This is one of the best recordings I own. Sonically, it's like listening to something in surround sound... produced years before surround sound actually existed. I really couldn't recommend this highly enough.

Sorry guys, but do anyone know of a version of this release in a marbled red vinyl? Someone's trying to sell that to me and I'm afraid it might be a bootleg. Cheers.

Good remaster, but the sound is not perfect. Kind of muffled i think. Nothing special.

Mine copy plays with crackles especially on b-side, while there is a loud pop on the best track of the record ''I Talk To The Wind'', and i bought it new sealed today, and looks also mint. All the new sealed vinyls i am buying the last years are like this. No quality control anymore in vinyl industry. Otherwise the mastering of the record is OK, but the sound is extremely low.
I suggest everyone to buy old pressings of the records, if they can find it in logical prices. The VG+ of the past is better than Mint (sealed) of nowadays.

Works for me. At least as good as the original in terms of listening pleasure anyway. Can't go wrong at the price, just wish it had that lovely textured heavyweight gatefold jacket too.

Beautiful copy, nice and thick record. One thing though, the mastering seems to use CD mastered sources. There are a lot of 22.1khz shelfs, but there are certain instruments that get layered in that are full frequency recordings.
