This is a super nice domestic Atco Plum & Gold label pressing with wonderful sound and clean vinyl. The sound here is much better than I'm used to hearing for this album, I am forever on the search for killer copies but so many I've played have left me kind of cold. I've had decently luck with UK pressings which tend to be a bit smoother, but something about this American one floored me. It's substantially cleaner, clearer, richer, and fuller than I'm used to hearing. This is easily one of the most enjoyable copies I've played, and it gave me a new appreciation for this classic. That's the power of a great pressing!
4 stars Allmusic: "Wheels Of Fire is indeed filled with Cream's very best work, since it also captures the fury and invention (and indulgence) of the band at its peak on the stage and in the studio"
Vinyl: VG+ (mostly EX with a superficial mark on side three that does not play)
Cover: VG+(very nice, just a little light wear)
Play notes: Big and powerful sound, one of the better copies I've played and quiet to boot!
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
