I deal in a lot of records (old and new) and I like to rip them to digital. I typically need to clean up some pops, or EQ the recording for optimum listening, even when they're Mint. But this pressing was so clean and mastered so well that it sounded better than anything I've ever ripped from vinyl before. It is just as good as the digital versions I own. For a timeless album, this is a timeless pressing. Hope you enjoy yours as much as I'm enjoying mine!
