Daughter of a Tapehead: John Coltrane

John Coltrane
Ascension
Impulse!
Reissued: 2.2016
Originally released: 2.1966 (as "Edition I" — A-95)

















* Actual question.

** Actual opinion.

So, the reissue sounds great.  My copy is mislabeled, however, so Side B is actually Side A, which I guess is sort of fitting since the whole "Edition I"/"Edition II" thing still requires a bit of brain matter to keep straight.  Interestingly, it's easier to find structural cohesion on the vinyl edition than I was ever able to find on the 2000 CD issue, which contains both versions.



Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
