    Magnificent, timeless record! ✨ And you can twist and turn it however you want. This is the only release that will give you the full enjoyment of what could come close to an audiophile listening experience if you can obtain this extremely rare, 🇨🇦 Canada-only 12-inch version in at least near-mint condition.

    Anything less is guaranteed to disappoint, as this particular record is very unforgivable, having been pressed on relatively light-weight vinyl and recorded relatively low. To be clear: That's not bad per se. Quite the opposite!

    In particular Candido's grandiose "Thousand Finger Man" on the flip-side benefits enormously from an audibly higher resolution thanks to the maxi-single format with wider grooves. Only on this original Canadian 🇨🇦 pressing, the song got this wonderfully large soundstage by maintaining also a high level of complete tonality, as well as offering musical detail (instruments) without sounding ever compressed.

    I guess that's what vinyl fanatics mean when they compare their favorite medium, vinyl, to CDs, for example 😉.

    ☝️However, this also proves its greatest weakness here: Every little fingerprint, hairpin scratch or slight friction on the record creates a clearly audible crackle in the background, which can be quite annoying, especially in the amazing, longer intro part of the song.

    Looking at the sales history of this record, I can't imagine that all the people who bought a VG+ copy for a lot of money were ultimately happy with it.

    So make sure the copy you want to buy is in top condition! Don't compromise, no matter how rare and how much you want a record 😊👍.

        Just got the repress... It didn't sound that great to me. Sounded really flat and the lows were overwhelming. What are others thoughts?

          Oye still has repress in as of this afternoon.
          Terrific sounding record that's still going to jam in another 40 years.
