I have been listening to this album since its release in '94. It is a timeless classic. My previous copies have been on CD and I have listened the album for hundreds, if not thousands, of hours. Wonder Women S1 Full Download.
I had no idea how much musicality was missing from the CD! This LP was remastered from the analog tapes and there is so much more detail and nuance that it was like listening to it for the first time. At one point I heard someone inhale during one of the tracks, something I never heard on the CD. The entirety of the album, even with a modest system, sounds like it is being performed right there in the room. It is difficult to find fault with the pressing. As beercanchicken said, it would be better if it were gate-fold for the two LPs.
It is a small gripe considering how overwhelmingly impressive this pressing is.
