This is a gorgeous RCA original pressing from 1988 with Sterling stamps in the dead was. The album was famously recorded with one microphone in one day at a church in Toronto, making it a very unique recording. Many copies I've played are marred by substantial surface noise, which really gets in the way of such a delicate recording. This one plays super quietly and sounds very good. It has their famous cover of Sweet Jane and a bunch of other great songs as well. 4 1/2 stars on Allmusic: "It's still remarkable at how timeless it sounds, and its beauty is -- in stark contrast to its presentation -- voluminous and rich, perhaps even eternal."
Cover: VG (Plenty of minor wear but sturdy)
Play notes: Sounds great and plays quietly - a highly enjoyable copy
