    Guess I got lucky, my copy is mostly quiet. A few ticks on Some Humans, and a tick on The Moon Is Down, but solid otherwise.

      This is a lovely album but it's spoiled by excessively noisy vinyl, quite the opposite experience from other reviewers here, sadly.

        My favorite John Prine record and I am so happy to finally be able to add it to my collection. I had a few minor clicks on the first run through, otherwise it's a decent pressing, it quiet with nice clarity. Going to give it a cleaning to see if I can get rid of those minor clicks.

          My copy is nice and quiet. Don't have the 2007 press so can't compare but on first pass this sounds good.
