- A STUNNING sounding copy and the first to hit the site in many years — Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound throughout
- These sides are dripping with Analog magic — transparent, sweet and rich from beginning to end and the bass is especially meaty and well-defined

It’s communicating the Musical Values of the material. This Hot Stamper copy brings Andrew Gold’s music to LIFE.
