I just picked a copy of "Songs from the heart". Even though it says "remastered" on the cover but still the recording sounds crappy compared to Coltrane/Hartman.
Perhaps, the lesser known label is to blame?
Try The Voice That Is on Impulse as well as I Just Dropped By to Say Hello.
I too have been disappointed in Bethlehem remasters of Hartman's
work. Perhaps you have an earlier version (before, say, 1998).
No, it's the latest 2000 version and it still sounds crap. Most of the album is in mono that sounds dry and with a lot of tape hiss. Just terrible. I wish I haven't bought this CD!
