I am so pleased with this! As mentioned in another comment this is like rediscovering the album! John and Bernie really care and it shines through on this album.

This version is far superior compared to the 2012 repress. That version sounds very cold and digital with lots of clipping. This version sounds like i'm actually hearing the album for the first time. The sound staging and dynamics on this pressing are simply incredible.

For those wondering/asking, the initials BG are written in the deadwax, so this was indeed cut by Bernie Grundman as it was advertised.

What does "recut" mean in this context? Is this LP any different in Sound than the original one?
