A decent condition 69' original being too rich for my blood, I went this route and am pleasantly surprised by the sound of the pressing. Punchy and loud, which suits the music and gets the tailfeathers shakin'.

The first Meters album, and pretty much setting the ground work for '70s instrumental funk. Excellent album- every track is a rocker! This reissue has been oddly mastered. The bass is turned waaaaaaay up, making up for some of the limitations of whatever source they tapped for this cut. While the bass holds, you can hear a lot of peaking otherwise. It sounds less like a remaster and more like some engineer picking their favourite EQ preference before making the cut. Still, it's very listenable even with the lazy technical decisions.

How does this pressing sound to you? Ten words needed.

Has a bit of a canned sound with muddy overall production. I suspect the original masters don’t sound much better although I don’t have anything to compare against. On the plus side the disc is quiet with little/no surface noise. Good balance and nice low end.

Decided to take a chance on this pressing as I have been impressed with most MOV pressings in the past. This pressing sounds terrific and it is very dynamic. Highly recommended if you can find a copy and enjoy the album. I cannot compare it to the originals or older pressings, but this one is dead quiet and is great sonically.

It's funky as hell, yeah. But the sound reproduction is filthy. It COULD be the pressing, or the coloured vinyl, but I'm pretty sure it would've been just as filthy back in '69 too. In fact it sounds like it may have been mastered from a 1969 LP rather than the tapes!
Ok....the drums are amazing....but really, if they had the engineering on it that Booker T had on his records, say, it would've been amazing.

I bought this pressing new in May 2020 and I do not recommend it. This is an outstanding album, but this pressing sounds utterly flat. There is so much brightness and crispness there in the music, but this pressing diminishes it all. I do not know why. Everything just sounds mushed together and flat.
