"Kevin Gray's new 45RPM mastering of John Coltrane's masterpiece A Love Supreme is an absolute 'must-buy'! I know what many are thinking...hey, I have the one Kevin did for Speakers Corner a few years ago, or if they're very, very lucky they might have an original orange label pressing on Impulse. Hopeless collector that I am, I have both. Folks, I'm here to tell you that Kevin's 45RPM remaster of this wondrous Coltrane session is the deepest, clearest view into the session that took place December 9th, 1964 at Rudy Van Gelder's Englewood Cliff's studio that ever existed. Sure, there are other ways to hear the music recorded that day, but none will literally transport you back in time to witness the living, breathing essence of the music this quartet recorded that day quite like these two 45RPM records. If you love this music like I do, you absolutely OWE it to yourself to buy this album." - Joe Harley

This 45 RPM pressing brings you closer than ever to Van Gelder's studio in 1964, when Coltrane and his Quartet created magic. And that's something that every serious fan of this recording will want to have. Highly Recommended Myvinyl

Right from the very first hearing, absolutely every single jazz critic shared the same opinion - whether trained musicians or not, true or would-be jazz expert: "A Love Supreme" is John Coltrane's most important recording. And the rave reviews which appeared in the magazines Downbeat, Jazz Hot, Jazz Podium and Swingjournal reflected this: critics all over the world, in America, Europe and Japan recognized that Coltrane's deep religious belief had influenced both his approach to life and his music-making.

It not only enabled him to express himself with great intensity but also lent him the necessary inner peace to conceive a work of almost 40 minutes in length and to lead his quartet along the same path as himself. "Two important things happened to Coltrane in 1957: The saxophonist left Miles Davis' employ to join Thelonious Monk's band and hit new heights in extended, ecstatic soloing. Coltrane also kicked heroin addiction, a vital step in a religious awakening that climaxed with this legendary album-long hymn of praise. The indelible four-note theme of the first movement,

"Acknowledgment," is the humble foundation of the suite. But Coltrane's majestic, often violent blowing (famously described as "sheets of sound") is never self-aggrandizing. Aloft with his classic quartet (pianist McCoy Tyner, bassist Jimmy Garrison, drummer Elvin Jones), Coltrane soars with nothing but gratitude and joy. You can't help but go with him." - www.rollingstone.com The first section, entitled "Acknowledgement", has a forceful bass line which runs throughout the whole work.

The powerful sound increases in intensity, whereby the bass motif undergoes constant modulation, with John Coltrane's meditative singing creating immense tension. In "Resolution" Coltrane's powerful, quasi hymn-like expression comes to the fore, with McCoy Tyner achieving equal intensity in his solo. "Pursuance", with its density, quick-as-lightning runs and block chords, gives us a taste of John Coltrane's later 'free' phase. "Psalm" is filled with the famous, almost static melodies rather like a fervent prayer which are so typical for John Coltrane.

"A Love Supreme" has been a faithful companion and teacher of generations of saxophonists and its message goes way beyond Music and is still valid today.

"...As with the first six titles in this series, Analogue Productions went out of its way to make sure they reproduced the cover correctly. The beautifully laminated gatefold is made of heavy cardstock...For those who have listened to this record a lot over the years, this 45 RPM mastering is going to hit you over the head - and hard. From Elvin Jones' opening gong, to the final crescendo of Psalm, this 45 RPM pressing of A Love Supreme, is delivered with a degree of detail, and most of all dynamic range, that I haven't heard on any other version - vinyl or CD, of this album." 45 RPM Reissue of the Year - MyvinylReview
