I've owned two other versions - the red and blue plain edition and the back to black repress - and this is easily best of the three, despite the slight surface noise. Also the artwork is loads sharper - I guess all reissues have relied on scans of the original up to now, but the difference is night and day - compare the back covers. You can't even tell Elliott's wearing an earring on the plain and geffen reissues!

This sounds great! A tad noisy at parts, but overall for a colored 1LP for an album this long, it sounds pretty awesome.

This sounds like garbage!! I returned the first copy I bought thinking it was just a bad record. They played it on a shitty portable record player in the store and it sounded fine. Wtf? After much hesitation they gave me another copy and I'm playing it now and sounds like absolute shit! I thought my speakers were blown out.

My copy is just a single LP, not a double. I don't think they offered a double.

Really good reissue, the mastering is done quite well and way superior to the plain reissues...

Sounds great, but my sealed copy had a handful of pressing defects - lumps/scrapes in the vinyl - on both discs, which caused a few pops. Nothing major but I'm curious as to whether others' copies are defective too.

Beware this CRAP reissue pressing.
Distorted overdriven mastering. Compressed CD even sounds better!
So bad.
old mine for cheap as quick as I could.
Just got a copy of Back To Black reissue from EU which is great.

Boycott Plain Recordings. They press from bad digital sources purely for profit because they have the money to do this. It IS the negative side of this reawakening of vinyl consumerism.

Sell of your plain recordings to people who don't have a good stereo or want such and such album on vinyl. When A/B, streaming sources sound just as good. It's junk stuff.

I'm having the same complaint for one I bought in 2015! And, this is the second one from two different pressings (one from a few years back was also noisy and crowded) ...I suggest taking away their (City Hall Records) Crosley's.

Hmm, this pressing sounds pretty great to me, I don't understand what's with all the bad reviews. Maybe there were some defective copies floating around out there once upon a time.
