John Coltrane - Lush Life (Small Batch, One-Step Pressing)
John Coltrane’s iconic 1961 album, Lush Life is the first release in our Small Batch series — a carefully curated one-step process vinyl collection that is devoted to creating the highest quality reissues of legendary recordings from our vast catalog.
For this reissue, the original analog tapes were sent to mastering engineer Bernie Grundman, who utilized a custom tube pre-amp and analog mixing console with discrete electronics—both made in-house—as well as a Scully solid-state lathe with custom electronics. Grundman’s lacquers were then sent to Record Technology Incorporated (RTI) for plating using the plant’s one-step process where the lacquers are used to create a “convert” that becomes the record stamper. Utilizing Neotech’s VR900 compound, Lush Life was then pressed on to 180-gram vinyl.
Each pressing is individually numbered and housed in a foil-stamped, linen-wrapped slipcase featuring an acrylic inset of the original artwork. The vinyl disc is housed in a reproduction of the original album jacket, complete with tip-on jacket, and protected by an archival-quality, anti-static, non-scratching inner sleeve. New liner notes from liner notes from GRAMMY®-winning music historian, Ashley Kahn accompanies the title.
Please note, due to the limited nature of this pressing there is a per customer limit of one copy. Product is excluded from discount code offers.
