This is an absolute knockout of a copy, a domestic MCA original that was clearly superior to the others I played it against. I've been doing regular Steely Dan shootouts for over a dozen years, yet I'm still knocked out when I hear a copy like this. The sound is superb -- big, rich full, punchy, and clear. Side one plays very quietly, side two has a touch of light surface noise behind the music. Steely Dan albums are always well-recorded, but a copy like this really kicks things up a notch. And with a band that sweats the recording quality as much as these guys do, a little bit extra in terms of sound quality goes a long way!
Cover: VG+ (light creases)
Play notes: Incredible sound and mostly quiet vinyl. A knockout!
