I have 4-5 versions, ranging from the original Columbia 6-eye mono that I bought when I was a teenager to several of the re-issues, including one of the 45-rpm versions. My point would be that ultimately the quality of any re-issue must be limited by the quality of the source material used to make it and that once I owned a really audiophile worthy pressing or two or three, I, for one, do not feel the need for another. It's only my opinion, and I don't disagree or disapprove of collecting KOB re-issues, or especially if you are a newbie to jazz or audio. One could do worse with money. I guess another point in the back of my mind is that you can hear the "greatness" in the music without fancy equipment or a boutique LP copy.
which is your favorite?
because I haven't thought about it. Certainly the 45rpm version is very good. But I often choose not to play it, because I don't want to be jumping up to change sides nearly twice as often as normal. I have a British Columbia pressing ("CBS" is I think the British version of Columbia), and it's also very good, quiet. I also have a Columbia 2-eye that's excellent.
