Enjoy the complete recordings of John Coltrane’s historic and hotly contested live performances at the Village Vanguard on the nights of 1-2 November 1961. This historic LP was not only Coltrane’s first live album (and his first recording to feature the complete line-up of his now legendary quartet featuring McCoy Tyner, Elvin Jones and Jimmy Garrison), but it was also, at the time, one of the most criticized residencies in the history of jazz. In November 1961, these performances (also featuring Eric Dolphy) represented jazz music’s supreme cutting edge—with Coltrane beginning to experiment with Eastern music, represented in numbers like India and instruments like the oud—but it was one that critics were largely unwilling to embrace. In fact, they began filling newspapers with vehement anti-Coltrane sentiment, and some even went so far as to call him downfall of jazz!

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.


Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
