    LOVE IT!. My daughter told me that I could not sell or damage it as it is the one LP that she wanted from my collection when I die. Blackbird is AMAZING!.

      I have the A3 version - MFSL-2-0721-A3 H132 and also the original. This is the one I put on when I clean the windows, once a year. Why? Easy to get lost in it, a more refined, delicate sound, although the original may have more punch, midrange, etc. It runs a bit lower than the original, and the volume has to be turned up to get a fair comparison.

        Need disc 1 for this! Found a copy and it only had disc 2. Help a guy out, id love to have this full album!

          Sound is very clear and deep and shows lot of détails - there is however a lack of mid range medium that is quite a shame specially on acoustic numbers

            When I was a teenager, my little brothers stole this Beatles album from my room and memorized it.
            When my brother Steve was in the last stages of Alzheimer’s, I played it for him. When the the song ‘piggies’ came on he started singing it and laughing. One of my best memories.

              This sounds wonderful, even better than the 2009 remaster! Highly recommended.

                How does it sound? How does it compare to the earlier pressings or the latest ones?
