    Tom Petty never dissapoints,not with the Heartbreakers or solo,just an outstanding artist in every way,not a bad second in everything this guy did in his lifetime.I was very saddended when he passed away probably by a sort of a mistake.I will cherish his output till the day I die.

      Great sounding vinyl. No hiss, fizz, snaps, crackles, or pops. Really good mix.

        One of TP&THB best. So many iconic songs on one album!

          This pressing sounds incredible. Instant smile when I played it for the first time.

            I agree with the comment about how well this record is mastered. You can crank this one, no problem. Good for system demo. Sound is fantastic.

              This is a really well mastered LP. If you can get a clean copy for a reasonable price snag it

                Mine says "We love you JL" in the wax on side 1. Too cool.

                  Slight variant on my pressing:
                  Matrix / Runout Side A MATCHES one variant listed here:
                  MCA 2445-SS11 EDP M1 SF1 SM4 WE LOVE YOU J.L. 2 STERLING GC

                  Side B does not match any here:
                  MCA 2446-SS11 EDP M1 SF1 SM9 STERLING GC (SM9 w/slash through the S)

                    The etching on Side 1 is their dedication to John Lennon.
