I highly recommend springing for the deluxe edition. NorwegianWood65 , Jul 17, Location: East of the Sun and West of the Moon Richard the one in Texas , Jul 17, Location: Deep Maryland. Like Elvis Presley , JB is best appreciated with comps. Both were singles artists who didn't give albums much thought except as market fodder. If you must have the albums as originally issued, be forewarned that most are now only available new as expensive Japanese imports. And as you hinted in your original post, lotsa JB albums are more or less studio versions of his live revue, including instrumentals, ballads, and other styles not normally associated with JB.
Keep in mind the expanded second volume is not the original issue. Of course, the unedited track was not originally released on LP, either. Roland Stone , Jul 17, Location: Montreal. Hell is not JB's best album, but it's my favorite.
Joel , Jul 18, Location: New York City. I'm actually listening to the Soul On Top album now, which was record he made with a big band in The clash of his screaming vocal with all that brass is quite But it's a lot of fun.
Mike B , Jul 18, Peterson could play just about anything, and he has with him two superlative musicians in tasteful, chunky bassist Ray Brown and the crisp and even drumming of Ed Thigpen The uptempo numbers swing like hell, Oscar playing with clarity and endless invention.
He could do a slow tune to break your heart, and, happily, there are quite a few here among all the high spirits. Try "I Got It Bad" - beautiful! There are times - eg. A classic recording. A brilliant classic. Just one blemish: Ellington's Night Train the title track was originally released as two sides of a 7" 45rpm remember those?
So the performance comes to an artificial halt half-way through for you to turn the record over - and to make side A a stand-alone for radio broadcasting , before picking up again on side B.
Why the two halves were not properly edited together for the CD beats me. Simple to have done, stupid not to have done. One person found this helpful. I love this album. I listened to Oscar when i was a child, my dad was always playing it and countless other jazz records and it reminds me of good times. Setting aside nostalgia this makes me realise just how talented Oscar Peterson is, hes one of very few pianists that still gives me the shivers.
I can truely relate to this recording and i shall look out for more classic Peterson Trio recordings in the future. There isnt a dud in this collection, its a true classic worthy of 10 stars at least and I hope you love it as much I do. This is a wonderful example of the Oscar Peterson music I wanted in my collection. There are so many CD's to choose from that I deliberated for a long time over which one I should buy. I'm very happy with Night Train but I may have done better to opt for one of the double CD collections, as my only negative on this CD is that it is a bit short.
This is perfect for either OP or all piano jazz fans. It is excellent. Your OP collection would be incomplete without it. Here They Come! Nice comp. I'd make a few minor changes Night Train love their version instead of Doggone. I Hear a Voice instead of Mo'reen. Our Candidate a great song instead of Get It On.
Very nice. And The Raiders in mono IS the way to go. ManFromCouv , Dec 18, Location: St. Location: Lexington, Massachusetts. Location: Asbury Park. I was only a casual Raiders fan, up until about a month ago, when Beyond The Beat Generation started playing Mo'reen, for some strange reason, quite a few times over the course of a couple of weeks.

Zephaniah OHora recommends:. His new record is Q-u-a-l-i-t-y Zephaniah OHora go to album. Zephaniah OHora go to album.Although this is a greatly crafted album, production wise, it lacks the depth and consistency of the previous debut (Self Titled) album. The songs are very complex and rich in texture and rhythm, but beside "Night Train" non of the tracks caught my attention. I think that for the majority of Efdemin fans this album is a disappointment.
