I dont know what all those "remastering" engineers do or where they learned to hear.. This is called Beat Music but its mastered to dead with a lack of those wild deep basslines and heavy drums you want to hear.. Trying to get hold on some of the records that my parents used to have when i was a child, i will turn to buying used copies of the old releases instead of keep on buying this dull sounding shit..

Excellent copy. Of course, I washed my new lp first and put it in a brand new inner sleeve - as always. You guys should do that too, most of the posted complaints here would be unneccesary.

Well, looks like I had some luck with this edition as well - no vinyl particles, no grain, no white marks whatsoever. Only a little dust from the inner sleeve (which sadly is not antistatic), but I could clean that easily. The sound is powerful to me, though I don't own a 1st press yet.

Since this seems to be a gamble, I cannot fully recommend this edition, but as for my copy, I'd say: go for it!

My copy looked like shite, very dusty and you could feel grainy bits of what I'm guessing were loose vinyl particles from the pressing process. Any hoo, I ran the anti-static brush over each side and cleaned it with a little isopropyl (mixed reviews for using this from some quarters, I've always found it to be OK) and a lint free cloth and voila it sounded fine.

Okay, well, a lot of people are complaining that their copies arrived sounding pretty bad, as well as not arriving in mint condition. Someone placed the blame on GZ Vinyl, and someone else said that the packaging was cheap.

I have this exact copy, according to the serial number, so I know it's exactly the same. Unless something about this pressing has been updated, or something, some people may have a different pressing. Because, as far as I can tell, I don't really have any problems. I know, I might be a minority, but I think the remaster sounds pretty good. I don't have an original pressing to compare it to, but it doesn't generally sound bad to me. The packaging is good quality, I think. No different to any other record I've ever bought. Also, I don't see "GZ Vinyl" anywhere on the sleeve. One of a couple of complaints for me was that it didn't come with an anti-static sleeve, which meant that I had to pull the record out with the paper sleeve dragging across the surface. That generally is what causes the scuff marks that people go on about. The static of the cellophane is what causes the inner-sleeve to stick to the record surface so mercilessly. You'll never (or at least, a heck of a lot less often) see anything like that if the record is stored in an anti-static sleeve. The second complaint is that there was debris of some kind left on the surface. I've had that problem before, but it's no real fuss as I can easily dust it off with my record brush. Otherwise, it's a nice package. A good bargain considering how much I picked it up for.

So, not alone thinking this is a poor "remastered", when your scar poor master on a 180g vinyl, it stay poor...

So, it appears I'm the lucky one.
Got this edition - no marks on the LP, it's not warped or anything, sounds as it should for a '60s mono recording.
There is a barely heard surface noise. Much less than on GNR Appetite for Destruction reedition for example.
All in all it's not a bad edition, not a bad pressing.

Sometimes i should read the comments before buying a record. Poor pressing, there are scuff marks all over it and strange white marks. That pressing is noisy, save your money to buy the real thing.

As all UMC releases, expect heavy damage on a brand new vinyl... look for another edition

Not impressed with the quality of the vinyl of any of the 2015 The Who reissues. There are scuff/white marks on the surface of the records that do not wipe off. Also there's surface noise that is not what is expected from brand new vinyl. My 70s/80s WHO albums sound better. All in all very disappointed.
