Well, I'm listening to it right now! The 'magazine' is really just an 11 inch square leaflet, but that's okay. If it was a full magazine, I probably wouldn't keep it for long, but this pops into the LP sleeve as extended liner notes. A subtle positive is that the barcode is on the packaging, not the LP sleeve, so you get a nice authentic look to the whole thing. The inner sleeve has an anti-static liner too. As the Fast Show's John Thompson would say, "nice!"
A really quiet and clean pressing which, according to the sleeve, is the 2008 Blue Note reissue. I emailed Michael Fremer of the AnalogPlanet website in the USA about it and he was pretty gobsmacked that a partwork magazine was bringing 180g Jazz LPs out and they were selling in British supermarkets and corner shops.
So I uploaded a ripped track to DropBox for him, so he can hear and judge for himself, albeit a file created with far inferior hardware than he has at his disposal.
The music - well the only track I really knew well before this purchase was 'Blue Train' itself, but the rest of the album is wonderful too! Currently on 'I'm Old Fashioned' and loving it.
Glad your enjoying it, I was really surprised at the quality of the pressing too. I'm a member of a couple of vinyl collecting groups on Facebook and our friends from across the pond are spitting feathers it's not available over there.
I'm just dipping my toes into jazz so theses releases are perfect for me.
