Re: Blue Vinyl - Real Gone LP - Wash it a 100 times, it gets better each time. Sonics good, vinyl has excess waste...

noisy w/hairlines on both sides. scratches a-side: loose sleeve debris - packing? disappointing as ambient as it is - love the guitar creakiness on this recording so a quieter pressing would have been much "preferred." unnerving since the only reason I purchased this record on this label was because of the SQ of Jack Kerouac & Steve Allen (3) - Poetry For The Beat Generation. harry deans voice on "I Knew These People" is a bit smeared especially near the end of the piece. feel like i should find another copy but probably will deal. filed next to "Crossroads" on the shelf for now

My copy is very noisy as well. Pressing is horrendous. Are the US pressings any better?
Maybe they are not meant to be played. :)

This is a solid repress. It's bare bones though. Nothing different from the original other than the blue vinyl. I think blue is an odd choice for this record. Red, white and blue would have been a great choice. So would neon green. But just blue? Hmmm...also, a gatefold would have been appreciated, as would liner notes and maybe a printed sleeve with a road map on it. Anyway, just my two cents. The pressing sounds good, and that's what matters.

Ha! That figures that Newbury would have their own variant! Thanks for the info.

There's a Newbury Comics exclusive that's red. Maybe some other retailer has a white version? ;)
