Top notch DMM pressing of this classic record. This album changed my life when it dropped, so I look at this one with critical eyes.

Mecca & The Soul Brother was remastered in 2010 for the Box Set Deluxe Edition . The box set is a definitive capsule of their work during this project. incredible and is worth getting. Most of the vinyl releases between 2010-2020 use these remastered files as their source. So, when you're looking at the best reissue from this period, the pressing should particularly be the deciding factor. Comparing to the Get On Down release, I prefer this one. The GoD version isn't bad by any means, but the MOV is a little more punchy, clean, and zero surface noise. Probably things that you wouldnt pickup without A/B testing, but there are noticeable differences in those details. I'm unclear right now where the Get On Down version was pressed, but typically they use United which is problematic, especially given the choice to use clear vinyl. (Side note: At this point I'm skeptical of any clear vinyl unless it's pressed at Pallas in Germany). MOV in-house pressings of DMM are usually crisp and this is no exception. Nice black polylined sleeves; perfectly manufactured. If you haven't bought a copy yet and are deciding between the 2 reissues then it's worth the effort to get the MOV pressing.

One final critical factor that makes these reissues a must have is that they are more complete than original versions and repressing. Previous versions of the vinyl included Mecca And The Soul Brother and The Creator as extra tracks C4 and D1. A nice addition, but although these were originally labeled as the "Remix" versions of each, they were actually still the original cuts from the All Souled Out EP. The tracks are excellent and I even prefer the Creator over the Creator Remix side-by-side..... but neither really fit the production of this LP. They def are better suited for the EP and share that same production vibe. When playing the original LP they stuck out and always felt like bonus tracks crammed on there. Now here the remastered cut replaces the originals with the Remix versions. I have to believe this was the original intent all along as they sound so smoooth here with the rest of the album. It's the kind of detailed decisions that elevates this reissue above the original vinyl pressing as well as the original CD pressing.

Highly recommended. A rare occasion where you could not ask for anything else in a reissue. Pick this one up along with the CD Box Set.

This is the only pressing I’ve heard. But, it sounds fantastic! Everything is balanced and the crackles etc that you hear are part of the original samples! Highly recommended :)

Very low output level on side A for me. Even with gain to max on my mixer the levels never reach the red.

Does this pressing have the exact etchings as the original EU-pressing or did they add some additional details like the repress of The Main Ingredient? Clarification would be much appreciated!
