Notes

Most LP pressings only contain a 6 minute shortened version of 2/2 instead of the original length of 9.38 min.
While most copies bear 1978 ℗ & © dates, all available evidence suggests it was not released until 1979 (March '79 in the UK, and later in other regions).

Can’t share the negative reviews voiced by many listeners here. My sealed copy was clean, with only very minor, short period of background noise on 2/2. No warping or major popping noises that were reported by some. Very happy overall.

Really fantastic pressing of this masterpiece of an album. My copy sounds absolutely outstanding with extremely low noise. Lush, clear and organic as can be. I honestly don't see any particular reason to upgrade from this version to the half speed remaster or any other remasters, especially if you already own it.

Worst quality pressing of any re-issue I’ve ever listened to. Warped. Popping. One skip. Scratches. Avoid this

Awful pressing. Annoyingly noisy, filled with pops and clicks. Hard to enjoy unfortunately.

Legendary album. My copy of this pressing was filled with click and pops. However they seem to be minimizing the more I’ve played it which makes me think it’s some deep factory grub that the needle is eventually wearing away.

Yes, this pressing sounds fantastic and the vinyl is dead silent. Yes, this version looks great with the obi and has a heavy tip-on jacket. But most importantly it looks like this is the only early pressing that features the unedited 9+ minute version of “2/2”, making this the pressing to get. Highly recommend this or any of the other Japanese ambient Eno pressings if you can find a clean copy at a good price.

my cat really loves Brian Eno. Whenever I play this album he comes from another room and sits near the computer and starts purring. https://www.journeynepaladv.com/activities/mardi-himal-trek

Bought mine today new at a local shop. Sounds good. Quiets are quiet and no clicks or pops or surface noise.

Surface noise was minimal enough to my ears. I have no problems with my copy. Close to the digital version for my taste. Packaging came with a foreword statement from Brian Eno, and a Sound of Music download card.
