This is a very strong British Polydor Super Deluxe early pressing from 1972. It has the same stamper numbers as the first pressings but the credits appear slightly different on the label so we'll go with "early" over "original". The sound is excellent -- very rich and full-bodied with nice extension to the top end. I've heard some of these that sounded a bit dull, but this one handles the highs quite nicely. It's a really nice copy that sounds just right to my ears.
