A nice version. Pressing was slightly warped with no effect on playback. Maybe a bit on loud side, but sound is above average.

I have had two copies of this vinyl reissue and am not impressed at all? Both copies have exactly the same fault. Side 2 is wildly (and I mean that!) off centre to an extent I have not seen in a while. Furthermore the record is warped, not on the outer edge, but in the middle of the disc. This causes the cartridge and stylus assembly to move in a distinctly observable upward movement with each revolution. It is like a ‘speed bump’ in the middle of the record. Pathetic MPO pressing!

The Japanese flattening machines cannot fix the warp I have described because it is a serious pressing defect. The record is unstable in that there is an outward movement due to the off centre spindle hole on the one hand and the warp on the other hand which causes the upward movement. My shop claims to have no returns so far and I believe them because they are decent honest guys. It seems to me that their entire order is as I have described. I guess we all have different standards and expectations? How anyone can play this record is beyond me because the record is off centre by at least a centimeter! As a matter of logic, every copy that was pressed with this stamper will be the same. That is a large number of copies, surely. Pressing quality is very good in terms of quiet surfaces but that is of little comfort. I do wish that SONY and Warner Rhino would dispense with MPO which, based on my experience, is possibly the worst plant now operating in Europe. The 3CD set I am I happy to say is excellent and sounds dynamic and punchy and is the better purchase in the case of this iconic album.

Why oh why, won’t Van allow somebody like Kai Seeman of Speakers Corner look after his stupendous catalogue for audiophile vinyl release? It would be a feast of great music on quality vinyl. We live in hope.
