This KILLER British DJM Original pressing with A1/B2 stampers is all around one of the nicest copies I've ever had the privilege of playing. The sound is simply stunning and the vinyl plays pretty quietly, something that is almost never the case for this album. The cover has the 12 page lyric booklet bound in and in gorgeous shape. I pick these any time I see them stateside but usually have to pay good dough to have them shipped from overseas; more often than not the copies are disappointing, noisy, or (most likely) both. I'm asking a lot of dough for this one, but you might up spending this much (plus a few hour of your time) to track one down that's anywhere near as impressive as this.
Allmusic gives the album 5 stars and calls it Elton and Bernie's "most ambitious record to date".
Vinyl: EX (one superficial hairline on last song that does not affect play)
Play notes: Super nice all around, sounds good, plays quietly
