Sunday a.m. 21st Octobre 2018:

There’s no year listed for this reissue (or possibly “repress”). The posted image shows the cliud label with the Cienega Blvd. address on the bottom rim.
According to a forum post #5 by “Ben Sinise” in a 2008 thread
( http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/trivial-question-for-asylum-label-experts.130440/#post-3353531 )
usage of the Asylum clouds label with the Cienega Blvd. address date from the period 1975 to 1984. My copy is rather thin. I own other records also pressed by Specialty in the early 1980s e.g. the Beatles reissues w/Capitol retro rainbow labels, and they’re similarly thin. My guess is that this Closing Time likely dates from roughly 1980 or later ... it’s just a guess, though.

Today I picked up a VG+ copy of this blue-clouds label, Specialty Records Corporation-pressed (confirmed by the “SP” suffix on labels) reissue for a reasonable $15. Lo and behold, my copy has the desired Artisan Sound Recorders “circle and sticks” logo on both sides! Artisan is reportedly who cut the lacquer(s) for the first, 1973 issue, when the white Asylum labels were used.

I also noticed in the dead wax scratched out matrices that mostly match those for the 1973 issues. So, could this plant have used old (or new) plates that stem from the Artisan lacquer cut? In other words, would this later issue be just a repress? My copy’s mastering sounds fine to me; balanced, clear and dynamic (at least for a mostly ballad-oriented album it does). But, I’ve no other vinyl version w/which to compare, not even the 2000s Rhinos or the latest, digitally remastered LPs.

If this is indeed a later ish which is, fortunately, a repress, are there other early Waits titles which were also repressed using their original Artisan masterings?

I am not very familiar with this album in other formats but I can say this LP sounds really good.

I also found there was some surface noise at the start of either side, but definitely worse on side A. Also I did notice a weird 8-bit like audio quality dropout for a second or 2 on side B, which could be an issue with the master or the groove; seems a little better after a couple of plays. Besides that I have to agree that the remaster sounds really good otherwise, nice definition in the bass.

I actually think the new master is an improvement overall and sounds more dynamic than the last pressing. However, my copy is a mixed bag. Chunks of both sides sound okay, but Ol'55 is a disaster. Constant noise and crackling and several VERY loud blip sounds. It sounds like everyone has a different issue - for some people it's a whole side, other people just specific tracks - so it seems Anti really dropped the ball on QC.

Surprisingly quiet wax for an ANTI pressing, which are usually garbage. Mine came with a seam split, which is also very common for ANTI for some reason. Overall though I'm impressed by this pressing compared to the poor work they've been doing.

I don't tend to expect much out of inexpensive represses - I tend to purchase them just if I'm trying to fill a gap in my collection at a reasonable price, while I wait for a better copy. But this one was a complete disappointment, per the other reviews. A lot of surface noise, the mastering is lackluster, and the sleeve was torn (not the fault of the third-party seller I purchased it from). There was a massive, visible divot on track four that causes about 10-12 seconds worth of skipping. This one is going in the "replace sooner rather than later" stack and then getting turned into a craft project afterwards.
