Excellent reissue from VMP. I never thought to add this to my collection, but I'm very happy VMP put this one out.

Wow. This is a stunning release! Never expected this from Herbie. I love VMP for these kind of albums, ones you wouldn’t necessarily go for or may have heard about. Then it’s a stunner.
The quality is great on this. Sound crystal clear.

Another great VMP Classics pressing. Super quiet and AAA remaster makes for a dynamic reissue. Sounds amazing, really punchy and all those cheesy synths sounds pop. Grab a copy if only for Jaco’s bad ass bass on 4am.
