Among the best I've heard

I've been on a record-buying binge in the last few months, and quite simply, this is one of the best pressings I've heard out of the 250-300 albums I've purchased---the clarity, imaging, power and crispness are outstanding.

Will make a believer out of anyone who doesn't believe in half speed. The best pressing of this I've ever heard.

Grundman and Gray proven wrong about half-speed masters

Reviewer: Mark Swinford
The sound quality of this half-speed master sounds full and rich -- very dynamic, lots of real analog punch! Probably better than if Grundman or Gray were to put out the same title on a 45 RPM version -- who both openly pooh-pooh half-speed mastering. This is the best sounding vinyl version I've ever heard of this title.
