Many of you may think it unfair of me to rate this fine music strickly on the terms of Impulse's poor manufacturing techniques but here goes anyway! The CD is made of wafer thin plastic which cracks very easily and even more so because they mount it on a super thick and hard plastic spindle that simply wont let go of the CD until it cracks. Way to go Impulse!

I had a copy of Love Supreme, of course, but the availability of a live version of the suite made this impossible to pass up. I was not disappointed, and had a real Kairos moment hearing the first few bars in concert. Get Ashley Kahn's wonderful book on the making of Love Supreme and be inspired.Was this review helpful?

I PURCHASED BOTH THE REGULAR VERSION OF LOVE SUPREME, AND FOUND IT TIMELESS, THIS DELUXE EDITION IS FOR THE PEOPLE THAT THE REGULAR EDITION LEFT THEM WANTING MORE. IT IS AWESOME! THE WRITTEN LITERATURE GIVES SO MUCH INSIGHT OF THE EVENTS LEADING TO HIS GREATEST WORK. IT IS THE LOGICAL LOVE SUPREME FOR PEOPLE THAT LOVE COLTRANE'S WORK. I DO NOT RECOMMEND OTHER WORKS AFTER THIS ONE WHEN HE DISASSEMBLED HIS CLASSIC BAND. BUT THERE MAY BE OTHERS WHO WOULD. BUT OVERALL, JOHN IS STILL AS PRECIOUS TODAY AS IN 1965 WHEN HE RELEASED THIS GEM OF A RECORDING. THE SOUND IS SUPERB FOR SUCH AN OLD RECORDING. WITH COLTRANE YOU CAN BUY FROM 1965 BACK AND WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED IN MOST CASES, FROM 1966 MAKE SURE IT IS WHAT YOU HOPE FOR, LISTENING BEFORE BUYING IS RECOMMENDED.Was this review helpful?
