John Coltrane is by far my favorite Jazz artist. A Love Supreme is one of my favorite abums

Papa Burgundy says:

Still probably digital transfers 🙁
Do you know where this was pressed?

Mark Williams says:

hey do you have any funkadelic

dixielandfarm says:

Any album once its mastered is put on 1/4″ tape – so basically ANY record you have is from a 1/4″ tape… but I get what you mean. Very exciting that this was found and you told the story/history of it wonderfully, Eric.

Ronnie Roddy Jr. says:

Was the recording of impressions the original take to what we know now from his later album with impressions we know

Mark Williams says:

Thanks for this: good to hear some opinions on this new release.

P.S. Having recently re-watched “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” it’s dawned on me that you look like a young Chris Isaak!

Kacper Uminski says:

It’s a shame that it’s not in stereo…

vinyl City 2 says:

I have no jazz record’s, need to change that! Have almost every genre , except jazz and hip hop! Hip Hop is not going to happen with me, but I’m open to jazz!

Monarky says:

You are so underrated! Please keep the videos coming, you help me battle aniexty.

Mike Roeder says:

Nice job! Such an exciting discovery and Impulse! did a great job with this release. I posted about this release on my blog and I include details about how Impulse! came to get those tapes from the family. Also, the liner notes include writing from Sonny Rollins, who was on Impulse! around the same time as Coltrane.

Ceazs Hernandez says:

Thank you for this! This serves as a great companion to the Complete Quartet Recordings. Great sound.

Great video ! Just remember that the 1/4 inch tape was the format of choice for The Beatles and most bands of the 60’s. (Not a bad format at all).
