    Great record and performance of Oregon! My run out matrix with the Specialty logo and Masterdisk stamp,the same as listed here. The credits on the back cover credit Robert Ludwig for the mastering, though there is no RL etch in the runout. Also, there is no SP on the label, it says “AR”. Any info on this? I don’t have any hum issues.

      This is no way that hold the quality of Oregon.

      Be aware that although it has the same 6E-224, it is not the same press. It is remastered, the pressing has static hum. I don't recommend it.

        My LP says 6E-224 but it has a brochure showing iPad. How could it be?

        I guess they continue to press from the same master?

        Anyways, it should be great after giving it a wash first. Noticed noise from the coating.

        From the first playback, I notice the coating noise and audio level being low and some what low frequency area being little distorted.
