This is a Reprise White Label Promo copy of Randy Newman's debut album. I'm a huge fan of this album which has some really great songs, including "Love Story," "Living Without You," "The Beehive State" and more. The sound here is excellent -- very natural -- and the vinyl plays with just light to moderate surface noise behind the music. There are no repeating ticks nor anything that ever gets out in front. I'm fairly sensitive to surface noise but this is definitely a copy I could live with.
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "This was an audacious first album by a major, if extremely quirky, talent."
Vinyl: EX (name and address stamp on labels)
Cover: VG (ringwear, filing sticker, small tape around spine, name/address stamp on back, writing on back)
Play notes: Great sound, light to moderate noise behind music
