  • Ellington Yale Concert Lp

    Just finished listening to Duke Ellington's "Yale Concert" LP recorded in 1968 and its fantastic. My copy is on the Sweet Thunder reissue label Edition 12. The horns sound damn near like a D2D. Very enjoyable listening and highly recommended (big band jazz standards).

    The Fantasy 1st press of Yale Concert is excellent. I once had all of the sweet thunder 1/2 speed pressings and don't recall they were particularly special, I guess I should hear it again. I still find them in used bins for under ten bucks

      This is the only Sweet Thunder I have so I cant speak for the quality of the series, nor do I have an original of Yale Concert but this sounds pretty "sweet".
