This is an Original Warner Bros. pressing with Sterling stamps in the dead wax, complete with the original inner sleeve. There are a few different domestic original versions and this one is my favorite, it's got the kind of full-bodied sound that I look for on heavy music like this. The vinyl plays quietly with light surface noise between tracks but nothing that gets in front of the music. By the way, if you've made it this far in the listing without stopping to hum the main riff of the title song, you have more willpower than I do. It's just so good. As is Rainbow In The Dark. I rarely see clean ones out in the bins and they usually don't sound quite this good when I do find them. Someone's gonna love this record.
