        Finally sliced this bad boy open today and let me tell you the sound is great! The dynamic range is crazy good which means they finally listened to us, only complaint about this album is they put the records in the sleeve before the gloss layer dried so it was stuck.

          I just saw Scott Colburn (who is currently in the process of remastering every Residents album for the pREServed reissuing campaign) open for Avey Tare the night before RSD. Had I known just how good this was going to end up being, I would have given him a hug on the spot. Gorgeous work.

            Also, I'd like to point out that even though the track list is different, "Very Long Suite" is in fact the same as the original "Hallowed Be Thy Ween"

              Sounds GREAT! According to the liner notes there are two mixes and this is the one that was sent out. I've heard bootlegs of this for many years and this vinyl sounds so much better and particularly, Wholelottadick has a way louder, shredding solo AND drums which I never heard in the crappy bootleg files. This is a great demo album. The Warner Bros album is just for completists but B.S. is a solid album. RSD has become a huge joke for releases and this was the only thing worth buying this year.
