This is an Original Capitol Green Label pressing with Robert Ludwig's initials on both sides. It's well known that Bob Ludwig's cuts for this album (and so many others) are the ones with the best sound, and this copy completely delivers in that sense. The secret's been out for years and it can be tricky to find a clean one, another big issue is that even the cleanest copies tend to play with substantial surface noise. I've done a ton of shootouts for this album and this copy is definitely on the quieter end of things - a touch of noise between tracks and during intros / outros but never anything that overpowers the music. One of the all-time great classic rock albums and a killer copy like this one really kicks things up a notch.

Vinyl: VG+ (superficial wear only)
Cover: VG+ (minor corner and edge wear, light marks on back)
Play notes: Mostly quiet, light surface noise behind some quieter passages in Echoes. A very tough album to find any quieter and the sound here is great!
