"Further evidence that PP&M made wonderful-sounding albums, this stunner from 1967 is primarily unplugged and/or lean, lending itself to near-revelatory spatial and tonal qualities. But then this trio always created intimate recordings, and audiophiles who adore harmonies can rank this with Everly Brothers' LPs in their ability to mesh the vocals. This set delivered two smash hits in 'Leaving On A Jet Plane,' in classic folkie style, and the atypical 'I Dig Rock And Roll Music,' with its delightful pastiches of The Mamas & The Papas, Donovan and The Beatles. This album is safe-as-houses, with no surprises, but with the warmth of your favourite scarf." — Sound Quality = 93% Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News, October 2016
This is a phenomenal reissue of a significant album for the famed folk rock trio. Album 1700, released in 1967, yielded the group's final hit single (and only No. 1), "Leaving on a Jet Plane." It also yielded graceful folk-rock trappings for their repertoire of originals and covers by, among others, Bob Dylan and Eric Anderson, writes David Wolf for Amazon.com.
This is the deluxe Analogue Productions Hybrid SACD treatment. An expert remastering by Kevin Gray of Cohearent Audio. Expertly recreated jacket artwork. A masterpiece.
