My pressing sounds horrible. Everything is mudded and gray. No separation between instruments and voice whatsoever.
Anyone else had the same issue with this or other releases?

This was Janis Joplin's final album , released just days after she passed away - was barely finished when it came out. Still, it is one of the best showcases of her massive talent and vocal prowess on record, and - by universal acclaim - one of the top-50 Rock and blues albums of all times. The album includes no
less than four top-10 charting hits, including Janis' timeless rendition of Kris
Kristopherson's "Me and Bobby McGee", no less than three (3) covers of Jerry Ragovoy's deep soul ballads (two originally performed by Garnett Mimms & the Enchanters and one by Howard Tate), plus songs by Bobby Womack, John Hall, Penn-Oldham and Janis herself - her immortal "Mercedes Benz."
