man these comments are so irrational. is GZ a perfect pressing plant? no. but optimal, QRP, RTI, pallas, and all those other "great" pressing plants also have bad days, especially now that every pressing plant is absolutely SLAMMED with business. have... See full review

Takt Direct
posted a review of Takt Direct. 7 months ago
if you send lacquers to takt direct for plating and pressing, you might as well throw them in the garbage. pressing quality is fine (though their discs need a solid cleaning to eliminate the light surface noise) but the plating is awful. everything... See full review

United Record Pressing

to be fair, i've seen a few other united pressings done before 2020 that don't have the etched U, but i've also seen some discogs listings for newer releases that have the etched U again. i knew specifically about the 'rough and rowdy ways' situation... See full review

i doubt an official release is coming any time soon, but you could always rip some files of the cassette audio and get a bootleg done by kunaki. seems like the best we can do, sadly

if i can find a high quality cassette... See full review

yeah, i thought the reissue would have the massive book like the original but i guess not, disappointing but it's still nice that i'll own a copy of this album. i wish they'd do a vinyl release though.

i've had optimal media pressings before that are called "neon orange" but look like neon pink, so this is normal.

i honestly think that most people complaining about the GZ pressing didn't actually buy this set, and told everyone else to avoid it based off of prior bad experiences with their pressings. i've had typically great pressings from GZ actually, so... See full review

lower quality jacket scans, different runouts, plus the optimal pressing and packaging is easy to tell.

"limited" all depends on the demand. 'when we all fall asleep' sold 176k vinyl units last year. in comparison, 17k of this live album qualifies as "limited."

JPC[.de] is a german online record retailer that stocks most current EU pressings. their packing is excellent and the shipping isn’t terribly expensive (dhl transferred to USPS). ordering there probably ends up at $40 shipped for this one dylan album.

both pressings are basically the same. same mastering, pressing, packaging, etc. probably the only difference is the copyright information.
