Having an original for some time I never felt like I would need a reissue. But recently I've been impressed with Speakers Corner and went for this one out of curiosity. So here I am.

The original was recorded pretty hot and has always sounded fantastic. This reissue does an excellent job at preserving all the things that made the original mastering great. The music essentially "sounds" the same; there's no loss in the performance but there's also no "like hearing it with new ears" revelation. But the Speakers Corner reissue takes it up a notch when it comes to the cut and pressing. The SC is cut louder; Side B especially you can see the effects as the groove take up a lot more space when you compare side-by-side. The instruments feel a little more upfront and present. But the big difference here is the pressing by Pallas. Absolutely no surface noise and pristinely quiet in all the right spots (it's especially groovy on Side B, which thrives in those still spaces of those slow jams). The rest of the package (especially the gatefold jacket) are all welcome upgrades to the original. Again superior work at keeping the feel of the original record and adding today's quality standards on to it.

I won't be getting rid of my NM/NM original anytime soon, but will probably end up playing this one more often. If you're looking to upgrade, replace a worn copy or you've never owned this record before I would highly recommend this version as it'll be your last.
