The 710 number (included in the matrix engravings) indicates either an export pressing for Norway, made in Holland or vice versa.

Average vinyl transfer with horrible groove distortion and denoising. Definitely not taken from a master source.

This is a fantastic pressing !!! I am sure the release date (1975) is incorrect, because ABBA didn't use that logo before 1976. I think this version is a repress.

That is VERY bad news, because that vinyl-sourced version sounds horrible...

This is the best-sounding "Arrival" ever !!! Sparkling and very clean sounding, very detailled...simply stunning !!! There is no other vinyl or CD version available which presents this album in such a perfect sound !!!

It's the way it is I think. I never saw another version.

Does this 2010 edition share the same (too loud) mastering as the 2003 edition ?

What about the sound quality ? Is it worth listening ?

Considering the fact that this version is an unofficial release, the sound of the album tracks is far superior here, compared to all official CD versions.
The official remaster has a slightly dull left channel, whilst the later remasters suffer from a ... See full review

Accidently, the same bad-sounding version as on the Leipzig bonus CD was used !!! So the Zeitz vinyl LP version is the only one with a much better sound, taken from a master source.

This pressing doesn't have the original outro after "Hey Joe" (footsteps and closing door).

Has a spelling error in the track list (song 1): IRGRNDWO, IRGENDWANN must be IRGEBDWO, IRGENDWANN !!!

This one is not a wrong mastering, but the initial and original mastering, done by Barry Diament. Not sure who did the more common mastering (with the longer outro), but the one with the fade out at the end of the album was definitely the original ... See full review

If the masters are lost or damaged, a professional vinyl rip of the Greenworld LP or a remaster from the Roadracer CD version would be possible and no problem I think.

It's not a remaster, it's an entirely full remix, done in 1986 or 1987. Unfortunately, the new vinyl version includes that very bad remix, so there is no version out there (except the 1985 original vinyl pressings and the Roadracer Price Killers CD) with ... See full review

This cutting is the worst-sounding ABBA vinyl release I've ever heard...it was pressed by czech factory GZ and I suspect that they also did the cutting. It has horrible distortion noises on the hihats - unlistenable !!! I will sell my copy and listen to ... See full review

On one track of the "Pits Of Utumno" demo, the first 30 seconds are missing...the reason must be a mastering / editing mistake !!!
