    The cover isn't shiny and laminated but it's a bit smoother to the touch than my original Capricorn that I bought still sealed a few years back. Even though the cover might not duplicate the original the sound quality is better than my original. Better than my original MFSL too. IMO if you love this album then buy this.

    How're the MJ fades? Same as the original? Reason I ask is that I've always loved the way part 2 fades in with Berry's solo. We'd already heard it, of course, during the part 1 fade out, but hearing it again ensures that there's no sense of loss.....

    Any other SQ reviews? Do we get the insert included in first USA pressings?

    Thanks.

    No insert but that's OK because the sound quality makes it worthwhile.

    I hope these ABB MoFi issues mean they'll get around to Fillmore East at some point. I keep missing the decently-priced ones in the Classifieds, so a MoFi LP might be my best bet at this point.

    Or PM Clay and Rick, and ask them to be on the lookout for a good pink label. They're extremely helpful fellas.

    Analogue Productions has a Fillmore East coming out soon. My go to copy has been the Classic Records 200g pressing for several years now.

    I am reluctant to buy this even though I love the lp because the Idlewild south mofi was nowhere near as good as the original atco. The reviews here stating this is better than the original...........all I can say is, are you suuuuuure?????????

    Do you think we changed our minds? Everything about it is fantastic, from packaging to the sound. I don't know of a better vinyl version.

    There you go. If you love this album buy it. Or don't.

    Yes, I have 2 1st pressings and a later tan label Capricorn pressing. The new MFSL is better. I'm really happy with it.

    I don't have the MFSL pressing from the 1980s? It goes for too much on Ebay.

    Several years ago I bought a sealed original Capricorn at no small cost to me. I also own the original MFSL release. The new MFSL release is my go to copy now. If this album means anything to you drop the forty bucks and buy it. What else can I say?

    The original Monarch pressings for S/T and Idlewild were better than their respective Mofi reissues. My main focus for me is midrange transparency and tone. Details audiophiles look for is less important, that's why like shinedaddy I'm still a bit reluctant. Between the Dead, Allmans, Stardust, and Miles reissues I haven't been blown away...

    Anyone care to compare this to the new mfsl cd? Yes, I know, but it is possible to compare some sound qualities of a cd vs lp. Just curious, by way of this comparison, if this mfsl lp beats that japanese cd people rave about.

    I'm no audiophile but I've been happy with my recent MFSL purchases.

    If you buy MOFI releases for $30 and more....hate to break it to you but you are an audiophile.

    I've listened to this album for 40 years(no, not in one sitting). Never heard it sound as good as the recent MFSL version. I cannot believe I ever traded in vinyl for CD s.

    I'm listening to the new EAT A PEACH vinyl album from MFSL and wow ... dead quiet vinyl all around and the sound is absolutely marvelous. This is the one, folks. A+.

    Everyone on this thread who has bought this LP have nothing but positive things to say about it.

    I think the 1st two MFSL Allman Brother albums sound decent. They're the not the greatest sounding recordings to begin with. I'm fine with them. Besides, Monarch pressings aren't the easiest to track down.
