    I bought this version hoping it was all analog, unfortunately it is not. With that out of the way this is among my best sounding "digitally' cut records. The sound is smooth and natural. I am unsure where this was pressed but my copy was dead silent and perfectly flat. The pressing quality reminds me of old school Japanese vinyl and that's a very good thing. Overall a very good sounding release. The jacket is a heavier stock cardboard then we usually get these days and that is much appreciated. I'm a bit disappointed in the printing quality of the jacket. It's clearly sourced from a relatively low res scan. I also would like to mention the Columbia label is a very light pink not red as shown. Despite not being cut (directly) from the master tapes I have to say this is a good reissue overall. If a digitally cut version of this album sounds this good then I can only imagine what an all analog version would sound like...

      Absolutely killer record & killer reissue. Great sounding, quiet and thick cardboard.

      Always get the pressing from the country of origin if you can, it’s more faithful.

        This is re released on 10 August 2022 -

        Don't give in to scalper prices here

        and don't worry it will be repressed forever at least every year or two. this is the 6th repress of the Japanese version re:vinyl

          Just WONDERFUL. This is pressed in the best possible way, the package is thick and quality. This, Funky Stuff and High-Flying are my favorite reissues of the past 5 years.

            Buyers Beware !! In the listings one of the sellers is trying to pass off the unofficial Klimt version as Columbia, check the listing details and ask for pictures before you buy !!!

              Clearly one of the finest sounding albums in my collection. Also a favorite.

                Fantastic funky record. I'm super pleased with the pressing quality.
