Indigos (24K HDCD-encoded Gold CD)

They say:

"Few, if any, international audiophile jazz recordings have maintained the kind of deep and profound influence over techniques and even entire label repretoire as Three Blind Mice’s TBM6. TBM23, and TBM30. The of-the-moment realism of Yoshihiko Kannari’s recordings and production aesthetic of producer and label head Takeshi “Tee” Fujii have been the benchmark to match. It is to their immense credit that “Blow Up,” “Midnight Sugar,” and “Misty” have yet to be matched, even 40 years later.

Impex, who as Cisco Music has had a long association with Tee and Three Blind Mice, has finally made available these seminal recordings on our state-of-the-art 24K, HDCD-encoded Gold CD for this first time ever. Kevin Gray’s careful, unobtrusive mastering provides a near-analog like listening experience while you explore the deluxe book packaging with original photographs from the TBM archives and a new set of essays from NPR’s “Rhythm Planet” host Tom Schnabel. We’ve given our all to both the Three Blind Mice 45rpm Box and these Gold CDs. Giving less for productions with these legacies would be a legendary mistake

24K GOLD COMPACT DISC CONTAINS THE COMPLETE ORIGINAL STEREO ALBUM PLUS EIGHT BONUS TRACKS, INCLUDING ALTERNATE TAKES, A TRACK FROM THE MONAURAL ALBUM AND UNRELEASED RECORDINGS.

ALL TRACKS REMASTERED FROM THE ANALOG MASTER TAPES:

ORIGINAL STEREO TRACKS BY KEVIN GRAY, MONAURAL BONUS TRACKS BY MARK WILDER, DELUXE HARD COVER BOOK PACKAGE WITH BOOKLET CONTAINING ARCHIVAL PHOTOGRAPHS AND NOTE"
