5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Vinyl Release., Nov. 15 2011
I'm certainly not one of those people who claim that "everything sounds better on vinyl, just because it's vinyl". I have been disappointed on several occasions upon receiving reissued and/or remastered versions of some of my favourite albums. Everything from poor sound quality to extreme surface noise to awful quality control (when you're spending upwards of $25, I wouldn't expect to receive records with scuffs, scratches and the center hole not completely punched through). That being said, I wouldn't give out a five star rating too easily.
So I love Pink Floyd and when this album became available, I held my breath and ordered it. I'm glad I did. It's awesome in every respect. Sound quality, quality control and the packaging are all superb. Most other manufacturers could learn a few things from this exceptional release. If you like Floyd, get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Own Jazz Record, Nov. 15 2011
This record is a must have for any Jazz fan. Perhaps not as well known as the greats like Davis and Coltrane to some casual jazz listeners. Admittedly I overlooked this album until a friend lent me his cd copy. I was hooked! Ordered the LP and it's seen some heavy rotation on my turntable ever since it arrived. The quality of the music is great. The recording quality (considering is a 1959 recording) is exceptional. Finally the quality of the vinyl pressing and cover is also top notch. Very pleased!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product. Less Mess., Nov. 15 2011
I bought this after I broke my last (traditional style) garlic press. After stumbling across this rocker here on Amazon, I realized what the problem is with most of these presses. This idea just makes perfect sense. No moving parts and nothing really to break. Super-simple to clean. It gives more of a minced texture than a mush but that's what I prefer. I don't think I'd ever go back to a regular garlic press.
