Compared to an original version of this album from 1969, this modern vinyl cut from a high resolution digitized version of the original, sounds as good with open clarity and no sense of digital compression. It's a worthy replacement to the original. So, if contemplating whether to dish out 20 bucks for a vinyl cut from a digital original, this is a not a bad purchase. The digitization used DSD type coding for high sampling and nothing of the analogue is lost.
I am not sure it needed to be clear though. A black vinyl would have done me just as well. In fact, the first copy was contaminated with black spots and I had to return for replacement. Can't help thinking Amazon suppliers often try to palm off defective vinyls to the unwary customer.
