The gauging is real people! Just brought my copy in NYC from Rock n Soul ..they had a huge stack of copies pricing at 37.99. Check their website for left over copies before paying the scalper prices.

There was an Atlantic 75 series reissue in 2023 that was on clear vinyl. I think the reviewer may have initially conflated to the two versions.
Marcos Valle - Vontade De Rever Você
posted a review of Marcos Valle - Vontade De Rever Você. 8 months ago
This is a great pressing - the vinyl is flat, heavy and quiet.the mastering is very detailed, great separation. This also happens to be a wonderful album with nobody tracks. At 42 years old still sounds contemporary and current. Buy with confidence.

Totally disagree with the preceding comment - This Is Not A Stinker!!!! In fact, God is one of Sault's most focused and realized work. If you have problems with artist expressing faith then you will not like this. However, if this is not a... See full review

Real nice reissue. One of the best snags from RSD 2023. I had this on cd but the vinyl really brings the album back to life. Recommended for the soul heads.

José James - On & On
posted a review of José James - On & On. about 1 year ago
This is a really good cd. Harkens backs to the initial Jose James music that I fell in love with - the Dreamer. This is just as good. Also, the US version is available pretty reasonably, like $12 bucks. Is a vinyl version planned?

Nice sounding digital reissue. Vinyl is flat and heavy and the mastering is not compressed. I have not heard an original press but this fits the bill for now. Also it’s an excellent album from JW’s catalogue.
