Some dickhead sellers upped the price when George died. This was a hit therefore there are plenty of this.

RIP George. I use this pressing to set up my turntable. It really does sound astonishingly good.

The sound of this Japanese release is horrible. It seems whoever mastered it used (Dolby) noise reduction heavily on all three tracks so the dynamics are completely gone. It's a shame too as it's one of two issues of this single that contains the original Jerry Wexler version. Sonically a 12" single at 45RPM is as good as it gets, but I was seriously disappointed when I played this for the first time and it's a NM copy too.
