  • Bill Evans - Riverside Recordings

    I'm thinking about ordering Bill Evans Riverside Recordings new 200G vinyl collection. The collection is quite good from a music perspecitive. Any feedback on the audio quality of this project?

      If it's another run of the 45 rpm box set released in 2012..they are sublime sounding. It does not get any better.

        Not sure. My guess...the same metal parts. They (Acoustic Sounds) make it sound like this is a new release. I bought mine in Feb 2012.

        I'll have to agree. I have the 2012 45 RPM set. Amazing recording...I have original pressings on many of these titles. This 45 rpm set is that good...

        I am seriously thinking about the Evans Box set as well however 45 rpm records drive me nuts. Up and Down...Up and Down...Up and Down

        I really wish they would do more great material like this at 33.3

          I dislike 45 rpm releases for the same reason, too many side changes.

          Get both like I do. So when are lazy can play the 33 rpm and when want the finest in sound put on the 45 rpm.

          I have the QRP Bill Evans box set. All 22 discs, 11 albums are gems. It took me a few days to play all of them and surprising to me I really enjoyed all of them. Quality of the pressings are awesome. Well worth the money. As far as 45 rpm while I do have to get up more often I have not noticed any weight loss. It is just not that big a deal to me and I do appreciate the sound. If you like Bill Evans you will enjoy and not regret the purchase (IMHO).
