    Fantastic sounding record. Balanced and loud. Much better than the 2008 reissue I have.

        Brilliant example of why original UK copies of UK albums are superior. Fantastic dynamics with loud vinyl

              Just received a copy of this through a seller here. I have no reason to think the seller listed it wrong. Everything checks out to be this release, except I have a slightly different runout.
              A side - Blaire's hand etched | stamped YAX 5063-2 LA
              B side - Blaire's hand etched | stamped YAX 5064-2 TH

                What do you value this LP? I have a similar LP except the label is the same for side one and two.

                  I have this LP with hand etched THIS LR'S SHIT? on the runout of side 1. Otherwise, everything is as usual: BLAIR'S on both sides. What did Chris Blair mean?

                    This is where you need to go for an OG copy. It blows away anything released in the US. Beautiful soundstage.

                      Can anyone tell which Queen LP or cassette sounds better? From what year they began to press thin LPs?
