Now sold out on VMP. Amazing record, i have an excellent stereo original and this sounds better. Love these AAA QRP pressed records VMP are doing.

Regarding the comments on harsh highs etc, bear in mind that as this is a mono recording it should ideally be played with a mono cartridge. I'm sure these problems that some are experiencing would be resolved by installing one.

This sounds pretty good, everything well balanced, good bottom end and good separation. Quiet vinyl, nice thick sleeve. However it was let down by the final track on side 2, I Can't See Myself Leaving You. For some reason the vocal has been mixed at an extremely low volume, so it’s basically drowned out by the music. Very poor show indeed!

Harsh highs are present throughout as if she was recorded "hot" but not overwhelming.

Perfect sounding press. Dead silent and the mastering is pretty good considering it was a mono recording.

Such a nice repressing, and my version is so clearly pressed that when I close my eyes, it is almost as if Aretha is in my living room, singing just for me. My mam likes it too, as it is good, and wholesome music. She does think they (VMP) should have corrected Aretha’s eyes on the front cover though, to make it so that Aretha is looking directly at the listener, rather than off to one side. My mam is quite old-fashioned like that, she thinks eye contact is so important and that is why she will not let me play with my phone, when she is talking to me!!

I can attest to modestbrants comments regarding harsh highs however keep in mind that the source is original mono recordings.
The pressing is a great representation of original mono versions and I think it sounds excellent. In saying that I have a 1969 copy of Athretha's gold with some light marks and I donno why but Athretha's voice to me is richer on that version..

I'm a little let down. It sounds pretty good but certain songs that I thought would benefit from having the original tapes didn't seem to have improved.
"Say a little prayer" for example, still has background noise and harsh highs.
It kind of bugs me because VMP should be pumping our crystal clear recordings like they have been doing. If you can find a minty version of this you might as well go that route, unless mono is your thing.

Now to the positives, it doesn't sound awful. I was A/Bing it with a copy from Google play and they sounded identical.
The packaging is also spectacular.

This mono pressing sounds great upon first listen. I rarely keep multiple copies of the same record, but I think I'll keep my OG stereo version and this mono one too.
