This domestic Verve T-Label original pressing absolutely knocked me out! I've played a bunch of these over the years and I always enjoy the music, but this copy had the kind of sound that elevated the album to a new plane for me. The detail, texture, transparency, and clarity here go well beyond what I've heard on other pressings. I'm a firm believer that every good collection should have at least one great Astrud Gilberto record in there, and this one would make for an excellent choice. The vinyl plays well with just a touch of light background noise under the music at times, nothing that gets in the way. 

Vinyl: VG+ (very clean)
Cover: VG+ (strong)
Play notes: Excellent sound and the vinyl plays well
