I have to say, after reading the other comments, i was worried. But..... My copy is perfect, No surface noise whatsover. I do agree with the paper sleeves however, they should be illegal.

This pressing is actually not bad if you attempt to clean it properly with solution and a vacuum, United is horrible we all know but this actually sounds great once you get it cleaned up properly. I actually chalk it up to the horrible paper inner sleeves they used, it leaves horrible paper debris all over the record and scuffs the shit out of the record. Put it in a nice sleeve city diskeeper and you are golden.

Love the album but this pressing is plagued by surface noise. Takes the enjoyment out of the listening.

With the exception of the runouts, this pressing looks identical to the 2009 version (I think I bought this in 2016 during a Fat Possum web sale). My copy was filthy right out of the shrink but cleaned up nice. The only physical issue is the nice chunk of vinyl missing from the lead in groove on Disc 2 (watch out needle!). Plays fine otherwise with no sound issues.

I would avoid the pressing... looks like quality control is poor, to the extreme. No excuses to sell us this junk.

My copy of the 2009 Fat Possum Records release was riddled with surface noise from the first time I played it after taking it out of the shrink wrap. It plays like an old beat-up record.The surface noise is so distracting I have trouble listing to it and feel like I'm just going to have to buy another one (on a different label). Has anyone else experienced this issue with this release?

An excellent version of a seminal album. A crowd of people in a hot and sweaty bar in Houston, Texas with a broken air conditioner. Stunned silence intent to hear every word of the bard performing for them.

I don't know if there's much I can say that hasn't already been said about this recording. Chauffeur's Blues by Lightnin' Hopkins is shown here to be the musical backbone onto which Van Zandt wrote his lyrics for Brand New Companion.
