This is the white label promo version of SR90214. Played it with a Shure V15 III with an elliptical not hyperelliptical and it still sound fantastic. The vinyl was super quiet laying to rest in my mind issues about the quality of Mercury vinyl that others have raised. These criticisms had always seemed somewhat questionable since why would the acclaimed team at Mercury who are lauded for careful recording technique employ inferior vinyl that they would hear the minute they spun a test record?
Besides the actual musical performance of Moussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain is one of the best I've listened to. IMO these Mercury Living Presence records are underappreciated.
