    This record sounds excellent, I think I got it for like $7 a couple years ago. For the price this goes for, it should be in everybody's collection. Morby forever! :)

      My copy sounds beautiful, no noise, no warping either - its perfectly flat. I had not heard of Kevin Morby prior to getting this as the ROTM, very much enjoy listening to it - its been getting decent air time at my house. He does have a Dylan quality, that at first I wasn't sure I'd like since I never really cared much for Dylan, but Kevin certainly has his own sound.

        Free download comes with bonus track "Flannery" squeezed in as track 6.

          This is a wonderful album, and an equally impressive pressing. Very nice, clear, and warm, with no surface noise. Thick, probably 180g vinyl. It might have been the tiniest bit warped judging by my stylus' movement. Despite this, it truly plays as good as I could ask of a record. And I can only speak for my copy, but it is a beautiful, unique, and classy looking record (and package).

          Vinyl Me, Please doesn't always kill it, but more often than not, they have this ability to introduce me to some really incredible artists. This is definitely one of those times. Also, for what it's worth, I like the art print that came with this one too. The album notes and lyrics booklet are also an awesome touch, adding super cool backstory to what I felt was already a superb album.

          Can't recommend this one high enough.

            Clicking on Side A for me. Not a bad listen, music-wise... I'm still kind of put off by the Dylan/Reed impersonation... But he could grow on me, I suppose. Pretty looking colored wax as is customary with these VMP ROTM releases.
