Wonderful sounding pressing. The noise level is very low. While there are some faint tics/pops I think it’s more a function of the wonderful dynamics of the record than the vinyl. As others have said it sounds like you’re in the room. I would highly recommend this pressing.

My copy is tremendous! Silent vinyl even before a clean. Beautiful jacket, sounds like she's playing in the room! Highly recommended album to chill out to

This record sound fantastic, mine came clean & flat. If you could get true mono cart for playback it even sounds better. Get it while you can!

My copy isnt exactly dead silent as many have said. Most ballads are very quiet and it would be truly a surprise to hear absolutely no ticks, which in my case there are a quite few faint ones, mainly on side B. Not a deal breaker because let's be honest: this is very silent considering the nature of the music and the fact that not even Tone Poet and RTI can manage to sound this quiet. Its as good as its gonna get, since acquiring a silent og pressing is a pipe dream in this day and age. Soundwise its another home run by RKS.

A stunning reissue indeed on a modern stereo fine line cart through valve phono with mono switch engaged. Compared to my old UK its night and day even before considering how much quieter the QRP pressing is. Perhaps the old mono would prefer a real mono cart mind you. However this has that glossy tip on loveliness which also deserves praise. These and the Tone Poet all analogues are the best value in town in 2020/2021.

My copy is immaculate, dead quiet and I'm very pleased with it. One minor detail, think the front cover could have been 1 stop brighter but that's hardly a complaint.

My copy is dirty AF. Washed it twice and still pops

Sublime. Peggy Lee and her band sound like they’re here in the same room. Perfect pressing

Just did a brief comparison with the Speakers Corner reissue on three tracks: A4, A5 and A6. The Acoustic Sounds pressing sounds noticeably warmer, with what is usually described as "lush" midrange, while the Speakers Corner is a tad more analytical, possibly with a tighter and more pronounced bottom end - but just barely. It is true there is some noise between the tracks on the Acoustic Sounds reissue, but it appears to be the tape, not the vinyl; could they have blanked it out - probably, but it is easy to live with, and certainly does not distract from the music. On balance, I would say the Acoustic Sounds LP is clearly the winner.

Out of interest, a Japanese reissue from 1991 ( was included in the comparison, but it was left in the dust almost from the get go - very little bottom end, and overly bright upper midrange with some sibilance.
