    The stamper on this is the first pressing, AB-1006 re3, @insidious meme told me. This pressing sounds glorious, having heard it in modest and megabuck systems. Some vinyl is just like that. Like Mercury Living Presence or RCA Living Stereo before Dynagroove.

    This is what's kind of amazing about a really fantastic recording on vinyl. Somehow, it will transcend whatever system you put it on and just be great. Sure the truly fantastic system wrings more out of it, but a modest system can't hold it back.

    Not sure if the NAshville Skyline was a fold down, I think I was listening to that mix in cassette, too, now that I think about it. I remember wearing it out, then buying the vinyl, and surprised by the mix.

    I have to start digging out my jazz pressings in the house somewhere, now that the rig lives again. My most favorite pressings for some of these took me years to find, I remember. Still have to find a decent deep groove Sidewinder, though.

    The Sony Dylan mono collection stops at JWH, as do the MFSL mono reissues. I suspect any Nashville Skyline mono mix is a fold down, otherwise it would be included in those releases.

    I'm curious if any of you guys listen to Blackfield. I'd preordered their new album (the 180g version, not the picture disc) and the release got pushed twice. Its close to the ship date now but there's a leaked version online and I havent heard it yet. Want this to be my first new album listened for the first time on vinyl experience :)

    I ran into a problem. My turntable is too fast. IDK why. I took out all the junk, but I left the original motor and placement, the original belt, and the original platter. It may have been too fast before though IDK, I didn't really use it. That's a shame. Not sure if there is any way to slow it.

    Does your table run at both 45RPM and 33RPM? Maybe you're playing a 33 record at 45?

    it does, but it's on 33. When I switch it goes faster. And it's just a little too fast. A 4:23 song was 4:00.
    took Me a little bit to notice
