Still a classic. Haven't played this original vinyl pressing (Columbia 9701) in a few years...loving it!
Try to avoid the Columbia 180 gram vinyl reissue released during the 00's sometime (not listed here at Discogs), as it sounds horrible. Not sure what was used as a source, but it sure wasn't the master tapes. Maybe a CD was used? That said, even my CD copy sounds better. It has to be one of the most misleading 180 gram vinyl reissues released by a major label that I've ever seen.
Go with this original pressing if you can find one, as it's is the real deal, in all its analogue glory.
A true must have.
