This is an amazingly clean domestic Elektra Gold Label pressing. It's ridiculously tough to find clean original Love vinyl and in my experience even the nicer looking ones tend to play with some surface noise. This copy is a serious exception. The vinyl plays quieter than I can remember hearing on any original Love pressing. We're huge fans of this band in our house, and we have more copies of this one on our personal shelf than any rational people should. And even so, I was incredibly tempted to file this one away as a "don't sell" because I just don't see the day when I find a quieter copy. But there are too many records in too many rooms here as it is, so I'm going to make the hard call to let someone snag it. The sound itself here is quite good as well; there are probably copies that that take it even further, but you usually have to put up with some level of background noise to get there.
Cover: VG+ (light corner wear but super nice)
Play notes: One of the quietest copies I've heard, very good sound
