If you don’t have the original in your collection and you’re a Getz fan, as I am, this reissue is a must-have. Why hasn’t anyone reissued his wonderful “Focus” album  - Sound 4/5 AudiophileAudition
Pure Pleasure is coming to us so late in the game, but I happen to have the original Columbia vinyl and they sound absolutely alike.  Dixon Van Winkle was the recording engineer and he did a bang-up job. Chick Corea leads the band behind Getz, along with this Return to Forever electric bassist Stanley Clarke.  The easily-identifiable Getz sound on tenor sax is wet and mellow, his primary influence having been the great Lester Young. This album has a remarkable organic sound, opening with his big hit “La Fiesta.” The album’s title tune is the fourth selection, coming at the end of Side A of the disc. The sax has a warm and lyrical tone that I bet isn’t equalled on the CD version, though I didn’t have that at hand for a comparison.
I impressive 180g vinyl recording by Stan Getz contains seven tunes such as "Lush Life" and "Five Hundred Miles High".
A remarkable aspect of Stan Getzs' masterpiece of 1972 is the resistant organic sound of the album. The band that accompanies the Getz in these recordings for Columbia, consists of Chick Corea, bassist Stanley Clarke e-(who also plays in Corea's band Return To Forever), drummer Tony Williams and Brazilian percussion master Airto. With the exception of Clarke all had played with Miles Davis in the then experimental electric bands. Corea's style in "Return To Forever" was just about to leave his base of the fusion sounds, Wiliams played with John McLaughlin and Larry Young had together with "Lifetime" just the culmination of his time with Miles Davis. But that should not detract from the fact that we are dealing here with an album by Stan Getz.
His outstanding play on the tenor saxophone shows this. Alive and liquid he plays the difficult variations in its mix of Latin Carnival Corea sings in "La Fiesta" and he skilfully takes the form of change in the changing of keys in "Five Hundred Miles High". The foundation of the music of "Return to Forever" came from Stan Getzs' extensive complex harmonies and consistent dedication to musical improvisation. Billy Strayhorn's "Lush Life" is the space in which Stan Getz, the band on the dynamics, the overall sound and the ambient atmosphere leads zoom - Clarke and he leads them to emphasize his bass with the bow.
These musicians combine the restlessness of electric jazz with Getz supported by firm principles that have led to modern jazz to its size. From the speakers to flow into each recording voltage and mutual respect. This is especially true for the created in the Latin style piece "Captain Marvel", the most beautiful recording Getz made in the 1970's.

Pure Pleasure Records
The Restoration of the Art of Sound
180g Vinyl Mastered From The Best Available Sources

At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records. During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s – or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.

A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.

We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production. To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

There really is nothing quite like it.  It’s the touch, the feel, you have to stop and stare, the cover,  the real thing, even the smell.

Its tangible, you can feel it, see it, study it,   muse/dream over it, it’s real, someone  has spent hours and hours over its construction and presentation. Pure Pleasure Records is just that, Pure Pleasure and that is what it has set out to be.  

The music and the physical record.  Something to keep, treasure, admire and above all enjoy.Of course with vinyl it’s not just a record, it’s the cover,  the sleeve notes, you are  holding a unique package, produced by craftsmen.
