I think the 2021 sounds very musical, the intro piano and trumpet tonality sounds great, more than the 1964 or 1973 which is surprising. They all sound good but I think I prefer the 2021, Without listening I would have gone for the 1964 edition. Edit I need to listen more carefully
You will hate me for this - but each one starts with distracting pops, crackles or a deep grumbling noise which of course I just don’t get in the Qobuz version I listen to. It’s been so long since I listened to vinyl I’d forgotten about it. I know it is part of the experience, and there are many other compensations, but now I just find it odd and bothersome to have that noise that wasn’t there when the music was being performed. Sorry!
It is pretty annoying to have play noise from new LPs, not just little bit of hiss, but audible pops. Many times those pops go away once ultrasonic cleaned. On my system, different cartridges and different phono preamp produce different amounts of vinyl playing noise. For example, phono stage in Plinius M16P preamp makes bigger play noise than MAGI phonomenal. Also, AT150mlx produces more play noise than Denon DL303 on my system. So, if you are sensitive to those vinyl play noise, you can look into different cartridge and phono preamp options. However, to enjoy vinyl, you need to accept a certain level of play noise.
I think the first edition of The Horace Silver Song For My Father sounds best. I bought mine on eBay. But the needle was jumped on the first track. So, the seller refunded me. Yes I just listened
RIKKI DON'T LOSE THAT NUMBER on YouTube - nice song.
