Single-sided 12 inch vinyl in an archival library jacket. Expertly cut for vinyl by Paul Gold, from a specially prepared 24 bit, 88.2kHz master transferred from the original analog tapes via a modified Studer transport with custom tube repro electronics. No limiting or other digital tomfoolery.
We consider this to be the definitive version of this album. Yes we are nerds.
Includes a CD version of the same material with further sonic optimizations for the CD format.
