Notes:
Those vinyl pressings that come in a fold-out sleeve in the shape of a cross, also come in a regular picture sleeve but there were also pressings that were sold without a fold-out sleeve. If you are about to submit another version which matches a release already in the database, be reasonably certain that it was initially sold without the fold-out cover rather than it having been lost or discarded along the way.

Some of the vinyl pressings have a non-standard arrangement of the sides:
Record 1 - Side A = Side 1 on label
Record 1 - Side B = Side 4 on label
Record 2 - Side A = Side 2 on label
Record 2 - Side B = Side 3 on label

This is intentional and not a mis-press; it is a practice called automatic sequence and was intended for listeners to play through an entire double album using an automatic record changer.

One possible way to differentiate between pressings that were sold with the fold-out sleeve and those that were not, is that ones that were not have the normal order of the sides although this is not certain.

Easily one of the best sounding pressings i own. That and the fold out sleeve remembers me why vinyl collecting and playing is so much fun!

Track selection this CD set is not arranged as originally intended. It uses the side arrangement of the original 2-LP set, which is ordered so that the album could be stacked on a record changer and then flipped.
Refer to album 'Stax ‎– 2628004' for more details.

The packaging is a bit flimsy. So much so that my copy ended up being dented on one corner in transit..

My inner sleeves were packed upside down, so when I ripped off the plastic they slid out the bottom. Luckily I was sitting down, but it could've been a disaster!

I know this is a great album but how does this pressing sound?

This is the album that my Mom just drove into the ground. When I grew up though, I started to understand why. Just like his other albums, he has mostly dreamy slow cutz on here, he has just more of them belonging here. Ike's version of "Never Can Say Goodbye" and " (They Long To Be) Close To You" are just terrific, while "Good Love" is straight up funky! I don't know why, but "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" makes me laugh everytime I hear it. Maybe because he sounds super-serious about that. Another classic from the man in chains!!!!!

They still haven't figured out the correct track order!

This version screws up the track order -- they didn't realize the original album had sides A and D on one disc and sides B and C on the other so you could play them more easily on a changer.
