It featured one of her top-10 UK hits, "Son of a Preacher Man".

Face B was noisy with many pops. Compared to the AP SACD (sorry don't have the vinyl), the sound quality is very deceiving. Sound seems compressed with less clarity. Some tracks were nearly painful to listen. I don't know if I got a bad copy. I returned it and didn't try an exchange. Will probably buy the AP vinyl.

I don't know about the quality of this particular reissue, but the original album itself wasn't recorded very well. I believe the original master tapes were lost a long time ago as well (in a fire?) Just a potential minor defense of 4MWB, but I'm not sure how well this is ever going to sound. There is a more expensive reissue out there spread over two records and at 45rpm... it still isn't very dynamic and sounds flat. I also own an original pressing, and you wouldn't be that impressed... trust me.

Have this exact pressing, but a hype sticker has been placed directly on the jacket promoting "The Windmills of Your Mind". I found this copy at an estate sale. I'm not sure if this was originally on the shrink and the previous owner attached this themselves.

My first impressions of this pressing are positive, it sounds how I hear the record in my head with a rolled off top end and good thick bass. In my opinion this is a fairly accurate representation of the recording, without any big mastering tweaks and that is a good thing.

This series of re-releases labeled "Warner • Elektra • Atlantic Roots" were from the mid-1980s.

Could anyone give me a good advise which vinyl version of Dusty in Memphis sounds nice? I own the version 4 Men With Beards and it sounds so bale, dynamicless. Thanks!

Over time, I've come to avoid anything to do with 4 Men With Beards. About to toss this one in the Goodwill pile. It's a shame, because they target a lot of great releases.

Jerome,
I have The Temptations French pressing But I will certainly grab The Dusty Springfield "Dusty In Memphis".
Would it be possible to send the two as one package so as to save costs?
I will order the Springfield LP from you now.

Thank you for your help.
