Anybody else have this pressing? Overall, my copy doesn't sound that great, and the second record is very crackly/noisy, particularly side C. I gave it two passes in the spin clean, to no avail.

It came with plain poly inner sleeves, and a slight label variation than what's pictured here. Wondering if any of the original ABC pressings are better.

Did really well with what they had to work with, but it's still a shame that some of the other popular songs from that era weren't included, namely "Any World (That I'm Welcome To)" and "Don't Take Me Alive".

This was the introduction to the world of my Fave SD tune...Here At The Western World... a mind numbing exercise in HI Fidelity & studio cool w/ lyrics & vocal delivery that define everything that is good about this weird band & is (astonishingly) a Royal Scam outtake. N

There is much written about the Robert Ludwig (RL) mastering (Masterdisk) of this compilation. I've listened to both the RL version and this RCA pressing and in my opinion the RCA pressing sounds as good and for some cuts better. The RCA pressing is dead quiet and has an expansive soundstage. The imaging is also quite detailed and better than that found on most of the prior ABC label pressings. The vinyl was pressed at the RCA Indianapolis plant which had the best QA/QC history in the record business. Although these were an RCA Record Club pressing they are not easy to find. Recommended.

There is a reason to find your way to this collection, simply beside the fact that it’s a really fine compilation.

All of the songs sound amazingly good, almost elegantly so, go ahead, stand them up against the formal albums released during that time period and treat your ears. The reason for this is none other than Robert Ludwig, who did a stunning job on the remastering of the songs for this double album. You’ll know it’s a Ludwig production from the initials RL right next to the ‘Masterdisc’ stamp on the runout grooves on all four sides.

Ah, yes, I can hear you saying, but what about that Kevin Gray issue. Yes, Kevin Gray did contribute on the MCA rainbow label, but his take is a far cry from what Mr. Ludwig managed to achieve, and there were other subsidiaries who released this collection, so you’re gonna have to be mindful with your selection. And yes, I hear you again, there’s the Gold Steely Dan collection, and it’s superfine, but that’s for another time, right now I’m into Robert Ludwig’s pressing.

This collection has been entirely overlooked for a number of reasons, with the primary reason being that it was thought of as being totally unnecessary at the time of its release. This release was no doubt the last Steely Dan album to encompass the original master tapes, and who knows if they even exist today, or what state of decomposition we might find them in. Whatever the source tape at the time, and however it was collected and assembled, the sonics are first rate, the bass dances with a superb vitality, the vocals ranges are extended and the guitars seem ever present, giving anyone with a turntable a reason to find this assemblage, where the bandwidth of the sound nearly causes the music to erupt from your speakers. If I may be so bold, this collection stands toe to toe with what Cisco did with the it’s remastering of Aja, a sonic feat nonpareil.

Of course there’s the snob appeal, with those who think they’re true fans, because true fans don’t do greatest hits, fan track through the original albums … but you know, sometimes I just wanna hear the hits, it’s no crime, I’ve got all the albums, I’m a true believer and I think this bit of wax is top shelf. At the time, the album included tracks from the Dan’s first six studio albums, including the previously unreleased number “Here At The Western World,” recorded during the The Royal Scam sessions, yet never included. These greatest hit packages can be iffy, as they often don’t capture the essence of a band, or failing that, they encompass too much, as bands move through changes like anyone else, so it’s refreshing to have this collection from the early years.

And if that’s simply not enough for you, the double disc set in mint condition is still available for around twenty dollars US. Now, the best chance for obtaining one of the Robert Ludwig masters is to find one with the gatefold jacket, along with the yellow ABC Record label, and then as I noted, look for that RL stamping on the runout groove.

This copy has got big bass to me. I don't have a hugely precise system, but Donald Fagen's Nightfly sounds perfectly balanced on it. The bass on this recording is real modern sounding, but a little muddy. For the muddiness. I don't know if it's my KRK's that lack precision. ( Kenwood KA-3500, Rega Planar 1, and KRK speakers.)

But overall, a very solid sounding press.

Saturday 9th September 2017:

I see that this Yugoslavian Jugoton pressing is plentiful and relatively cheap. I have zilch experience in buying Yugoslavian issues.

Anybody know what the matrices are for this one? Are they unique to this country? or perhaps using the same "MASTERDISK" / "RL" stampers used for the early US pressings? Thanks!
