Sounds brilliant. I have detected no flaws in the sound, don't have a original to compare to.

Just found this in the shelves, had forgotten I bought this in the used section of my local record store. Such a great pressing! And so well done sleeve I almost (almost...!) thought I had actually bought a first pressing. Highly recommended!

My assumption is that this is a repress of the cut by Rhino in 2011, mastered by CB. I think the catalog was WS-1893. Can anyone confirm that or know something different?

Sakes alive this is a good sounding record! The Artisan stamp is a trademark of quality.

I haven't heard every pressing available of this album... but I have a hard time believing there is a better version than this pressing. Amazing is an understatement.

Quite possibly the best pressing along with the first CSM issues (I have not compared to the various Mofi reissues but this beats the Rhino reissue hands down). Mastered at Artisan, the sound quality is amazing. Deep bass, tonal balance, excellent mid-range and sweet highs. Absolutely essential classic Dead!

Anyone else notice the misprint on the disc? I saw it on my own too.

This pressing sounds great, I recommend it if you want a clean/new copy.
