I found this used at the local record shop for not much $. I'm glad I didn't pay too much for it because it doesn't sound good at all.

I have significant surface noise, even after machine cleaned with Audio Desk ultrasound and the recording is digital, very flat. This should sound open, but it is not enjoyable at all. I was very disappointed with this album.

Quiet wax here, and lots of evidence of Nick Cave mic'ed well and good mixing / mastering. Cave's rich baritone is center stage with the piano's bass keys pronounced in the left speaker, and treble in the right. Sounds gorgeous and intimate.

Cave's label could stop putting his records in heavy paper inner sleeves and instead put them in rice paper sleeves. Might address the noise issue so many seem to have with this pressing.

I'm having a right ball trying to get a quiet copy of this . I've taken to ordering a copy each from 2 different online shops . Logic being - once I find a quiet record I can keep that , then send the noisy record back for a replacement. So far I have a good side A and B but awaiting replacement number 5 - hoping I can get a quiet side C and D . It is always the beginning of each side of C and D that I'm finding is the worst

EDIT - After 5 different copies , I now have a quiet side C/D also. Took a while - but got there in the end .

Excellent pressing for me. Nearly dead quiet and perfectly flat discs.

My version of this has the label for side A on side D – side C has the correct label, sides C and D play correctly. Do all copies have this misprint?

Bummer, I guess I got unlucky. My press has plenty of surface noise at times throughout. It's a shame because it's a great record and seems to be recorded well. Did clean on vacuum RCM ... maybe I'll try a second cleaning.

Call me a fool, but my issue (and two of friends as well) has nothing extremely off. Dead quiet and flat as a ruler. There are some minor tonal issues on a couple of tracks, but for the rest it is more than I could wish for. Performance comes out as it should imho, it’s a large and empty room with 1 man and 1 piano. That’s bound to sound different than all you know. His new interpretations of older works and new ways of performing newer ones gives a lot of value to all his works.

Happy with it and already played it on multiple occasions.
