Sounds ok, apart from Rosalie which is just so flat. For that reason (and the cover...) I shall be seeking a UK copy. For now, this is not too bad over all.

Let me start by saying that I love this LP. It marks the beginning of Lizzy's "classic era" and is a significant improvement over Nightlife, the much softer (and far less focused) preceding LP.

However, this RCA Music Service edition does an awful job of presenting a great Phil Lynott production. Gilbert Kong - one of Mercury's great in-house mastering engineers - may be credited on the sleeve, but that is merely a carryover from the artwork appearing on the standard US retail editions. Instead, RCA cut the masters for this Music Service edition themselves. Check the runouts - there is no "G.K." or "MASTERDISK" or Mercury number (SRM 1 1108) to be found, not even crossed out. In the case of this LP (and most other RCA Music Service editions), they used a dub which sounds many generations removed from the original master to cut this LP (you gotta figure Mercury got a 2nd generation tape from overseas, then sent RCA no better than a 3rd generation tape). The result is a very muddy record which might soon be mistaken for a cassette.

I knew from the first strike of Brian Downey's snare at the beginning of "Rosalie" that I was in for a disappointment. Where I (eagerly) anticipated a sharp, pronounced "crack," I heard only a dull "thud," as if the snare had been covered with a damp towel and struck with a newspaper. That should give you a good idea of what you're in for.

I would avoid this RCA Music Service edition unless you are a Lizzy completist. Those looking for a good US pressing should make sure Gilbert Kong's initials appear in the runouts, alongside the "MASTERDISK" stamps.

For a club pressing this is pretty good. Reasonable clarity and some respectable dynamics, no weird distortions. Pick it up if you come across a copy. Not quite a 5 but definitely better than a 4.
