Pure Analogue Audiophile Mastering by Ray Staff at Air Mastering

AAA 100% Analogue - Limited Edition - Pressed at Pallas 

However to get the full-on experience of hearing an ace electric blues axeman in audiophile acoustics, the PurePleasure LP is the way to go for Taylor’s American audience with turntables - AudiophileAudition

Guitarist Melvin Taylor's fluid, smartly constructed solos and understated yet winning vocals are surprises on this 1984 nine-track set recorded for Isabel. Taylor is not a fancy or arresting singer but succeeds through his simple, effective delivery of lyrics, slight inflections, and vocal nuances. 
 
His guitar work is impressive, with skittering riffs, shifting runs, and dashing solos. Organist/pianist Lucky Peterson is an excellent second soloist, adding cute background phrases at times, then stepping forward and challenging or buttressing Taylor's playing with his own dazzling lines.
