This record actually sounds pretty magical. I'm able to drive it pretty hard on my system and it really comes to life. The clarity is awesome for a live record. I can hear the bass really well and the drums are nice and full sounding. Nice dynamic range, mastered well so there's no harshness or muddiness to the music or vocals. All in all sounds really nice and really nails that live feel. I enjoy it. For some reason the second track 'I can't explain' sounds horrible though, don't know why.

This is a very nice reproduction, but it is not a faithful reproduction. Obviously, the two transparent colored vinyl discs are the first giveaway, but I am more interested in the packaging. (Disclaimer: I do not have the original album. I am going from memory and a cursory comparison with the first UK release using the info here on discogs.)

The record is a top loader as advertised, just like the original. The records do have the original film reel graphic with a diminishing amount of film left on the reel as one progresses through the album sides. The book has been updated. I believe this was made clear in the Record Store Day description of the release. However, it anachronistically updates the liner notes to the present. This jars a bit with the opening essay that refers to The Who's current release as "Who Are You." One's level of tolerance for this will be different. I personally do not mind corrected information, but I would prefer to keep the illusion that I am holding a record from 1979.

The most notably lacking detail is the original embossing of the film can graphics on the inner sleeves. The embossing has been replaced with shadowed lettering and detailing. This is where the liberties taken with the reproduction hit a wall for me. I am not a vinyl purist, and if I was, I would probably avoid colored vinyl anyway. I am mainly interested in packaging that cannot be adequately reproduced at CD size or in digital format (as if that were even possible). While I can understand and accept the changes made to the book, I am disappointed that the embossing on the inner sleeves is missing. One will have to make their own decision on what level of detail they want in a reproduction.

this is a beautiful 2018 rsd exclusive of this amazing soundtrack to this amazing film that came out back in 1979, lp one is on red wax and lp two is on blue wax and 180g at that, the booklet that originally came with this was reproduced with the same photos and all but with updated liner notes and a few mod style logos that did not appear in the original booklet 39 years ago, this is a beautiful package for rsd 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a total must for who collectors. this two lp set was printed in germany...

this is quite a rare copy to the soundtrack to the kids are alright film, this lp was pressed only once in brazil and unlike the rest of the world wide releases this is unique to brazil as this did not come with the booklet and some of the photos from the booklet are printed on the inner gatefold sleeve, hence THIS LP WAS NOT RELEASED AS A GATE FOLD SLEEVE ANYPLACE ELSE IN THE WORLD so this is a real unique gem from brazil, only pressed once way back in 1979 and never pressed there again..................

this is a quite scarce copy of the classic 1979 soundtrack to THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT film by THE WHO!!, this 2 lp set and the sleeve where printed in greece and released there in the spring of 1979, the booklet that comes with this was printed in germany and it is the same booklet that came with all the releases in all other territories worldwide, the sleeve is very glossy and laminated with a bit of small greek text on the rear of the sleeve..........................there is greek text on the labels as well...... this was only pressed once in greece and that was it.....
