Notes

Note: The songs on this album represent certain fantasies that might have been entertained by a young man growing up in the remote suburbs of a northeastern city during the late fifties and early sixties i.e., one of my general height , weight and build.

    Just bought a VG+ Quiex II copy with moderate wear (at $65 I probably overpaid). After ultrasonic cleaning the only crackle I heard was between songs, tracks were super vivid. I’m smugly satisfied.

      This pressing is super dynamic! And very quiet. 5 stars

        The one step of Paravicini is the one but this is plenty god enough

          Sounds great, dynamics are on point. I haven't heard the one step but this is close to perfect.

            Great sounding LP. Not sure if the Quiex thing added any positive sonics though. Might have been a gimmick.
