This vinyl sounds perfect. Liquid smooth is the only way to describe it. There doesn't seem to be any surface noise, and somehow even ticks/pops have shied away. This is a spectacular pressing.
I don't suppose anyone needs a review of this album, so I'll be brief. The two (King/Vaughan) jam together for the whole album, while Albert King does all the singing. There are a few interludes where King and Vaughan talk between songs (mostly King does the talking). As you can imagine, the guitar playing is incredible.
This is an awesome album. I was completely transfixed from start to finish, except when the talking parts were interjected - nice to hear these guys chat, but it broke the spell of the whole album. Of course, this is a minor issue and I don't count it in my rating of the album.
As recommended as it gets for any album I have heard. Everything is clicking on this one - the performance is spectacular and the sound quality is perfect.
