Love the music, pressing suffers from sibilance though, at least my copy does. Even adjusted myTT set up to eliminate that as a possibility.

Love the galaxial pharmaceutical version on this!! Can't decide whether I prefer this version or the original!

Really enjoyed this despite the problems. Firstly it's been squeezed onto 2 sides so the content is so quiet that the noise floor becomes more of an issue, it's surprisingly quiet considering how close to the noise floor it is. Whether they had to cut a lot of bass to fit it on is another issue. It does work well as 2 sides though, really draws you in.

RSD pressings always seem to be a problem, too many manufacturers trying to get their product in the store for the 'big' day, quality control suffering in the factories. Choosing to go with a printed card liner is a bad sign that the label are cutting corners, it should have been a poly bag with separate liner notes, would have cost a few more pennies but saved some of the scratches.

Still happy to own it. Just needs the volume right up to enjoy it at decent volume.

A really enjoyable record. After a good cleaning I found it to be a good pressing. I was expecting the Abbey Road mastering magic but that would be nitpicking.. the inclusion of a more bulked out sleeve (gatefold) would have been nice. But this shouldn't detract from the excellent music within.. goes well in my FSOL collection

Six of the tracks here are actually different to the versions on the 2002 Abbey Road version - Divinity, Osho and Meadows are longer and feature new sections, while Mello Hippo, Her Tongue is Like a Jellyfish and Galaxial are shorter and feature minor editing. Yes My Brother is missing and Go Tell it to the Trees Egghead is later in the running order. There will never be anything approaching a definitive version of this album!

£24.99 on the fsol website. Might be a better pressing too.

Not quite as bad a pressing but quite noisy...FFS you would expect for RSD they would make sure that it is a quality pressing!
Does anyone know where it was pressed?

Got a really bad press too, a big scratch on side one which sticks then pops & crackles on side two

Personally, happy to get The Abbey RD cut on vinyl....if you are disappointed, wait for the CD pressing - seems pipelined - or try to get this:

My copy has zero background noise, so no issues there. True, it's a little on the quiet side. BUT you can always turn up the volume AND it means less up and downs to flip the record - something that delivers a much more gratifying listening experience. Thanks FSOL for putting this one out there!
