Gorgeous Sound. Bad Pressing.

I love the mastering of this issue. Unfortunately, my copy suffers from no fill distortions that ruin the experience. Maybe you'll be lucky and get a good one. I waited too long to listen and could not return it.

Very Quiet Vinyl Conveys Pure Sound

I just spun this LP last night. The vinyl is very quiet and the sounds comes off it nice, like butter. The soundstage is very wide. I am curious how the mastering compares with the original LP or even a CD. Coltrane's sax is pretty far to right speaker. I am also curious about any eq adjustments. Would enjoy reading comments from folks who can make this comparison.
