      This album is very special to my teen years.This album in a first press USA Elektra was shockingly very rare as most people, including myself, bought this on cd or cassette when it came out so that's why its so rare.Yes I had to have the original first pressing as Im funny about that and I admit I was blown away with hearing this on vinyl!And more than any other I can say as I've heard it only digitally for decades.It was very warm and crisp, I was so satisfied I want another copy in better condition as my copy I just bought has been loved many times.If you find this USA Elektra first pressing at a decent price GET IT and quick!

        Best pressing tied with 2008 Warner/ Universal box set. Has better bottom end than 2008 box set but everything else is comparable. And I love the 2008 box set because it has a very clean sound with magnificent bass. This does too. There’s just something slightly better about it but they’re both really solid pressings. If you’re willing to pay a little extra get this, otherwise get the 2008 box set, especially if it’s at a good price. They’re both cool.

          Always been a fan of the massive sound on this album, but it’s made even better on vinyl. I haven’t owned any other versions, but this pressing sounds spectacular on my system!
