This is a super clean domestic Backstreet Records promo pressing mastered at Sterling that comes complete with the thick, glossy inner.. These tend to sound very good, but some copies take things to an even higher level and this one certainly did all I could ask of it. The sound is really clean, clear, and punchy -- basically the traits that I think bring out the best in Petty's music. "The Waiting" is a big favorite on here and WOW does it sound good on here.
4 1/2 stars Allmusic: "A tremendous set of songs and a unified sound that makes it one of Petty's finest records."
Vinyl: EX (very clean)
Cover: VG+ (promo stamp, light wear)
Play notes: Sounds exceptionally good and plays quietly
