Had the album in the 1960's needless to say that was trashed due to excessive playing and not having decent equipment in those days and the process of dust cleaning of the needle by rubbing your finger across the needle while the speakers were on,to remove the dust, which was the norm in those days. I shudder as I reminisce of those days. I purchased this recording in DSD64 and as to be expected of HDTT team it was a superb & pristine transfer and I will continue to enjoy this recording as long as I have ears.
A great example of mid-sixties latin jazz (if you're old enough to remember it). Really clean sound from a well-preserved tape - better than my record-playing system at that time! I downloaded the 192k PCM version.
