This is a ridiculously clean domestic Captiol original pressing, definitely one of the nicest copies I've seen. On top of that, it was clearly the best sounding of the small stack of copies I tested out in the process of getting one up on the site. The sound is very rich and clean with less grit and grain than I heard elsewhere. It's also more open and transparent with really nice ambiance around the instruments. I found it a thoroughly enjoyable listen and can't recall hearing a much better copy.

4 stars Allmusic: "Wild Honey had a looser, funkier feel than any previous Beach Boys effort, at times approaching a kind of bleached-out white soul."


Vinyl: Near Mint
Cover: VG+ (faint ringwear, light foxing/discoloration on back, light crease)
Play notes: Excellent sounding copy, beat a small stack. Plays quietly.
