    Just a quick FYI - great presentation, the records do sound great, I was very excited playing this for the first time. Then I put on Side B and it got to "Never As Good As the First Time"... and it's a remix.

      Sounds pretty good to me. Better than the digital versions for sure.

        this edition sounds fantastic, nearly to reference ! As good as Daft Punks "Random Acces Memories" , Fleetwood Mac "Rumors" and Michael Jacksons "Thriller" Got the 1/2 Speed mastering from Abbey Road - look for mark in the runout groove

          sounds beautiful except but a couple pops and like a tattoo,pearls,paradise sounds scratchy and the vocals are bad ....anyone else have this issue? I paid 25$ and would say it was worth it still....I wouldn't pay more though !

            Let’s give a quick shout-out to Sade and Brad Pitt

              This is one of my best sounding albums. So much fidelity. Definitely can’t wait to show off this one.

                1/2 Abbey Road etched on both records but it’s actually Sade. Strange…

                  I can confirm the Target mis-listing on this... 1/2 Abbey Road pressing just showed up. I would hurry and take advantage of this!

                    Target currently has this available online for $25. Some of the reviews on that listing say it tends to go in and out of stock frequently. "If you can add this record to your cart, do it while you can!!"

                    EDIT: I just received the record and it’s actually the 1/2 speed Abbey Road master!!! Grab it from Target quick!

                      This pressing sounds absolutely Perfect on my system. Beginning to end every side. I Did detect a slight distortion on the VERY last track on Side D, but frankly that’s the only song on the whole set that I can “take or leave it”. Never heard it anyway. Every other song across all sides play perfectly. So this distortion thing others mention must be a sporadic pressing issue. I guess I got lucky! Playing on a Fluance RT-85, acrylic platter, Ortofon Blue cart, Fully restored vintage Pioneer SX-750 with Fluance XL8F towers and a Fluance 10” sub to match. Sounds incredible! Plus!… I Love Sade! I mean I’ve loved her since 1985. That voice, that elegant exotic beauty. That comes through in her music. Soothes the soul. And her band is Awesome. Very happy with this compilation. I had this when it fist came out on cd in the 90’s. FAR superior sound on vinyl!
