In 1987, jazz immortal Oscar Peterson led his quartet -- featuring Joe PassDave Young and Martin Drew -- through the final engagement of their 14-concert European fall tour at Helsinki’s famed Kulttuuritalo. A Time for Love captures Peterson’s focus on performing original compositions on the bandstand alongside timeless classics at the pinnacle of the group’s creative stride.


Before the large-scale production of a vinyl record, a scarce number of copies are pressed to test the quality and fine-tune any audio that may need to be adjusted. Once this process is approved, Mack Avenue makes an extremely limited quantity of these test pressings available to the general public. Packaged in a simple white jacket featuring a signature from the artist (when available), these collectible test pressings are available in extremely limited quantities. Bring home a rare version of your favorite album today!

Tips for listening to your test pressing:

Step 1: Clean the record.
Step 2: Play the record all the way through with the volume at zero. 
Step 3: Clean your cartridge stylus.
Step 4: Turn up the volume and ENJOY!
