From my experience with releases he mastered, they all suffer from the same problem:
The bass and highs are cranked up and the mids are suffering from it. Whether it's an LP or a 12" - it's the same issue.
Not necessarily noticeable directly, but if you compare his cuts to other people's cuts (be it an original vs reissue pressing or e.g. a song from 12" he cut vs. the same song on the LP, which he did not cut), you will definitely hear it. I have several samples here, if anyone wants to hear it.
