This is a Minty Elektra Red Label LP with two AMAZING sounding sides! Typical copies are dull and thin sounding, making Judy Blue Eyes’ beautiful voice sound honky and weak like she has a head cold. This copy is the remedy!
It has rich, full-bodied sound with the sweetest highs and tons of ambience, especially around the guitars and bass. Most importantly, there is virtually NO STRAIN on the her vocals, which is extremely rare.
Out of the three labels we listened to for this shootout, nothing could compare to this Red Label. The Gold Labels could have some sweet, musical qualities to them, but were consistently dull and lifeless. Out of the multiple Butterfly Labels we listened to, we could not find one that didn’t sound like a bad cassette. This Red Label was by far the best sounding copy of Judy Collins #3 we’ve EVER HEARD!
