I landed on this pressing after doing mountains of reading through Steve Hoffman's forums. These are 100% analogue and sound much more natural than the popular 2012 pressing I had (which is sourced from a hi quality digital source). There's little nuances on this pressing I couldn't (or didn't) hear on my the 2012 version or on Spotify. I guess a couple things were lost on the digital conversion.
My only complaint here is with the vinyl they used for this press, it's obviously cheap recycled wax (this was a budget press when it released).
I don't think we'll ever get a definitive AAA release of this album, but this isn't too far off.

This uses the analogue tape and mastered at sterling sound, This is the best pressing you can get.
