      I was pleasantly surprised at how good it sounds, and my gear doesn't hide anything. Pressing was flat, and I always clean new records, both with enzymatic solution and ultrasonic in distilled water followed by a final rinse on the Nitty Gritty. No surface noise whatsoever even if the vinyl wasn't dead quiet. Pressing #2159. I'm not often happy with new releases but this one was on point.

        Digitally remastered by the famous Barry Diament. Anyone compare this to the original UK pressing cut at Sterling?

          As others have mentioned, the extras are the reason to get this set. The BBC live studio performance has been readily available on bootlegs for years, I didn’t perceive a significant upgrade in sound quality. The alternate mix LP is great. I suspect it’s also been widely bootlegged but I didn’t have these tracks before. 3 live tracks and an etched side is a waste of the 4th disc (either include Talkin’ Blues here or reissue it, ffs). The 3 live tracks aren’t particularly great recordings. The pressing of the original LP is flat and just okay.

          Bottom line, if you don’t have the BBC performance and the alternates, this set is probably worth it. If you’re just buying it for the alternate LP, it’s a lot to pay but those tracks are legitimately great.

            One of the best RSD releases! Very well put together between the vinyl, packaging, and sound.

              A new copy arrived yesterday as well as four more replacements in the series. This CAF #2283 is much better second time round although still needs some flattening. The others (Natty; Burnin'; Rastaman) are borderline OK all with strong RIG noise and some warp. The Live! #1375 replacement is awful; totally warped, noisy and badly centered - distortion in the vinyl. This will be returned to Bravado. In summary a very mixed bag of quality.

                50th Anniversary is great addition for a Wailers fan or collector. Album LP sounds pretty good, the first live LP is a great performance and good recording quality for 1073, the alternative versions LP- this right here is the best LP and worth it alone; great alternative versions of the songs, raw recording but intimate, the second live 12” is another cool bonus. The mastering of everything is overall good (not great) but the pressings are quality. The packaging leaves a little to be desired, flimsyish box and printed paper sleeves for each LP, booklet is nice

                  How does this sound compared to the 2023 Jamaican pressing?

                      The original LP here sounds like what it is, slightly compressed high res digital. I find it enjoyable and reasonably well pressed, but lacking a bit in dynamics. The extras LPs and booklet are great. I would have preferred it including the original (no overdubs) 10 track Jamaican version instead of disk 4 but the extended tracks are fantastic. No More Trouble (Jamaican Instrumental) Wow, just wow. Inner sleeves should have been poly lined, but the images are good. Overall I think this is a reasonable value for 2023 $80 Musically 5/5

                        Just finished listening to all 4 of the records in this coloured vinyl set and am happy to report that they are all well pressed, clean sounding with great sonics to my ears and absolutely no non fill or clicks. I have a couple of other copies of this album because it is my favourite Bob Marley record and unlike someone who posted regarding the normal black vinyl of this pressing, the main album sounds just as good as my others so quite happy with that. The main reason for getting this for me was the inclusion of the Paris Theatre live set which is fantastic. They probably could have just issued that on its own which I would have been more than happy with, but having the extra tracks on the other 2 LP's is nice but not essential listening although I did really also enjoy the No More Trouble (Jamaican Extended) on the 3rd disc
