the record is identical to the original snake plant colour https://www.discogs.com/Mort-Garson-Mother-Earths-Plantasia/release/13784507 (sticker also says limited to 300) but includes a numbered print out of 100

Agreeing with other reviewers on here, not the best reissue I could've hoped for, but certainly listenable. Lots of surface noise on my copy. Cool color and great to have in my collection, though.

Not the best pressing... The high notes are immediately saturated and screeching. No cracks, clicks or pops though, just not a very pleasant listen.

Flawless pressing - sounds perfect! Almost no surface noise at all and sounds very clear

Love this album! So happy I can finally own it!

Like others have said, there is definitely a bit of background noise here and there, but it's not that bad, and it's almost expected for an album of Mother Earth's Plantasia's age, especially given it was (apparently) done with no master recordings. That being said, the album sounds fantastic regardless, everything is so warm and lush sounding.

Other than that, I love the packaging, the green vinyl, the booklet, and even the downloadable card (which can be planted to grow wild flowers!).

Hopefully in the future we'll get re-presses as good as this for Mort Garson's other work: The Unexplained, Black Mass, Signs of the Zodiac, Music for Sensuous Lovers, etc.

My copy came only slightly warped, so that was lucky I guess. Playback is very good, only light distortion at some point, really nothing major. Sound is great overall. Could be better, but all in all, listenable and enjoyable reissue.

I heard about this rerelease and I was so happy. In my excitement, I bought both a black and green copy, and I gotta tell ya, I regret buying either of them. the audio is so harsh that I genuinely thought my stylus had gone, I had to try another record just to make sure. the brass elements sound unpleasant, like they're clipping. I went to hear the quality of the online copy, thinking these artifacts were forgivable effects of the less-than-ideal mastering process they had to go through, but no! Not a trace of clipping from the FREE Youtube example, but the $30 LP has it everywhere the audio pushes past 9 or 10kz. I have never had such a negative experience with record quality. Hopefully, Sacred Bones will take responsibility for this lack of care and try again, or at least give this project to a company capable of doing it justice.
