Judge the sound quality for yourself against other records. The track is on this mix 20 minutes into the set. Recorded on a Tascam recorder, with Ortofon Nightclub E carts, Technics 1210, and a Pioneer DJM-900NXS2 Nexus mixer.

Oh my God ! What a bad pressing! Which sound engineer mixed it up ...
Anyone know what the original sounds like? I would be interested ...

As other reviewers have stated, The Sibilance level on Side A is off the charts. Isn't this what test pressings are for?

Anybody know if the new 2020 pressing has fixed the problems with the shoddy 2019 RSD release ?

Its unpleasant, the highs sizzle. Very very disappointed. I do not recommend it.

The number one disappointment out of all of my records. Had so anticipated the release also and ordered online w/shipping to canada & all. Amoeba had lost the listed record & then found a copy last minute, was so happy. Listening to this is like nails on a chalkboard. Shame

This is a great record. I heard a DJ in a bar playing it through a Mastersounds mixer, with high quality audiophile carts, through some really nice speakers, and to be honest I didn't notice anything wrong with it at all. I was just enjoying the record. Obviously people have a choice. Either pay a shark a ridiculous amount of money for an original pressing. Listen to it on Youtube or Spotify. Or get the reissue and try to enjoy it. Unless you are a die hard audiophile listening on a really good set up I doubt the reported hiss is going to keep you up at night.

On this occasion, I must sadly concur with (fellow Discographer) REENO - on closer examination of this record, I have found it to be a bit hissy on the toppermost end. I pointed it out to my lovely girlfriend just today, and she agreed with me, then we fooled about in a bubblebath for a bit. It was really really nice, she has beautiful feet!!

This is a FONK-infused BOOGIE monster that will have all of the ladies flocking to the dancefloor, before sending them to frolic and prance in a place of divine and heavenly ecstasy!!

Sound quality and pressing of this one is spot on, nice heavyweight vinyl.
