"The packaging and sound are first-rate. So well done is this LP that if Pure Pleasure didn’t put the obligatory identifying line on the bottom of the rear cover you might think you had somehow stumbled onto a mint original. The sound is mint as well. Annie Ross’s voice is front and center, full-bodied and realistic. Mulligan’s baritone sax comes off well, sounding full, deep and reedy. Bass is firm, strong and deep, and there’s good snap to the drums." - John Crossett, Soundstage.com
 
Singer Annie Ross' first solo album after joining Lambert, Hendricks & Ross finds her at the peak of her powers. Ross is joined by two versions of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet with either Chet Baker or Art Farmer on trumpet, Bill Crow or Henry Grimes on bass, and drummer Dave Bailey. Annie Ross is at her best (and most appealing) on "I've Grown Accustomed to Your Face," "Give Me the Simple Life," "How About You," and "The Lady's in Love With You," but all 14 selections are quite rewarding and her interplay with baritonist Mulligan is consistently memorable.
 
"Much like Rosemary Clooney, Annie Ross did not rely on vocal gymnastics. Instead she relied on an inborn understanding of how to get inside each song and make it her own, and she had the voice of an angel. Here, she relies on material taken from the Great American Songbook and uses vocal inflection, the beat, and her talent in setting up a verse to make this such an enjoyable album. Listen to the way she sings "Give Me the Simple Life" with Mulligan, Farmer, Crow and Bailey, or "It Don’t Mean a Thing" with Mulligan, Baker, Grimes and Bailey, for two superb examples of the synergy between singer and band." - John Crossett, Soundstage.com

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.
