- With solid Double Plus (A++) sound throughout, this excellent copy ROCKS like nothing you’ve heard
- MASSIVE, powerful and spacious throughout – this original pressing is big, rich and solid like you won’t believe
- This is one of the few copies we’ve found in a long time that has no bad repeating marks – many of the copies we buy are close to unlistenable on a modern audiophile turntable
- The best copies are stunning Demo Discs – crank it up good and loud and if you have the right system for it you can be sure your audiophile friends will never forget it
- 4 1/2 stars on Allmusic and one of the best sounding hard rock recordings from the era, or, to be honest, from any era
- We’ve recently compiled a list of records we think every audiophile should get to know better, along the lines of “the 1001 records you need to hear before you die,” but with less of an accent on morbidity and more on the joy these amazing audiophile-quality recordings can bring to your life. Red Clay is a good example of a record most audiophiles may not know well but should.
- If you’re a Sludgy Rock fan, this debut album from 1970 is surely a Must Own
- The complete list of titles from 1970 that we’ve reviewed to date can be found here
- We think this is the band’s best sounding album. Roughly 150 other listings for the Best Sounding Album by an Artist or Group (sounds like a Grammy Awards category, doesn’t it?) can be found here.
Back in 2018 we wrote:
This title will surely make the cut next time we update our Top 100 Rock and Pop List. I would go so far as to say that the best copies of this album have sound as good or better than anything I’ve heard all year, and that’s an awful lot of great sounding records, hundreds and hundreds of them.
It did in fact make the Top 100, but to what end? We never have this title in stock! They are just too hard to find in audiophile playing condition.
