    I've always found the original RL to be a good sounding record, but nonetheless just a little too muffled for my liking. The question has shifted towards a battle between the 50th anniversary and the MoFi: a 2xLP 45RPM set cut from a digital remix of the multi track masters, or an all-analog cut sourced from a UK copy of the original master tape.

    To start out with, the 50th edition was remixed in conjunction with Robbie Robertson, so I'd argue the "woody" and "unearthed" sound he made for the original mix was transferred to this one very well. Overall, the album has a crisp and clear sound while still maintaining that atmosphere. The album has a good soundstage, with instruments and vocals separated quite nicely. It's a great edition to own if you're not looking to spend too much money on a pressing.

    When it comes to the MoFi, it has all the same qualities I enjoy from the 50th and amplifies them to a higher level. There's more detail, especially on Levon's drums and acoustic guitars. The music has more power when blasting from my speakers, yet still remains in control and undistorted. One last small detail is that I prefer the MoFi fake leather texture on the jacket compared to the matte cardstock on the 50th.

    Overall, I'd definitely pick the MoFi over the 50th anniversary edition if you can afford it. However, the 50th is far from a bad copy for the money. It's definitely one of the biggest bangs for your buck currently out there, and out performs a lot of standard editions of classic albums.

    My Setup:

    Pro-Ject 6 Persepx SB Turntable
    SoundSmith Carmen MKII Cartridge
    McIntosh MP100 Preamplifier
    Klipsch R-820F Speakers

    sounds amazing, 45rpm makes a difference. sleeve is excellent quality, sturdy with a rough texture.
    it should be noted that this one does not sound like the original. like the new beatles reissues, this one sounds much more modern and clear compared to the originals. a lot of the original mix had a certain muddy quality to it, which is part of the character of it. this is very high resolution and has a much better high frequency response. with that being said, it does sound a little digital, slightly compressed and less airy than a typical analogue master. (im not sure if this is AAA or not but if it is then maybe my ears are just terrible).

    Mastered By – Bob Ludwig he does mostly or only digital mastering atm, right? than it is written Lacquer Cut By – CB*, who usually cut AAA at Bernie Grundman Mastering. than they say Mastered At – GZ Media – 191979M ???? and Pressed in a canadian pressing plant?
    This is very strange...this can not be true.

    Mucho mucho fantastico . Best sounding mix I’ve ever heard of this album.

    A little surface noise between tracks. That's it. Everything is perfect. 45rpm is always better sound. This pressing doesn't disappoint. It sounds great. Pretty sure Robert Ludwig did the mastering for this. I cleaned before playing. Alot of debris from the plant. I have a ultrasonic cleaner so I'll give it a bath and I'm sure it'll clean up the remaining surface noise between tracks. Don't let this not make you buy as alot of new viny these days suffer surface noise. It's the process I assume. It doesn't mean the dynamics aren't there. They are. Unfortunately from my own audiofile ocds I have to usually ultrasonic clean everything. The surface noise on this album probably wouldn't even be noticed by most

    Wow - never heard the album so good. The remix and remaster is perfect, the pressing is fantastic! Super clean, flat, no ticks or pops. Thick gatefold - highly recommended.
