I am very impressed with the quality on this. As a child I had whatever Electra were putting out on vinyl at the time... as an adult I only heard it on cd and mp3. This is a completely different experience of the music. Costly but I am glad I made the purchase,

It's kind of hard to quantify how listening to this made me feel. It was like listening to the album for the first time with a completely different set of ears. I'm not quite sure how to describe how it sounded better, as if Arthur Lee was speaking to me directly. Sort of like I was sitting at the mixing desk listening to it being played back, the percussion, especially has a crisp & muscular impact that I've never really appreciated properly before, despite this being one of my favourite albums. I'm not sure if I've drank the MoFi kool-aid or if the Rhino one is just as good sonically and I'm not about to buy a copy to compare since that'd get in the way of enjoying other records, but all I can say is that this is just a feast for the ears.In terms of presentation, the thickness of the jacket, the immaculate sheen of the discs and even the wrap-around catalogue added up to a sumptuous tactile experience. Overall, I may pick up a couple of my other favourites on MoFi as a sort of treat,

Definately worth your money. I own 3 copies. A UK pressing, a Rhino reissue an this one. The Rhino will do on most parts. That pressing sounds awesome. But this, the OMR pressing, is sublime. It takes you more into the songs. It sounds like there is more space for each instrument. More detail, better in the mix and it feels like you can walk around the orchestra, while the band plays in front of it.

I actually don't think this version sounds superior to the Rhino reissue. The bass is a muffled and not deep sounding and I'm not getting the striking clarity that I normally get with other MoFi releases. IMO, the levels are off. When the lead guitar guitar comes in on "A House Is Not A Hotel" for example, the drums lose their punchiness and the rest of the instruments get lost in the background. I feel the mastering is kind of lacking in intensity and a bit weak sounding. IMO the Rhino sounds stronger and the music has more energy to it. The soundstage is nice and wide and the dynamics are good but I hardly believe it's worth shelling out the extra clams for this version. I will say that "The Daily Planet" sounded particularly good. But it's a trade off, sometimes the vocals lose prescence in lieu of the instruments. My copy also had a slight edge warp which I've never experienced with a MoFi release before and did have some light hairlines and scuffs right out of the package which I have pretty much come to expect from this label now. Damn this is one of my favorite records, just wish they woulda done a better job but hey the original masters are super old and who knows how they were stored so they probably did the best they could. They did mange to bring out the richness of the strings in some of the orchestral parts but overall, I'm sorry to say I'd have to chose the Rhino.

If this reissue would be made from the mono mastertapes i would go bananas, but this stereo reissue is hardly any better than the Rhino reissue, which sounds absolutly fantastic. Here you simply have to go to your turntable twice often. And ... don´t forget the 67 listening expierence was also just on ONE record!

I was suprised at the margin of superiority this has over the Rhino, which is also very good. This has so much more bass and low end details. It excels over the Rhino in every area for me.

Got a copy from Amazon for 30 quid in the U.K.! No issues with distortion at all. Only heard a gold label first press and this was better.

So far I have received two copies and both had sound distortion on track 1, "Alone again or". Awaiting a 3rd copy and hoping the sound quality is right on this one. Not what you expect for expensive Audiophile releases :o(
