Agreed, the Rhino Dead vinyl reissues are superb. I wonder how the recent MFSL compares...

I can't believe there isn't a single written review of this pressing! It may very well be the best-sounding LP in my collection, which I realize means nothing out of context, but even at low volumes, Jerry's voice shines crisp and clear, you can hear the fingers plucking and strumming, Phil's bass anchors every song where it should, it's literally amazing. I wish every single one of my records sounded this way! It's a no-frills release, so no liner notes, nothing, but when the audio quality is this good, for such an affordable price, who cares?
