No these don't sound vinyl, the sound like there were taken from the master tapes, but yeah they are a little hissy. Before the era of Dolby. I've noticed some of the records I have actually have more master tape hiss than record surface noise.

So I have a not-so-great-condition vinyl copy of this. Should I cough up the 10 bucks for the version you suggested? I really like this album, BTW. I guess I just answered my own question!

I have a pretty good copy, but sonically not at good as the Flair REcords copy, so I bought it, and also a couple of the "More" and "Even MOre" albums too. I would also say buy just to help promote iTunes released more of this vintage exotica.

I listened to the samples of Kapu, and although they are little hissy, they are still WAY better than the vinyl I have. Crown Records is notorious for sh*tty vinyl--even a pristine Crown record sounds like crap, but they are still worth seeking out because a lot of good stuff got released on that label. Darrell Brogdon of the Retro Cocktail Hour calls it his "favorite fly-by-night record label."

It looks like iTunes also has "Jazz Heat Bongo Beat" which is another great Crown release, as well as Buddy Collette and Don Ralke's "Bongo Madness" (although inexplicably the track listing for "Bongo Madness" is exactly the same as "Jazz Heat Bongo Beat" yet they are two distinctly different records.)
