This is a 1969 Elektra Red Label (large E) pressing of Love's classic debut with a stereo sticker on the cover. It's brutally tough to find originals that play quietly, so those of you who can't stand surface noise should find this one very enjoyable. It also sounds quite good, very rich and full-bodied with the kind of punchy bottom end that really brings this album to life. Just check out My Little Red Book and you'll see what I mean! Some later pressings are too flat sounding to let that song work its magic, but this one doesn't have any trouble at all.
