John Coltrane's masterpiece "A Love Supreme" was recorded in a single session on Deceber 9th 1964 and was released in January 1965.  This copy was purchased just a few days after it's UK release and has been loving cared for by the original owner until we bought his collection a last year.

The sound quality is fantastic with all the rich warm tones associated with UK mono pressings of this period.
