    This thread would like to talk exclusively about the quality of the first vinyl edition made in England of this masterpiece; copy I own has marked pressing defects that compromise sound quality, especially by a marked background noise. Does anyone have the same experience with this rare first press? ...and above all: does anyone have a perfect sounding (or semi-perfect...) first record edition?

    Really many thanks!

    From what I can see on Discogs, it appears that there were two versions of the first press - one which had A1/B1/C1/D1 matrix numbers, and one with just A/B/C/D matrix numbers. I need to check which one I have (will do so tonight), but what I can say is that mine plays flawlessly.

    Thanks.
    Maybe it's just an urban legend, but it seems that the first (or so...) record editions of this album have many pressing flaws...
