    I purchased a copy of Tapete Records reissue of Roger Nichols and the Small Circle of Friends on 180 gram vinyl. The liner notes do not state if the recording was made from the original tapes or a remastered digital copy. The Tapete reissue vinyl is dead quiet and is quite detailed with respect to the voices and instruments. The reissue provides sounds I have not heard on prior CD releases. I do not have a copy of the original LP release to compare the two.

    I would be interested on hearing anyone else's comments on the Tapete Records reissue.
  2. That's good news, but since I personally have an original LP, not to mention a bunch of CD reissues, I'd likely pass.

    I would imagine others will be VERY interested in this. Can you provide a link?

    $42 shipped from Amazon--I'll wait to seek out a much less expensive choice. I have an original pressing purchased as a sealed copy and yes, it is more detailed beyond any CD version I've ever heard.

    I would guess this import is digitally sourced, especially since we have no idea if the original tapes perished in the big Universal fire from a few years ago. Too many import products are made from digital (even CD) sources, so I'm not all that thrilled until I learn if it was made from actual analog tapes. That would make it worth the price being asked.
