- Two great sounding Double Plus (A++) sides – big, tubey, balanced and above all, natural, on quiet vinyl too
- With engineering by the legendary Phil Ramone, this is an exceptionally well-recorded album, as this pressing makes clear
- The brass is great on both sides, rich and full with the right amount of bite, not to mention lively and DYNAMIC
- “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again,” and “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?” are great songs that solidify Bacharach as a master of quirk.” – Allmusic
If you’re a fan of the Casino Royale soundtrack, you should definitely check out this crazy album. The best material on here is loads of fun, and when you get a great copy like this one the sound is WONDERFUL. The brass sounds lively on both sides of this copy, rich and full with the right amount of bite. The overall sound is surprisingly DYNAMIC!
This pressing is Tubey Magical — what A&M pressing from 1970 wouldn’t be? — but also highly resolving of subtle musical information, the kind you notice when you play a pile of copies one after another. Listen to the orchestra on Do You Know The Way To San Jose — you can really hear the sound of the rosiny bows being pulled across the strings. (more…)
