I picked up a copy of this CD at an HMV for about $5. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed to find that the level of tape hiss present in the recording makes it very difficult to focus on the beautiful music itself.

Did I get the wrong release of this album? Is there a more recent reissue or remaster that is a big improvement? What about the SACD or HDTracks version?

I'm sure I've heard a truly greatsounding recording of the Coltrane and Hartman version of "My One and Only Love" on the digital cable Jazz channel. It must've come from this album right?

I've got a compilation - Coltrane for Lovers, or some such nonsense - that includes a good quality version of that song. I mean, I don't know that I've ever listened to it at reference volume, but at moderate volume or nearfield, I don't notice any hiss at all.

Wasn't the next CD in that series Ella Fitzgerald Says Always Put the Seat Down After You Pee?

Thanks guys! Any thoughts on one of the Coltrane SACD's would also be appreciated. Is there merit in a multi-channel version?

How about Louis Armstrong's lesser known release: 'Don't Eat Yellow Snow'?

I've got "Blue Train" from HDTracks and it sounds very good; they also have (I believe) the album you're looking for: John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman.
