        Sound wise this and naturally the original UK press both are great. Not overly loud or intrusive. Rather inticing like the interesting music itself. Good control even when the soundstage fills up with performances. Nice use of brightness as well as low end, not getting sibilant or sloppy. Just very well rounded and pleasing, on quiet vinyl too none the less.
        Cant fault this old goodie, an original UK is a safe bet!
