This is a very clean Atlantic domestic original pressed at Monarch with RL in the dead wax. It comes complete with the lyric inner sleeve. The sound is strong throughout and the vinyl plays unusually quietly. I've played literally hundreds of copies and finding one that can get through The Rain Song and No Quarter without surface issues has always been a challenge, but this one does an amazing job. If I were to get deep with it and compare a dozen good pressings I'd probably be able to find one that sounded even better, but this one would certainly be in the upper tier. If you're a boss level audiophile who only wants the very best, you can always hit me up directly for those ultimate pressings (they don't come cheap), but this one would make most people very happy and was certainly a blast to play just now as I listed it.
Vinyl: EX (very clean)
Cover: VG+ (minor wear on spine, faint price tag residue, solid all around)
Play notes: Plays quieter than most copies and sounds very good
