This is a remarkable re-issue of this lost folk rock gem. The sort of release that makes me want to forgive RSD for the typical dross that gets release under the logo. Quality of record, sleeve and the sound (the most important thing) is simply stunning. Modern records don’t sound like this. The most amazing thing is that the master tapes still exist. Sounds like the band is sitting in my living room with me. Not only that - but it’s a damn good album. The original sells at crazy prices. Why bother when they make a repress like this. May go buy the other copy my local shop in Athens has. Could be one that becomes collectible in the future

Mastered at in London who certainly have the vintage gear to do a full AAA vinyl cut. Sounds great to me. Clean vinyl, little surface noise, sounded impressive as soon as the stylus hit the groove. Only 550 pressed. Not your normal RSD cash grab.

I got a copy. Flat, well mastered and silent wax. Very good. However, the blurb on all the RSD shops described it as "pure analogue" mastering - that would be AAA then. I'm not so sure, it doesn't sound completely analogue. A bit too clean. Can anyone confirm?

My copy is perfect.
Vinyl is quiet and flat as a pancake and looks just beautiful.
It's cut from original analogue tapes and you can hear it. The gatefold and photos on printed inners are simply stunning. Highly recommended!
