This is a British Purple Records original pressing featuring members of Deep Purple teaming up with the London Symphony Orchestra. The sound is superb, and unlike many records like this both the rock parts and the orchestral parts sound natural. This copy with 1U/1U stampers has some of the better sound I've ever heard for this one, and anyone who digs this kind of rock/classical crossover -- or is just a massive Deep Purple fan -- will certainly find a lot to like here. The vinyl plays mostly quietly with a touch of light background noise at times.
Vinyl: EX (super clean)
Cover: VG+ (nice, textured gatefold)
Play notes: Great sound and quiet vinyl -- a powerhouse for this type of recording
