically and musically, this is THE BEST McCoy Tyner album that we can recall ever playing! Expansions has long been a favorite around here -- it's got a great lineup (including Wayne Shorter and Ron Carter) and the most interesting set of songs that we've heard on a Tyner album.

Drop the needle on the last song, I Thought I'd Let You Know, for the best sound on the album. It's rich and sweet with a BIG bottom end and a wonderful sounding cello. McCoy's playing a lot like Bill Evans at his best on this song.

McCoy Tyner - Extensions

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: tynerexten_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

With Alice Coltrane on harp, this is one trippy album! For those with adventurous tastes you are sure to have an interesting musical experience with this one.

We quite enjoy the sound of a great many Blue Note pressings from the '70s, although to be fair there are plenty of dogs out there too. The reason this LP and others from the era have such transparency and such an extended top end compared with some of RVG's older recordings is due, at least to some degree, to the better cutting equipment he had available to him in the '70s.
