POSTER AND POSTCARD EXCELLENT MINUS, INNER SLEEVE EXCELLENT MINUS WITH NO SEAM SPLITS. NO MARKS OR SCRATCHES, JUST A COUPLE OF BARELY NOTICEABLE HAIRLINES. D ISC DOES NOT LOOK PLAYED MORE THAN ONCE OR TWICE, IF THAT.First and early pressings are pressed from the first generation lacquers and stampers. They usually sound vastly superior to later issues/re-issues (which, in recent times, are often pressed from whatever'best' tapes or digital sources are currently available) - many so-called'audiophile' new 180g pressings are cut from hi-res digital sources. Essentially an expensive CD pressed on vinyl. Why experience the worse elements of both formats? These are just High Maintenance CDs, with mid-ranges so cloaked with a veil as to sound smeared. They are nearly always compressed with murky transients and a general lifelessness in the overall sound.
There are exceptions where re-masters/re-presses outshine the original issues, but they are exceptions and not the norm. First or early pressings nearly always have more immediacy, presence and dynamics. The sound staging is wider. Subtle instrument nuances are better placed with more spacious textures.
Balances are firmer in the bottom end with a far-tighter bass. Upper-mid ranges shine without harshness, and the overall depth is more immersive.
On first and early pressings, the music tends to sound more'alive' and vibrant. The physics of sound energy is hard to clarify and write about from a listening perspective, but the best we can describe it is to say that you can'hear' what the mixing and mastering engineers wanted you to hear when they first recorded the music.
