This is a GORGEOUS domestic original Reprise White Label Promo pressing with truly beautiful sound. One of those records I attempted to casually grade and ended up just sitting there in its spell. Emmylou Harris is all over the record and every time she comes in, it's like magic. The vocals sound amazing on this copy but really every element is on point. The song "Hearts On Fire" is an absolute KNOCKOUT on this copy. I'm pretty sure this record was unplayed until I got my filthy hands on it, it required a little surgery to even fit onto the spindle. The vinyl is super quiet throughout.
5 stars Allmusic: "One would be hard pressed to name an artist who made an album this strong only a few weeks before their death -- or at any time of their life, for that matter."
Vinyl: EX (tiny edge warp that has no affect on play)
Cover: VG+ (very solid with light wear on edges, small nick next to album title)
Play notes: Absolutely gorgeous sound and quiet vinyl
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).
