I love these 2 Blue Note albums reissued by King Record personally for a reason.
Hank Mobley Featuring Donald Byrd and Lee Morgan BLP 1540
Bennie Green Soul Stirrin' BLP 1599
Hank Mobley Featuring Donald Byrd and Lee Morgan BLP 1540 is a great and unique album with 2 trumpeters who are the legends playing together.
And this particular King Record reissue K18P series has superb pressing quality as well as sound quality.
The other, Bennie Green Soul Stirrin' is the same with superb pressing and sound quality. In addition,
this is the ONLY available MONO reissue here in Japan.
Toshiba EMI in the later years reisued the same title but they used the STEREO master.
I also love how King Record restored the original Blue Note Blue White label in detail.
The fonts, the color...everything is really precise. Toshiba did try but King did far much better.
Now Toshiba EMI BST Series in the early 90's.
You see the difference?
