      Just picked it up from a shop today, sounds fantastic! Flat, clean. Nice soundstage, Jonathan right in your face on Lesbian Bar.

        Mine is noisy, annoyingly so on that summer feeling, requested a second copy which was exactly the same. Shame as it looks great and really suits the cover photo.

          Not sure there are many albums that can make someone feel this happy.
          Vinyl pressing sounds so so so good. Highly recommend.

            If anyone wants to get rid of their copy, message me. Looking for a copy that isn’t warped.

              Super disappointed in this pressing and wish I’d checked the review first. My copy just arrived extremely warped and beyond that, the edges are quite sharp and uneven to the point I was surprised it didn’t cut through the sleeve in transit. This seems like a poor quality pressing. I don’t return new records often but this is going back. I’d avoid.

                My copy's not warped but it's not a great pressing. Side A occasionally has a nice swoooosh sound in the right channel and some crackles. Side B gets progressively more crackly towards the end (after cleaning). I guess the crackle adds a bit of extra 1963 charm to the recordings.

                Until a better pressing comes along I'm going to hang onto it. Meanwhile my copy of 'Having A Party With...' (also issued by Craft/Concord and presumably also pressed by Memphis) sounds great.

                  I've had problems with Craft releases in the past, but I lucked out with my copy of I, Jonathan, no warpage or audible defects. Phew!

                    Seems like the repress run of this was plagued with issues. My original 2020 pressing is great — I'm not sure if they can be differentiated by matrix because I don't have a copy of the RP, but I would try to track down an OG...

                      AWFUL pressing, so much so that I will never purchase anything put out by Craft Recordings ever again. Tried 3 copies, 1st was warped so badly I didn't even bother, 2nd was slightly dished and skipped on A2, deep cleaned, same. Returned for copy 3 hoping 3rd time is the charm, same skip, same spot, clearly a pressing flaw and they just cranked them out. Maybe you will get lucky, but I found this pressing to be highly disappointing, noisy, flawed, and not worth it. A shame as this is a great recording!

                        My first Craft Recordings purchase and...I'm not impressed. I've purchased two copies of this and both had awful looking surface defects (dimples, pimples, and a rippled surface). The first copy was bad enough that it was audibly noticeable. The second is at least audibly OK, but still sloppy quality control here. On top of that, I tried purchasing directly from Craft and it took them 3 weeks to tell me that they were out of stock. C'mon, Craft. I was expecting a bit more from you.

                        (That said, as for the music, this is one of Jonathan's best. Second only to Modern Lovers, IMHO)
