      My pressing is flat and there is no noise floor as many other comments suggest. Maybe I’m just lucky here. matter of fact, it sounds better than the digital stream in high resolution on Qobuz (24 bit, 96khz). Played after cleaning on Opera Consonance on LP12/Klimax Radikal/Urika2/Kore/Karousel/Akito/Krystal, Selekt DSM Edition Hub/Amp/Organik, Akurate 242

          This record is a real jewel from one of this generation’s finest songwriters. I’m enjoying it immensely.

            I am pretty sure its pressed at Smashed Plastic in Chicago, 90° edges, perfectly flat and usually centered but with insanely high noise floor (all my SP pressings are like that 😒) dont know why that is (maybe poor plastic pellets???) sad because otherwise they do a good job. I stopped buying records from a certain label because of this.

              This is a strangely pressed record. The edges are not tapered like normal records but sit at 90 degrees giving it an oddly industrial or home made feel. The music is great though.

                This would have to be one of his best up there with Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle. Mastering is excellent but it's let down by the pressing quality come on Drag City it's time to get your releases pressed somewhere else.

                  $ + £ 35 / € 40: the new normal prices for vinyl releases ? NO, THANK YOU. (Oh, well it‘s pressed on 200 gram vinyl, so it must be legit).

                    Very great Record, but my variant is full of knicks and cracks and very loud background noises. A professionell wash did Not help. Return to Sender.
                    Anyone knows if the Vinyl is pressed in just one plant?

                    Addendum: Record exchanged. Slightly better, but still really poor press quality. Shame.

                      Bill Callahan is an absolute master as a songwriter. this record is a must have - great songs, with absolutely great sounding (only sporadic cracking noises) and flat pressings. buy it!!!!

                        Can anyone explain to me why this record is so damn expensive? This will be Callahan's first record in many years that I won't buy immediately, hopefully to find a discount or secondhand someday.
