Disappointed with this release. Not much in the way of clicks and pops after a wet cleaning, but the tape hiss is pretty bad. The mastering also seriously lacks low end, had to crank my bass EQ to listen to this. I need to start researching reissues before I buy them.

The label on mine is 9098-2007, but the runout instead of what's listed above has
9098-2007-S1
9098-2007-S2 2 (last 2 has a circle around it)

Very happy with this pressing as well as the other Ace Records Funkadelic pressings. Keep away from 4 Men With Beards!!

Casual fans looking to add this classic to their collection at a reasonable price will be satisified. Hardened collectors and audiophiles should avoid this.

First, the pros: the vinyl is super quiet with a low noise floor; bass response is very good, and artwork is faithfully replicated on the sleeve and labels. Now the cons: the sound quality is passable at best, can be described as fuzzy - perhaps this was how the original LP sounded? I also heard some noticeable noise reduction on the title track. I also wish they made this a gatefold, like the original.

This had been on my wishlist for a while. So far I only found the pressing by "4 Men with Beards" which I have admittedly not heard directly, but I had read enough about it's alleged poor quality that I refrained from trying it out for myself. This version was given to me by a friend as a surprise, and I am happy to say it is one of my better sounding reissue records. I do have some records in which are muffled or come with pops, crack, hisses or a combination of those and I do not have any of those issues with this record at all. The highs are vibrant and gripping, the lows are clear and decisive and none of it overpowers the mids. Very pleased with this record, which also looks
a killer!

Is this a gatefold like the original or just a regular sleeve?

Got a copy yesterday. Clean, very few pops or clicks and no sign of non-fill anywhere (believe me I know what this sounds like). Nice and flat piece of vinyl. Music sounds great, not crystal clear or anything, but then again this is from 1971 so there has likely been some tape degradation over the years and who knows which stampers were used. I recommend this pressing for sure and the peach colour is like a marbled peach. Awesome and much better presentation than anything I have seen 2 men with beards achieve.

What's the story on this edition? The Bar code is missing. Only a white box where it should be. is this unofficial or some promo version of the 1989 version?

My copy sounds fantastic! I need to compare it to the original I have but I picked up this version for cheap and I'm not disappointed at all.
