Few things are better than when one of history's truly, inarguably all-time-great albums comes to life like never before on a spectacular LP edition that simply makes the music live and breathe, as if it's being created in the moment. This is one of those pressings. And when it comes to jazz, nothing surpasses Time Out.

All music lovers have likely heard the Dave Brubeck Quartet, even if they've never realized it. The collective's smash hit "Take Five" has graced the soundtracks of multiple films, including Mighty Aphrodite, Pleasantville, and Constantine, and remains famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody—as well as its use of unusual 5/4 time. Here's the rare jazz track that became a pop hit.

It's just one of the reasons why Time Out is a jazz and audiophile classic. The 1959 landmark belongs in every record collection. But none more so than this Analogue Productions version, a reference-caliber sonic spectacular cut at 45RPM on 200-gram premium vinyl,and pressed at Quality Record Pressings.

With the program material now spread over four sides of vinyl, reducing distortion and high-frequency loss, and wider-spaced grooves to let stereo cartridges track more accurately, we guarantee you've never heard the pianist's nonpareil blend of cool and West Coast jazz emerge with such depth, detail, dimensionality, and liveliness. In addition, for the first time in its history, Time Out comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold jacket featuring eight fantastic black-and-white images shot during the recording session at Columbia's famous 30th Street Studios.

Moreover, the heavy-duty jacket is produced by Stoughton Printing and claims a printed wrap mounted to a heavyweight chipboard shell in order to produce an authentic old-school look and feel. Never has the effort's iconic cover art looked so vibrant. About that picture: Record-label sales executives didn't want a painting on the cover, according to Brubeck. And an entire album of originals? That wouldn't work either, he was told. Fortunately, Brubeck ignored conventional wisdom and Time Out became a watershed release. Brubeck proved creative jazz and popular success can go together.

Within weeks of release, Time Out peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard pop albums chart and was certified platinum. "Take Five" became a mainstream hit, reaching No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 5 on the Easy Listening survey, the precursor to today's Adult Contemporary charts.

Sales aside, Brubeck and Co.'s playing, and the cerebral compositions within, continue to make Time Out one of the most beloved albums of the past century, genre aside. You owe it to yourself to hear it in the best analog fidelity possible. You owe it to yourself to get this pressing.
