I have this exact Silver series pressing and my findings differ greatly from previous reviewers. This has to be one of the worst pressings I not only own but have ever listened to. Having owned a lot of the original Merciful releases in the UK I am well aware of the 'budget' production Eldridge and Co. put into their releases so I was hoping for good things with this especially as my Dead Can Dance MFSL release is stunning.
The pressing I own is thin and extremely rolled off in the lower mid and bass frequencies. High frequency range is shrill and bright and the worst thing is that both sides sound completely different. One side is a lot worse than the other.
I was a high end audio distributor and re-seller when I lived in the UK and had a top flight audio system so I was not playing vinyl back on any budget system. Deck was a fully modified Nottingham Analogue Spacedeck (every NAS modification available), fitted with an Ace arm and Lyra cartridge.
Information retrieval from this turntable was stunning and as I previously stated, another MFSL release was truly breathtaking on this turntable. I did play this Sisters MFSL release to a few friends and Sisters fans and they all agreed with me on how bad this pressing sounds.
Once my collection arrives in the USA from the UK I will take a close look at the runouts to see if there are any further clues.
Maybe a bad day at the office...mastering studio?!

Has anyone else purchased the LP only? I got the same barcode and the same matrix number, but no EPs in the package.

Prefer the 2006 remastered version of the 2006 Red Rhino: sound space much larger, and more precise details (that you do not hear in this 2015 reedition). It's very easy to read the difference on "Poison Door" intro, or "Marian".

So looks like this is exactly the same (catalogue numbers, etc) as the UK general release that came out a few months earlier?

Are these reissues identical to the ones from the 2015 box sets?

Has anyone had the opportunity to compare this edition with any of the original 1985 releases? Thanks in advance!

I have been kind of skeptical of the whole Mobile Fidelity Labs cult of record collectors but this release is amazing. I have listened to this record since the 80's and this is the best it has ever sounded.

Definitely a favourite. Interesting history here since, according to my ears, the panning errors are not present in this release...

Excellent boxed set, vinyl plays and sounds great. Note, that the box distributed in the U.S. does not include a download code. No issues with production quality as it seems to be the same as the European set.

Also of note, singles are 45 rpm, I expected as much but troublesome for my setup as I have to remove the platter to play.
