    • Comments:   I’d never heard this album prior to adding it to an order from a Discogs seller to make the most out of the postage rates. It’s quite varied stylistically, with elements of rock, pop, jazz and prog. It also gets better and better with every listen. As for the sound quality, this is a great example of an original pressing that gets it right. This is the US pressing which was cut by Lee Hulko at Sterling Sound (“LH” and “STERLING” marked in the runout area). It can be found easily for a few dollars and is worth tracking down. It has that 70’s warmth that I love with plenty of detail as well, along with a pretty cool sleeve design.

Do you have this pressing? If so, what do you think? Do you have a different pressing? How is it? Please feel free to comment.
