    Dead quiet. Flat. Smooth edges. Thick. As always, Mr. Crockett sounds great and puts out high-quality vinyl.

      Fantastic pressing, and the edges are super tidy with no loose strands of vinyl or inner sleeve shredding shards on the rim of the record. Dead quiet, great album to boot.

        My copy of this is dead quiet. Great pressing!

          Just wanted to pop in and say my copy works great too nice thick vinyl no surface noise a real treat.

            My copy also has no surface noise. This is a nice, quiet, flat, heavy pressing which sounds perfect. Clean your stylus, guys. I wonder how many reviewers are playing this on a suitcase player with debris on the needle? Mine sounds perfect, anyway!

              Mine copy is OK. It isn't the worst thing I've heard, by a long shot, but it isn't perfect. Mine was flat, centered, nice thick vinyl. There is some surface noise, only really noticeable between tracks - I would say about average for today's standards. A few pops and clicks. Nothing that would scare me away from buying it.

                I want to report that my copy had no problems with surface noise that i could tell so I am guessing not every copy is bad pressing quality. just wanted to add this after reading several bad reviews.

                  Purchased this awesome signed copy from Shake It! Records in Cincinnati as Charley signed a limited number of copies for them. A fantastic set from Charley with excellent production from Mark Neill and mastering (for vinyl) by Jeff Powell (also cut the lacquer). The sound is full and deep, providing the spacious feel of the studio during recording. This is also very thick vinyl, though my copy does have some surface noise throughout. Despite this flaw, this is a great sounding release and the autograph from Charley is the icing on the cake.

                    The music is great but this pressing has quite a bit of surface noise. Even after a good cleaning still pops through out. It's not unlistenable but its not ideal. It is what it is I guess.

                      This might be the worst new record I've ever bought pressing quality wise. Giant scratch and total skipping on first track and constant crackling the whole way through. Now I gotta get it swapped out. It's a great record material wise, though.
