Picked this up for $15 on eBay and couldn’t be happier. I’m a little amazed at how quiet it is between tracks! I’m hearing a few pops but I haven’t cleaned it so maybe they’ll go away. Great bass response - not overwhelming but very present.

One of the best sounding records I own! Amazing mastering, and SILENT vinyl! Buy before it's 10 times the price.

Ryan Smith should cut one steps at mofi and get to custom design his own equipment and shit. This feels like being the tape head rolling along the analog master tape. It’s good.

Cleaned if first and there was some surface noise so I played the whole thing through a couple of times at 45rpm. Now it sounds great. Mastered well and really does justice to some very busy tracks.

The album is an absolute classic. I prefer this remastering from my original 86 copy

After buying three different copies, I finally scored a decent pressing. Be warned, there are a lot of noisy and dirty pressings floating around. If you strike good one, then you’re on a winner.

Bakithi Kumalo really shines on this pressing. The bottom end is rich and full. Easily one of the best sounding records in my collection.

This is a fantastic sounding pressing, at least the equal of an original, if not better.

The album was very well recorded at some of the best studios in the world at the time - dynamics are great; the music rises and falls with amazing control, with deep bass and defined top range. Best of all, the vinyl is CD-level quiet, but this ALL-ANALOG reissue is THE one to get!

Absolutely incredible! And for $25, it is a steal. I love Paul Simon, and this may be my favorite album of all of his career (including with Garfunkel).
BTW, If someone knows the bass player's phone number, please share, because I want to learn from him!

Went to download it, and the Remixes album showed up.. shame, but I'll just have to get this on CD too! This is an amazing pressing.
