    Did you clean it before playing, new LPs have a protective coating on them that might affect playback until cleaned.

    Think Mike may mean a releasing agent that can be sprayed into the press to stop the vinyl sticking

    That's the one, is it not an anti mould agent too

    I've seen it on some LPs that I've played and the needle is covered in it.

    I bought this too (and the Solid Air reissue mentioned by Adam). Both sounded fine to me.

    I can understand why you may be a bit peeved, you are buying withthe belief that you will have an album with optimal sound quality.

    I am quite often surprised when I did out an older pressing thats nothing special, just something that has not been played much. It can be very obvious, even with LPs when the whole process has been done well on analogue all the way through.

    I have an old copy of the Joshua Tree and it sounds great but has some ticks. I bought the heavyweight reissue but its just not the same.

    I guess all you can do is not worry about it until you hear it and then make a decision.

    A proper job would be one that do sound better or at least as good as the original, back to back listening show the flaws of the Abbey
    And then there is the run off length that in the Abbey is 3 times as large
    A given time track cut whit a given amount of dynamics take space reduce the dynamics and it take less space.

    All reissue records are mastered from digital files unless you buy BN -Jazz from Analogue Productions or Music Matters. In fact what you buy is only a CD pressed in vinyl. People want to get ripped off so the industry produces scams they crave...

    That’s utter nonsense. There’s a VAST difference between a 24 bit digital studio master, which is then used to master an LP that will then be cut, and a collection of 16 bit 44.1 AIF CD files.
