I bought this album when it first came out in 1976 and thought at the time what a change of direction this was to the superb "Hissing of Summer Lawns". Over the years I grew to regard it as one of Joni's finest works as it features the late Jaco Pastorius on bass on some of the tracks. I was lucky enough to see Jaco live. He is probably my favourite bass player whose own first album is a masterpiece.
So I bought this again on 180gm vinyl and the quality of the re-pressing brings out the sound in a new vibrant way. I always buy analogue recordings on 180gm vinyl now as CD just doesn't seem to ever do analogue product justice.
If you haven't heard it before, it may take some plays to really shine, but then you will want to play it again and again, as I do.
