John Coltrane ‎– Stardust, 1963 LP mono rip

Japanese reissue of 1984, thin, flexible and light LP with convex sides, such a pity. The tracks were recorded on Prestige in 1957-58, a collection of ballads was published in 1963 and sounded accordingly cool in the original. The Japanese certainly did their best, but they only got technical Hi-Fi. The Jazz, scrubbed and combed, was dejected, but not dead — Coltrane is in good shape, and so are his sidemen. I wish I could listen to the original though.
