Has anyone come across a similar copy that does not have "Printed in England" on the back or inner sleeve? Otherwise my copy seems to match. If not, do you recommend creating another copy?

I have an unnumbered copy. Identical to the numbered copy but unstamped. Does anybody know what the deal is with that?

I do not have an original to compare this reissue to but this sounds flawless to me. Great reissue.

This sounds fantastic... Unfortunately, mine was horrible warped out of the packaging and the first songs on each side are unlistenable as a result.

I’ve owned all the 4AD releases on vinyl for decades. Bought Surfer MFSL LP and hated it. I hang out at Steve Albini’s forum for his Electric Studio and I asked his opinion and he said it was not his work on the MFSL release. He recommended the SACD, So I purchased MFSL’s SACD release and it’s possibly the best sounding version I’ve heard. The rawness is there, but more importantly the drum SQ is spot on compared to the original release. Ive yet to hear a good MFSL version of what was called Altnerative music, except In Utero....even then the digital is much better than the vinyl, IMO. Sea Change is solid, but I don’t own the vinyl MFSL release— just the CD.

Contacted Mobile Fidelity Sound by email and this is the response I got about how many copies are produced of various titles: “As far as our current releases go, unless a limited number is specified on the listing, the number of copies to be pressed is not predetermined. If not specified, limited edition refers to the length of time in which we hold a contract with the artist/label. All contracts are different, but do expire at some point. When they do, we can no longer make copies. They are pressed as needed during the length of the contract for that title.

Music Direct is the current owner of the MFSL production now. They purchased the company as it was going bankrupt in 1999 from its original owner!

As per Wikipedia, they said the following : In November 1999 Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab shut down after the bankruptcy of M. S. Distributing, one of its biggest distributors. In 2001 MFSL's assets were acquired by Music Direct. The acquisition turned over to Music Direct the company's intellectual property and the rights to the technology used in the proprietary mastering chain.

So with this knowledge of their process, it really means that unless an LP is strictly numbered to a specific number of copies, the pressing can go higher as long as the still have a contract with the original label. This explains why my Santana - Abraxis is numbered over 10,000. I guess this was a popular seller. I’m assuming if certain titles are more desirable and popular the number of copies will definitely vary in how many are pressed.

Their web page is very specific about what titles are limited to a certain number and if it doesn't say the LP is strictly limited, it’s more of a time issue than how many copies are actually pressed!

Only their SACDs and Hybrid SACDs are limited to either 2,000 copies or 5,000 copies. Their SACDs use Direct Stream Digital (DSD) encoding rather than the more common Pulse-code modulation (PCM). Mobile Fidelity sells its remasters in limited editions of 5000 copies or less.

Music Direct is a great company to deal with. I’ve purchased many of my MFSL Lps and Hybrid SACDs from them. They still have some remaining copies of this Hybrid SACD in stock. It will play on most regular CD players as well, but to get the full High Resolution sound, you’ll need either a SACD player or a mutiformat player like I own. I have an Oppo BDP-105D player and I haven’t found anything this player will not play, plus I’ve got the region free model that will play PAL DVDA DVDs and Blu-rays from anywhere.
