    After reading so many positive reviews I bought this copy, and I am quite happy with it as well. There is good amount of energy (both vocal and instruments), spacious sound stage, great extension on both ends. I don’t have any other copies to compare but so far I can’t imagine how it could be any better. Being new vinyl it’s flat and dead quiet, and finally for just little over C$30, this really is no brainer.

    Edit: today I played a mint copy of original Canadian pressing (red label Atlantic), the difference between OG and remastered copy is mostly in two area:
    1) new vinyl has boosted treble. Very subtle, at normal volume you won’t hear it (might even be more desirable to hear more details at moderate volume). Once the volume is up music is roomful with weight and impact like musicians are doing live show in your room, these boosted treble make vocal shouting instead of singing, and more forward (a bit in your face), thus will cause fatigue.
    2) there is tinny bit of loss of mid and bass definition. For example when the bongos hits, original copy has a bit more “snap” that let you feel the bongos skin, the new copy gives you a vague bassy note. You can still identify it’s the sound of bongo but less texture.

    All in all, this remaster copy is still very good. I won’t regret buying it, and when I play in “not so loud”volume it has wonderful sounding with impressive 3D sound stage.

      Audiophile pressing very good quality love though the gatefold is not as clean in image as the OG

        Proof that an audiophile pressing need not break the bank. One of the best reissues in recent memory - just for the sonics.

          I’ll just reiterate whats been said , mine is flat clean and dynamic, u can put some volume on this and really hear the depth and width of this recording along with the crisp strumming of the guitar, the pluck of the bass and the breath in the harmonies and lets not forget the contributors on this record a who’s who of San Francisco musicians, killer album, press and mastering , a dark mellow psychedelic masterpiece -get a copy before its $100

            I have the rhino UK pressing cut by Bernie Grundman and it’s good but, recently found this 50th anniversary US pressing cut by Chris Bellman and it’s much better. Livelier, more dynamic and no issues with surface noise after a good cleaning.

              The more I listen to it the more I like it. Nice quiet clean pressing of classic Crosby’s style. RIP

                I purchased a copy of this record and can say, without hyperbole, that it is one of worst sounding, noisiest pressings that I have ever purchased. Not just clicks and pops, but continuous crackling and distortion. Side 1 is not too bad, but the second side sounds like what one would expect from a beat up VG- / G+ copy that I bought at Good Will. Clearly a faulty pressing, but it appears I am not alone in getting one like this based on previous comments.

                  For the love of god can someone clarify how to spot the real difference between the gz media european press and the one pressed in the US without opening the record? What about the jacket quality? Anything? Apparently the gz media one is a dud.

                    I just picked up this gem for $17.99 from Newbury Comics. It was marked down from $27.99. I think I got a bargain! No need for me to get the forthcoming MoFi. Can't see how they could improve on this pressing!

                      I got this pressing for Christmas and I absolutely love it! 37 minutes of pure warm analog bliss. The pressing is dead flat and very quiet.
