The wretched and abysmal PLAIN Recordings screws the almighty pooch once again with another poorly pressed classic album that sounds gutted and muted. It is an absolute crime against music that labels like Plain and Music On Vinyl are allowed to get their greedy, grubby mitts on such wonderful albums that deserve far more care and respect than either of these bootleg labels could ever offer.

Eh. Better than the Plain pressing of It's a Wonderful Life (which curiously doesn't include all of the original tracks), but still...not stellar. Sure beats skipping your grocery bill for an original pressing. If you absolutely must have it on vinyl this is at least cheap, but I cannot in good conscience ever recommend anything from Plain. I've sold every Plain pressing I've ever purchased. What a legacy having your product end up in the bargain used bin just days after purchase! I wish I could cuss without reprimand on Discogs. Plain deserves it. I could invent an entire lexicon of new and supremely vile cuss words for the folks at Plain.

Acquired the latest Plain pressing. Still poor. Noisy. Poor dynamics. Muted textures. What a disappointment.
