Good quality pressing. As far as the sound quality, I’m very happy with the copy.

My copy of this pressing sounds very good. it's had Botox compared to the Gavin Lurssen mix I have on CD but that always felt a bit lackluster to me. As mentioned below the bass has been pushed and the whole thing sounds very alive. Also worth noting that this is the best colour from a coloured vinyl I've seen. My pressing is flat and centered and quiet.

When I saw the price of this single LP reissue, I was a little pissed...$32! I rarely ever pay over $25 for a single LP. But! I have to say this LP delivers! First thing that hits you is that deep, warm bass, it really rounds out the sound and the music sounds super full and lively. Drums are punchy, and Gaye's vocals are sharp and dynamic. The sound is up front and direct and you can really feel the emotional energy in the tunes. I'm super happy with this reissue to where I don't really care that it cost an arm and a leg, it's totally worth it. Amazing clarity, nice, rich sound. Pressing is ace too, flat, centered and not a lick of surface noise. 10/10. Pick this up if you can.

Song #3, Where Are We Going? (Alternate Mix), so many highlights. Any variation of this Deluxe Edition is an absolute must-have.

Can anyone verify the quality of the vinyl in this edition? Is it thick enough, etc?

I also have the harsh sibilance in the same places and this was heard on the very first play of this new vinyl, so it must be an issue with this release. So i would advise no one to buy this vinyl
