I’m not impressed by the audio quality. The music is great. Not full-bodied. Sounds compressed. Noisy vinyl. Freshly cleaned vinyl (using VPI 16.5) and brushed stylus clean, but noise persists.

Can anyone comment on how this pressing sounds compared to recent re-issues/the original?

I find this pressing very fine and easy to scratch and damage the playing surface, but a top class pressing but needs a lot of care when handling,

Please re-issue CD! This amazing album never had a CD release.
