I suspect the answer is one with a George Piros master but can anyone specify what the best vinyl pressing of this album is? I have a decent enough copy but there is too much surface noise for such a delicate album.

This is one record you cannot listen to even if has the slightest bit of crackle or pops.

I have a version with "SO" suffix on label code (ST-A-691631 SO). Is this yet another version?

I have wanted this album for over thirty years now, ever since seeing the cover on one of those advert sleeves. Roberta Flack looked so immersed in the music. I have not been disappointed, a truly remarkable performance from one so young.
