"Pure Pleasure has remastered one of my desert island discs – my favorite Armstrong recording and one that shows him at his best musically and sonically…How does this new release stack up against the original maroon label Columbia vinyl? Almost from the moment that the stylus first touched down, I heard subtle and not so subtle details that I had never noticed before, and I have listened to this recording in various incarnations hundreds of times. Add to that fact that the harmonic texture is captured spot on, and this new re-issue is an instant candidate for my Record of the Year…don't miss it!" Recording = 10/10; Music = 10/10 – Dennis D. Davis, Hi-Fi+, Issue 45
