Can anyone comment on the surface noise on this reissue? The reissue of "Closing Time" is bad.... mastering as well as surface noise, and a lot of it.

Edit: 25th of March 2018: it's available on Newbury Comics. Buy it from them! Waaaay cheaper.

It's a great sounding record. And a looker, too.

I just got my copy yesterday, and it has a raised bump on the second side, second song. Be careful and look copies of this pressing over before playing so you avoid stylus damage. I was glad I looked first. The edges of the album were rough & messy with bits of “ribboned” vinyl still needing to be cleaned off.
