I had the Friday Music version of this, which I have treasured for 3 years. But I accidentally dropped my record weight on it and gouged it! I had to replace this great record right away! So I found this copy in my local record store. I Must say it sounds even better than my old copy. Loud, no surface noise at all! The Friday Music version sounded great but I could tell it was digitally remastered. This one sounds Fantastic! And more analog as well. I Did like the gatefold cover from Friday Music so I just swapped out the covers,Lol. Perfectly happy with this pressing. And I am picky!
If there is a better pressing out there I would like to hear it as this one is amazing. Dead quiet vinyl, absolute clarity and true to the original presence. You will want to make time to play this one it is that good.
When I first dropped the needle on this one, I thought my volume knob was turned all the way down. lol! This pressing is absolutely noiseless. One of my quietest records for sure. It is a very good repress of this masterpiece. I highly recommend it.
