I need to review this LP release for the benefit of would-be purchasers. First off, while advertised as mono you need to know that this is not the mono mix heard on the original mono pressings. It sounds more like the stereo mix folded down - except, not quite. Some of the orchestration is extremely quiet compared to Nat's voice, which is very noticeable right from the opening track, and it sounds like something has gone badly wrong at the mastering stage. On other tracks his voice drops alarmingly in volume so that the entire track is too quiet, only for his voice to boom a short while later as though it's being passed through a noise gate or something. Anyway, I'd accept all of this if it were on the original mono album, or even if the stereo album sounded like this when played in mono, but that's not the case so I need to find a better pressing unfortunately.
