    OKAY I'm going to let you on a little secret ..... There are hard to find I luckily got mine years ago at 25 dollars new ... Although it's very hard to tell if they are used or new BECAUSE this copy and the other 3 are not sealed they are bagged with no seal on the cover and no strip either to tell either they're like taped on the back in a plastic bag all mine came that way ....ALL FOUR and the rest is in the INFO ,,,, IF YOU SEE RM AVOID IT ALL COSTS .... They're a whole back story to this release. You'll thank me lately if you're like me and weep to this LP everyday of the week ...

        Great sounding 1970s original pressing, great balance between lows and highs and separation of instruments with Tom right up front. Perfect companion to, but in my opinion, still beaten by the 2010 Bellman remaster. If you see one of these Artisan mastered LPs, whether an original, or a reissue with a reused stamper, get it.
