Noisy as hell. I wonder if all the ones Bong Load mysteriously had back up for sale after being unavailable for a while were ones people sent back.

My copy was pretty noisey, anyone else have this issue?

I've owned two other versions - the red and blue plain edition and the back to black repress - and this is easily best of the three, despite the slight surface noise. Also the artwork is loads sharper - I guess all reissues have relied on scans of the original up to now, but the difference is night and day - compare the back covers. You can't even tell Elliott's wearing an earring on the plain and geffen reissues!

This sounds great! A tad noisy at parts, but overall for a colored 1LP for an album this long, it sounds pretty awesome.

My copy is just a single LP, not a double. I don't think they offered a double.
