      I'm totally on the same page as Fremer on this review. I bought my Doxy copy of Out of the Cool via im Ricketts of tmh-audio. My first impression upon opening the album was how the hell did they do a single sided 45 rpm reissue? Then I put the album on the table and couldn't help but notice that the Doxy reissue was really hard sounding; I attributed that to the DMM process. But things only got worse from there. Sadly, I have a lot of the Alto releases but never purchased the Gil Evans.

      And BTW, I think Gil Evans is a genius and love his recordings and arrangements!

        With the sound of some of the digital remastered reissue vinyl the majors are putting out, some of them could almost be seen as bootleggers.

          Regardless of the recording chain provenance, one issue may be invisible and that's the quality of the vinyl itself used in a pressing run. There are only so many sources for vinyl pellets - the last time I looked they weren't increasing in number - and 'interim pressers' may have to take whatever blend is on the market at any given time.
