I have been looking for the original MCA cd and finally scored one. its not here yet so I am not celebrating. took almost 10 years for me to get one. I can't be the only fan of this album. anyone else ? from beginning to end its great, she sounds great too. alot of memories as a kid and she was my first crush. so I am pulling out the album as I havent played it in a while, nor any vinyl. been lazy!!! but for those who look for the best sound, look no further than the original Japan pressing of this album. it is absolutely amazing. dead quiet!!!! smooth, warm, punchy, crystal clear vocals. just a great sounding vinyl. not sure how the original US MCA cd will sound but this album I know will never be beat. if you like or love this album, its well worth your while to go find the original Japan Issue. it will blow you away. here is my copy. dead mint. not a mark, crease or wear anywhere on the cover, vinyl or OBI. I treat it like gold. first time I played it I couldnt believe how quiet and nice it sounded.
