      I played the APUT Janis Ian - Breaking Silence (Reel A & B) over the past few evenings. Just like the APUT of RLJ - It's Like This, it didn't disappoint. In the same vein, It was pretty much what one would expect from a very good tape.

      In the system, the bass was attention grabbing and full sounding while pushing that tone up through the lower midrange. Like the RLJ, the vocals pure/controlled with no sense of edge or unnatural sibilance. Overall, this APUT has a rich timbre and is pretty good sounding tape to boot!

        If Andre says something is "pretty good sounding," take it to the bank it's probably real damn good. And since I have the Janis Ian tape, I can confidently tell you that it is real damn good.

      To finish up my listening session on all six APUT titles, I listened to reels A&B of Ben Webster ( and Tete Montoliu Trio) - Gentle Ben over the past couple days.

      This is a very nice and mellow performance/arrangement of Ben and the supporting Tete Montoliu Trio. Ben's saxophone is the highlight of every track on the album. His horn's dynamics and tone are displayed very well on this tape.

        Ha! I thought Tete Montoliu's playing was the highlight! And the sound of his piano was exemplary.
