i have about 1500 records and this might be in the top 5 best sounding. It's incredible.

My copy of this pressing sounds absolutely sublime. The spindle hole is marginally too big, giving me a bit of flutter in places but the quality of sound is unbeatable.

This thing is liquid black and clear. So much so that you can hear the tape/air in the room. Highly recommend!!!

Does anyone else's copy of this suffer from the dreaded crackle?
