This is a clean domestic London stereo original pressing that comes complete with the poster and the cool lilac inner sleeve. It's one of the quieter early copies I can remember hearing in ages. Surface noise is usually an issue for this album in my experience, but this copy plays like a champ. I have a really hard time picking my favorite out of the Stones' classic run but it's pretty hard to argue with the set of songs here. I mean... Gimmie Shelter Love In Vain, Midnight Rambler, You Can't Always Get What You Want? Count me in. This is a solid sounding copy with clean, smooth sound -- you can crank the levels and it doesn't get gritty or edgy. And cranking the levels is EXACTLY what I want to do for Let It Bleed.
Vinyl: VG+ (a few light marks that do not affect play)
Cover: EX (one of the nicest I've seen for this album, smallest nick on top seam)
Play notes: Good sound and plays about as quiet as they come!
