This is a wildly impressive Columbia White Label Promo pressing. When I'm doing shootouts for this album, I'm looking for copies with powerful dynamics, because hearing this thing go from quiet to loud is one of the main thrills of this recording. This one absolutely kills on that note, and it's also super transparent with excellent clarity. The drums sound especially good here, they're recorded to go around the room at times and on a copy like this it's an absolute treat.
4 stars Allmusic: "Romantic Warrior is the sound of a mature band at the top of its game."
Cover: VG+ (light wear spine and edges, promo stamp on back)
Play notes: Sounds amazing, plays mostly quietly, some light background noise in a few quieter parts)
