    I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this album. Clean, pure sound. Good bass. Honestly amazing stuff.

      Picked up used, the copy I got has a ton of scratches and dirt but the music quality is top notch. A quick wet clean improved the sound a tad. I almost don't care how scuffed mine is because it really does sound that good.

        This pressing is very much like the 1st U.S. pressing in both looks and sound. I have both and they are excellent records. If you can’t find the first U.S. pressing, this can be had cheaper and is a great second choice.

          Nice clean pressing and this music still makes my toe tap after 40 years.
