Reviews:

"Pure Pleasure Records has done a superb job in re-mastering The In Sound to 180-gram vinyl. The stereo separation is potent. With good headphones, the listener can appreciate the higher fidelity of mid-60’s recording." Robbie Gerson, Audiophile Audition

"This is one of Eddie Harris' great records. The playing is inspired! What a band! Cedar Walton (piano) and Billy Higgins (drums), Lee Morgan's favorite rhythm section. The underrated but popular tenor saxophonist introduces his 'Freedom Jazz Dance,' which would become a jazz standard after featuring on Miles Davis' album Miles Smiles. Plays one of the earlier versions of 'The Shadow of Your Smile,' romps on 'Love for Sale' and 'S Wonderful,' and also performs 'Born to Be Blue' and his own 'Cryin' Blues.' Harris is heard in prime form in a quartet/quintet with pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Billy Higgins, and part-time trumpeter Ray Codrington. A gem." — AllMusic

"For many years now, the UK-based Pure Pleasure label has been been serving the vinyl lovers' community with it's 100 per cent analogue reissues of classic albums. The material in the rich and varied PP catalogue runs the gamut from jazz and blues to folk, from pop to classical, taking in everyone from Bobby Gentry through to Freddie Hubbard, and Phil Ranelin to Laura Nyro.The new version of Eddie Harris '1966 breakout album is no exception - the vinyl is quiet and flat, and Ray Staff at Air Mastering in London has done a superb job with the original tapes, producing an LP that more than holds its own against a first-press Atlantic copy and which projects the musicians into your listening room with the appropriate warmth and detail.The sleeve and detail. The sleeve is produced accurately (although the Atlanic logo is replaced by Pure Pleasure's) , complete with Leonard Father's original liner notes; and although there's no barcode, there are no flipbacks either - but these are minor quibbles. As ever , the Pure Pleasure crew has done a fantastic job,And what of the music? Well, if you don't know this record, yo should make every effort to get ecquainted. Despite the dip in quality of his later output, the Harris of the mid 1960s is firing on all cylinders, backed by a hard bobbin' group (Cedarr Walton's piano interventions are especially outstanding). Old warhorses such as `S'Wonderful', `Love For Sale' and ` The Shadow Of Your Smile' and given a viggorous new coat of paint, combining Tin Pan Alley sophistication with muscular 1960s energy. But it's Harris' nblues wailing ' tenor style, features a wonderfully wonky theme -a variation on a blues in F -and splendid drumming from the industrious Higgin. The latter, of course, has become something of a standard, ever since Miles Davis covered in on Miles Smiles , listening to Harris` original, one can see its appeal for other musicians - this is the sound of the future long, long before said future ever happened; its also catchy , energetic and repetitive in the best possible way (it's a straightahead, elegantly funky groove in B flat) , and - i'm not a musician myself myself , so I'm relying on what musicians tell me -is great fun to play once you've mastered it. But `Freedom Jazz Dance' , as well as the rest of The In Sound , is also great fun to listen to as well, whether you're a player or not." Kevin Whitlock, Jazzwise Magazine Review August 2020
