Very disappointed. The mix seems to be OK, but the record is full of pops all around. Surface noise is obvious in “Behind the Wheel”, right channel [read some other comments below]. I decided not to return this copy to the store and keep it, to show people how a brand new record of a considered “deluxe” edition can have such a bad quality. SHAME ON Warner-Sire-Mute-Reprise-Rhino records.

My copy has intermittent pops & surface noise throughout the right channel on side 1. I'm not talking extreme noise that would enrage you, just little pops that appear every so often.

And there's a small amount of sibilance too. I'm not too sure if I just got a dodgy copy or not.

It's nowhere near enough to make me return it to the shop though. It would be a shame to destroy it.

EDIT 15 MINUTES AFTER THE ABOVE WAS WRITTEN:

No, wait. This is not acceptable. Just put on side 2, and there's ANNOYING surface noise throughout Behind The Wheel (right channel again).

Sorry, this is going back to the shop. NOT ACCEPTABLE.

EDIT 1 DAY AFTER THE ABOVE:

Ok, so I took it back and got another copy.

The exact same issues! Warning issued. This pressing is SUSPECT.
