    Just received it and listening to it right now. This is the last word for me on this iconic album. Never has Mile's every breath been so vividly captured. The orchestra has the weight that all other versions lack. Gorgeous thick rich sound. I have many pressings, absolutely none capture the essence of the recording as well as this pressing.

    Is this an LP or the SACD? I love the SACD but I don't know if I'd qualify it as being better than the original LP (or even a few reissues).

    TommyTunes, have you been able to compare it to the RSD mono LP?

    Listening to the LP now and have to agree with Tom. The best I have heard. Quite ahead of the very good Classic as well. Better than RSD version although that is mono.

    Highest recommendation.

    I've been happy with my Classic Records 200g release but I'm going to have to get this one. MFSL has really been on a roll of late with many outstanding releases.

    There's a few Miles reissue threads that should cover this. I can't recall reading a bad review on the mofi lp. I've been contemplating it because my 6-eye is a bit noisy and there's a lot of quiet parts on the recording.
