    heavy distortion on "s" lines and high drum frequencies, overall not a good pressing.
    edit: I'll receive the 2017 45RPM official reissue soon, then I'll be able to compare

        2 great classics! However, I’m not sure if I was unlucky & got a sub-par copy.

        I’m probably not describing it well but I’m getting a bit of hiss-like distortion at the end of each vocal line & with the cymbal crashes throughout the song. Is this what you call sibilance?

          How does the poster know this is a boot etc it looks very real to me, is a great pressing and great sonics and it 100% matches my other black on sliver/grey Phillies from Columbia Inc same pressing stamper lug finishes etc.
