The Complete Art Pepper At Ronnie Scott's Club London June 1980

Holy cow!!  The best recorded material I have ever heard, on any format, of any genre,  anywhere.

After listening to a few of these, I think I can honestly and objectively say they are the BEST mastered and pressed records I have ever heard, period.  This Ray Staff guy is a mastering genius!

No kidding.  The dynamics and detail are amazing and there is an element of ‘depth’ here that I’ve never heard this dramatically before.  I’m not sure I have the words to accurately describe this.

They transport you in space and time and put you in the front row at this club.  It's unbelievable.

Seriously!  I can’t think of a single recording I own that touches these.  Simply magical.

Get it while you can, because I'm told there won't be any more.  You can order directly from PurePleasure here...

Super dope purveyors of all things audiophile.  They actually care more about your listening experience than they do about making a sale.  Solid gold in my book.  Talk to Kat if you can.  She's the Bomb-dot-com!

Drop Me a Line

If you like something you see here, have additional insight, or are just bored and lonely listening to great recordings but not able to share it with anyone, drop me a line.  There are far too few people out there who get into this stuff to such a disturbing degree.  We need to keep in touch!
