This pressing is a much more affordable alternative to tracking down an original issue, and they've done a smashing job with the packaging and label. The marbled wax is available in multiple colors, (I've seen brown, pink and dark blue thus far), but this is where its merits end.

If you're purchasing this as a pretty addition to your record wall then by all means - this is a great buy. But sadly, the audio is poorly-sourced and/or pressed.

The label lists the recording as mono and, out of curiosity, I performed an A-B test syncing it with the same recording from the much lauded Discovery CD Box Set. This bootleg pales in comparison to the Discovery remasters. Where most of my LPs are punchier, louder and more dynamic than their digital counterparts, the reverse is actually true in the case of this bootleg.

This pressing sounds muddy, flat, lifeless and dull when played against the well-produced Discovery set.

If you're truly after the best sound, go for the Discovery remasters. You won't be disappointed. But if you just want something for your shelf, pick this up... your secret is safe with me.
