One of the best purchases I made all year. If you see this set, snatch it!

Some defects on the last side — blah — but the rest of it plays perfect and sounds great.

Glad everyone got such clean copies of this stellar release. Unfortunately, I didn't. Was noisy throughout, even after an ultrasonic cleaning. I manually scrubbed & vacuumed the discs, then ran them through the Degritter another time & this helped a whole lot. Now, I'm much closer to the experience that everyone else describes, but I wouldn't call it perfect. Slight warps & a couple of sides pressed off center, but this doesn't affect play, thankfully.

I think this is possibly the best RSD release of 2021. A lovely package with fantastic sound.

Whoa! Not what I went to RSD for but ended being the best thing I got. This set is fire

This is an absolutely phenomenal release! Craft has done an amazing job of utilizing the analog master tapes to reissue these classic albums faithfully and with crystal clear dynamics—you truly feel like you’re packed into the studio next to these Chicago legends. For fans of electric Chicago blues, this release is a historic must-own, but any fan of rock and blues will dig this.

The new liner notes and original album packages are a huge plus, too.

Great music and sounds great for 1966 recording. The vinyl is very quiet. One of the best RSD albums I bought this year.

Slight warping on all discs for me. Doesn’t effect play thankfully. Also getting slight distortion on the last tracks on each side but I think this is more due to my set up than the pressing - although interested to hear what others thought. Apart from that, a fabulous sounding pressing. Need to crank it a bit to get the full experience!!

Can’t believe no one has posted about this yet!? The SQ of this album blew me away. Fantastic sounding pressing. Craft continues to impress me. I knew this would be good but had no clue these tracks were such burners. Lot of heat on this, well worth the buy.
