This is a really nice '70s UK Parlophone Stereo pressing. I don't come across a ton of clean British Beatles originals and am not a fan of the domestic Capitol pressings, but the best of these later pressings can provide sound that's right up there with anything. I'd certainly take a copy like this over any of the modern reissues, though I'm sure some would disagree. To me, it's just closer to the real thing. This one's quite good -- clean, clear, punchy, and very natural on the acoustic guitars that are at the heart of this album.
5 stars on Allmusic, which should surprise no one!
