I know that this has not be mastered from the original tapes. However, this sounds on par with the original to me. Not sure what they cleaned up in the mastering process but Superior Viaduct impressed me with this one. Very nice gatefold as well.

This isn't one of my favorite Alice records, it's middle of the road for me. That said buying an original for $60+ has never been worth it, personally. This is an excellent option if you purely value to the music, but lack the desire to own an OG pressing (since they are a bit harder to come by). Solid recommendation, especially if you're just getting into her music and you want some more accessible options that aren't super expensive.

How does this reissue sounds? Good or not compare to originals?
