One of the quietest records I’ve heard. Sound quality is phenomenal and the packaging is right there with it!

Wow, amazing pressing, sounds really good, both records play very quiet and flat pressing. Packaging is A+
I have an original pressing and this one stands on it's own.

Something is missing from the sound of this remastered album. All the instruments and vocals are being delivered on the pressing but sonically the soundstage is so 2D that all the soul seems drained from the sonic experience. I’m going to look for the original pressing to see if that sounds any better.

on first listen I think disc 2 sounds a bit 'fresher' than the original album, seems a bit of congestion on the first disc, no sibilance and dead silent, just missing that 'something'....a solid effort for sure and packaging is well done. I'll give it a clean and see what happens...

Sound is solid. My discs were flat and quiet. Caveat is I have not heard other pressings of this, but it sounds pretty good and I don't have any complaints.

I have never heard an original pressing so I am basing my listening experience on this pressing's merits alone. This is a quality master housed in absurdly wonderful packaging. The discs are flat and quiet and you don't have to worry about sibilant vocals on this one (I have heard recent Curtom pressings that had such terrible sibilance). Once again, I do not have an original to compare this to and it is possible that an original blows this out of the water. But, if you're like me looking for a reasonably priced, well-executed reissue: this is what you want!

debate on mastering aside..does anyone have one that can comment on sound?
VinylandKicks86's profile picture
yeah i would also like to see a actual response from the label about origin of the source material.album details from acoustic sounds says "Lacquers cut at Sam Phillips Recording Studio from the original stereo master".

Not sure why my comments and others on this release were deleted... but it has been confirmed that this is a digitally sourced reissue, despite the photos of master tape in the booklet.
