Today i posted a response to the thread started by Claus about our favorite audiophile labels. (Nice idea, Claus!) The label i mentioned, First Impression Music, sells a multichannel SACD pressing of "Jazz at the Pawnshop". Some people are of the opinion that this album is quite remarkable. I've never heard it. What's so special about this thing? Is it an essential? The description on the First Impression Music site says: "This album, recorded in 1976, has been regarded as 'The Best Jazz Recording of the Century'"! That's high praise. I'm not eager to spend $60 for a two-CD set of this thing knowing nothing about it, but i would like to hear the opinions of those who've heard this record. Oh, if $60 is too much, they do have an XRCD pressing for $50.
