This is a beautifully clean and sonically impressive UK Original polydor copy. I'e played a ton of these over the years and it's always a treat when you get a strong one like this. The sound is absolutely luxe -- almost decadently rich and full-bodied with real texture to all the voices and instruments. On top of that the vinyl plays very quietly. I'd put this up against just about any copy out there and guess it could handle its business.
5 stars Allmusic: "Avalon shimmers with elegance in both its music and its lyrics."
