    I've a decent VG copy of this pressing. It really does sound fabulous.

      Got this very clean sounding older copy for just six bucks today. Listening now and it's a nice solid pressing, good punchy drums and plenty of lows.

      Highlights here are "Across the Universe", "Let It Be", "The Long And Winding Road", and "Get Back". Brilliant writing by these masters. Too bad it was not to last.

        I actually picked up this first pressing the other day at my friend's antique store. The reason? Watching "Get Back" on Disney+. So, I put on Abbey Road, then this (since both albums seem to have quite a few songs featured in this wonderful documentary. Cleaned them up really well and they sound so good!

                  Is this pressing a first pressing of the album? I'm pretty sure that it is, but I'm not 100% positive.
                  • edwardramos2497's avatar
                    While I enjoy the album as a whole, I can agree with some of the criticisms of the album. To begin with, Harrison's two songs are subpar. He must of been saving his best work for "Abbey Road". Also, Lennon barely contributes to the album. "Dig a Pony" is really the only song he wrote for the album. "Across the Universe" was written a year or so before the Let it Be sessions and feels like it was added to the album to fill out space. Don't get me wrong, "Across the Universe" is a fantastic song and is probably one of the best on the record. But it almost feels like Lennon got this song of the shelf since it was collecting dust. Another Lennon lead song, "One After 909" is a song from the Beatles earlier years. Great song, it is certainly fun to listen, but if it were left off the album, I wouldn't like the album any less. Finally, we get no Ringo songs. A Beatles album doesn't feel complete without Ringo singing a tune or two. Honestly, we could have thrown away "Dig It" and "Maggie May" and replaced it with a Ringo tune. As I mentioned, I have a soft spot for the album but its not without its fair share of criticism.
