I have a copy that has side 1 labels on both sides of record 1 (so I have to play a little bit of one side to know whether it’s actually side 1 or side 2...) Any one else with this mislabelling?

This pressing came extremely dirty. Though might not be visible initially, you'll realize how dusty and blurry it is after placing it on a turntable. If you intend to listen to this pressing, consider doing a thorough cleaning!

AVOID. This was always a muddy recording, but this pressing is just woeful. Dull, lifeless, and in need of a proper remaster.

So between the 2018 clear releases, and the 2003 German one - which do people prefer?

Sounds absolutly great. Yes I have the german original and both are great. This is new cut and done at Capitol.

Has this version been remastered at all, or is it identical to the 2016 vinyl reissue?
