This is an absolutely killer Columbia double LP first press with 1A stampers on all four sides. I can't recall the last time I had a copy quite this impressive -- this one did everything I hoped for and then some. It's very rich and warm sounding with nice texture to the brass. There's excellent separation between the parts and a natural sense of space, with more of an open quality than I've heard on other copies. The vinyl plays super quietly. This is a superb keeper copy that you'll never have to sweat over upgrading -- this IS the upgrade.
Vinyl: EX (small writing on side one label)
Cover: VG (ringwear, wear around edges)
Play notes: An amazing sounding copy with very quiet vinyl. A keeper!
