just got this one yesterday from Acoustic Sounds, and just openned it and started listening. i've only listened to side 1 of 4 so far......but wow and double wow! this is one really sweet listen.

i've had the 45rpm single disc with 3 cuts from Classic Records for 8-9 years, so i knew how good this recording was, but my favorite cuts were not on that teaser. especially 'Everybody Plays the Fool' which has been a reference cut for me on redbook for over 10 years. i've listened to the openning 30 seconds on that cut maybe 1000 times testing gear. but hearing it on the 45 i realize i've never really 'heard' it before.

i also love 'Somewhere, Somebody', which is just an amazing cut.

anyway; even if you are not a huge Aaron Neville fan (hard to believe but maybe someone) you gotta get this record.

quiet surfaces, huge soundstage, great bass and detail, great vocals, sweet tone.

i'm now almost finished with side 2, and this record has it all. every instrument is full and well recorded. the background vocals are distinct and powerful.

i do also have the Classic Records 33 rpm pressing, which while good, is not close to the 45 in terms of energy, detail and realism. the 45 comes alive and soars.

nothing wrong with the 33 at all. it's not noisey or opaque or anything. but this recording is good enough to get the full benefit of the 45 treatment.

I heard "Everybody Plays the Fool" in Mike's room a couple of years ago and was impressed enough to buy the CD and started hunting down copies of the vinyl.

Here's one with good production values, and it's also very reasonable for a 20-year old first pressing. It's a promo with 4 different mixes of Everybody Plays the Fool (including the original LP version). AFAIK the ones coming from UK and US are the same.

Just in case you're a crazy collector who buys every different pressing.

Just what I didnt want to hear. Looks like I will order the 45 today.

My 45 RPM copy showed up this week and I gave Side A a spin last night. It sounds great and I look forward to hearing the rest of the album.

I can't believe I missed this thread and I have to concur with Mike L that this pressing is just WOW! I bought it around the same he did and play it regularly. It never ceases to bring a smile to my face. One of the best pressings I own and highly recommended.
