  John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
John Coltrane's A Love Supreme is one of the most compelling, spiritual testimonies in the history of jazz.
A Love Supreme has long been overdue for a sonic upgrade -- previous CD versions have been plagued with drop-outs and assorted glitches -- and this two-disc package serves the masterwork well.
Easily one of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing that at once compiled all of his innovations from his past, spoke of his current deep spirituality, and also gave a glimpse into the next two and a half years (sadly, those would be his last).

 Black Issues Book Review: A Love Supreme: Real-Life Stories of Black Love. - Review - book review
What Love Supreme does most effectively is demonstrate that love can sprout in the unlikeliest of circumstances--in a homeless shelter, in a drug treatment program, or a doctor's office--and that any thriving love relationship has to find some way to survive conflict if it's to have any staying power.

According to Fenway Recordings' Website, "Although The Love Scene's music is tinged with the sounds of Buffalo Springfield, The Faces and The Rolling Stones, the strong influences of the '60s and '70s combine with musical stylings of contemporary artists such as Wilco and Ryan Adams to create a cohesive sound that makes quite an impact."
Many bands would love to be compared to that echelon of music that's received massive critical appraisal and plenty of fan approval.
