      All reissues distributed by Best Records (2016, 2017, 2019, 2020) use the same source and as a result have the same blatant sonic defects: Excessive low pass filtering causes significantly changed hihat sound, less airy synth pad and dull, muffled bass-synth. While one of the YouTube-videos of the original pressing goes up to 16 kHz, the reissues have not much left above 13 kHz! In spectral view, some missing frequencies in equal distances become visible, which means that some phase cancellation is going on as well, confirming a slight suspicion I had while listening. Equally important, the attack of the kick drum is completely lost (presumably from automated de-clicking), transforming this characteristic element of the original into something completely different. 4 bars from the first 8 bars are also missing, they have been cut out in cold blood without any compensation! Seriously, the editor could have at least retained the full song length by copy and pasting the other bars of the opening bars.

      An extremely disappointing reissue with a multitude of severe flaws. An obvious cash in with no respect for the music or the music lovers. I recommend ripping the YT-video or saving some money for the original. They are worlds apart.

        Save your cash for the Italian 1st pressing. This one is sonically stunted. One day I hope for a proper re-issue of this classic to make it affordable to everyone.

          Does anyone know if there are plans to reissue this on heavy weight black vinyl? I certainly can’t afford the original pressing but would live to get my hands on a high quality reissue!

            My copy's labels are the wrong way around, wondering how many other copies are like this.

                My copy sounds ok. A little muddy on the mids to highs but no major problems like with the usual coloured vinyl releases. You can usually judge these by the spaces in the music, not much noise certainly not at the annoying levels (depends on your ears mine are 50 years old). The intro has a hiss on each rotation but it goes away. Sound level is loud enough and good enough to play on any club or decent bar system.

                  My black copy sounds fine all the way through on both sides. Maybe a little loud on the surface noise but all in all good.

                    Terrible pressing. Bought a sealed copy, but first playthrough revealed a persistent rhythmic crackle throughout entire duration of side 1.

                      got the blue version: mixed-up center labels, and honestly quite disappointing sound quality... pretty weak for an item with such a high retail price :/

                        Amazing Re-edit of the original masterpice, i also like very much the Danilo Barca revision, refreshing and speeding up this amazing tune. Just recived my blue copy, the sound quality is perfect. Keep o going !
