      This uses the same metalwork as the original Terre Haute press so it will sound the same.
      And it does sound good when the recordings allow it to. Nice stereo imaging and soundstaging at the right volume and that deep bass is present and full as it should be.
      High frequency passages are sibilant free and controlled.
      Not much can be complained about and even the vinyl is quieter than the recording hiss, at least from the Terre Haute plant in the 70s.
      Find yourself any copy with these matrixes in clean condition and enjoy.
      I would still be very curious to hear what some label like Sundazed could do for this album if employing Kevin Gray like on their fantastic The USA reissue.

      Equipment Used:
      Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-110 Cartridge
      Cyrus 2 Amplifier
      System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
      Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

            The (C) in the runouts is probably a U signifying United.

            Is the sound good though?

                I was very disappointed upon opening my copy to see this was pressed by United Record Pressing, who consistently puts out the most mediocre records in my collection. Almost always flawed, noisy, scuffed and dimpled. Buyer beware!
