Quiet and bad pressing. A lot of surface noise, and the cover is a cheap cardbox. I got it as a present, but I would get another edition (don't know if there are another ones out there).

Is it only quiet? Or does it sound bad too?

It is a quiet album yes. Check this out: http://www.chicagomasteringservice.com/vinyl.html
Each side on this runs over 25 minutes. IIRC when you go with longer recording times you sacrifice dynamic range in LPs. CDs do not do this or shouldn't if mastered correctly; if its mastered from the record then it would be quiet too.

The CD of this is also very quiet. It needs to be remastered

I got this version signed by 5 members of the clan (and cappadonna) through a v.i.p. event about ten years back. A prized possession. Always sounded great to me.

I have this version and a repress because this version's bass slaps more and sounds better on vocals. Even though I have a copy that has some surface noise I think I prefer it over the quieter repress.

Where is the bass at???????? Great lp but...... Where is the bass at? I would have thought the latest reissue would have rectified this?

Does anyone know how to determine the difference between the original pressing and the 2000 reissue? Is there a difference?
