    Very good sound quality on this release. Pressing is lovely too. Still going to buy a UK original release of this album so i can see which i prefer more. I mean really this German original pressing sounds very lovely.
    I made two needledrops of a couple tracks from this vinyl record - You can find them on the right side in the videos, under the name of:
    The Alan Parsons Project - Shadow Of A Lonely Man (Pyramid) (1978 German Vinyl)
    The Alan Parsons Project - In The Lap Of The Gods (Pyramid) (1978 German Vinyl)
