Sonic Grade: F
A Hall of Shame pressing.
Yet another murky, smeary Audiophile Piece of Trash from the mastering lathe of the formerly brilliant Doug Sax. He used to cut the best sounding records in the world. Then he started working for Analogue Productions and never cut a good record again as far as I know.
On this record, in Doug’s defense it’s only fair to point out that he had only dub tapes to work with, which is neither here nor there as these pressings are not worth the dime’s worth of vinyl used to make them.

For those who might not be familiar with Klavier, they are a remastering label like Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs or DCC. They have remastered and released on vinyl a large number of titles taken from the EMI catalog, most of which are long out of print and none of which, to our knowledge, are any good.
