Duke at Tanglewood features the legendary bandleader playing live with Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops at Tanglewood in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts, a 3-track recording from 1965. Ellington is in top form and the live sound is excellent, includes bonus 180gram version of the LP; both discs are packaged together [the 200gram in picture sleeve, 180gram in plain sleeve].
This is a 200 gram weight (!) high-quality and super quiet LP pressing from Classic Records as part of their 'Quiex-SVP' series. In contrast to many CD and LP releases that are mastered from fifth or sixth generation copies, Classic used the original master tapes and cut the album using their all analog and tube amplified mastering process; allowing every conceivable detail and nuance from the original recording to be translated to this pressing. The result is arguably the best sounding release of this album ever available, easily surpassing standard CD and LP pressings. As usual, Classic Records have lovingly presented the album in a deluxe package featuring a high quality thick original artwork sleeve and LP labels.
