Notes

Half-speed mastering by Jack Hunt, J.V.C. Cutting Center.

Black Bar at the top edge of the front cover has text inside that reads: "Super Disk Featuring Superior Quality Pressings, Extended Dynamic Range; Cut Half-Speed From The Original Analog Master:"

LP housed in a anti-static sleeve.

Unlike early pressings, this reissue contains the studio versions of "Sweet Caroline" and "Holly Holy." Artwork duplicates the original vinyl release so the timings listed on back cover are incorrect: "Sweet Caroline" runs 3:31 (not 4:30) and "Holly Holy" runs 4:39 (not 3:20).

    This is a stellar pressing. If you like Neil Diamond, seek this pressing out. The bonus is because it contains the two songs that were live on all the other pressings. The studio versions are so much better.

      Not only does this half-speed issue trump original copies for sound quality, but it also contains the studio versions of "Sweet Caroline" and "Holly Holy," rather than the live ones used on original MCA pressings. A big step up all around!
