Recently, while perusing the What Are You Spinning thread, I came across the Cannonball Adderley album Know What I Mean? I checked it out on Tidal and really loved what I heard. I’m just getting back into vinyl, so I decided to buy the LP. Not being very informed, I bought a Wax Time copy on Discogs. Boy, was that a mistake. The condition was mislabeled, and the SQ was terrible. The noise floor was up in the roof :)
I’ve since learned that Wax Time is a European label and they exploit EU copyright laws to re-release records–and that many are from CDs since they don’t have the original masters.
All this is to say, can any of you expert vinyl heads recommend a good version for me to pick up. I really want to hear a clean version of this recording. Thanks so much!
p.s. another reason to include the name of the artist and album in text, not just a photo: I couldn’t search to find where the album was mentioned in the very long thread. Words are searchable, but images are not.
