This record blew my mind. I'm now definitely a Speakers Corner fanboy

Wow. “That’s the Way of the World” gave me chills multiple times. This pressing is so crystal clear.

Another great, great pressing from Speaker Corner. Very silent and incredible soundstage. Very detailed and emmersive album.
After hearing this pressing I am very curious about the Impex version.

Buy this one first, the songs are consistent and of great quality. Playing is excellent and no complaints here. Seriously, this is a first class piece of music.

Sounds fantastic on my system (VPI Classic, Parasound HINT, ProAc Response D2, GoldNote PH10, REL T5i). Kevin Gray mastered this, and did his usual great job.

this was the first record I played on the new mid - fi stereo that I bought after college. I had been used to all in one student crap and got a yamaha cr-800, dual 1258, and a pair of large advents. needless to say, listening to this record on my new set up was a revelation. I thought it was perhaps because of what I had been used to but even today "shining star" leaps out of the speakers and phillip bailey's soaring "reasons" is heartachingly beautiful. it transports me back to those days in 1975 in a way few records effect me. the copy I have is an original 1975 first pressing and the production is astonishing. I like this record.

My copy is extremely quiet with no pops at all! My only complaint is that it lacks any dynamics. Very mid to bass heavy on the spectrum.

I LOVE this pressing, vinyl is dead quiet and the horns just shine, great soundstage. No issues with this pressing what so ever. #1448/2500

Finally i found a brazilian copy of this album. And yes, very, very recommended. I compared the quality sound with the original US copy that i have (https://www.discogs.com/Earth-Wind-Fire-Thats-The-Way-Of-The-World/release/502117) and the brazilian one are more warm, comfortable, than the US. About the music itself, the title track maybe is the most gifted moment of EWF career.
