This French 1981 remaster of the 1958 concert sounds tremendous. A great job on every track!

Totally - - this is frighteningly good. This is PRECISELY why I returned a MoFi of Communique. I have the original 1979 U.S. Jacksonville pressing of that album. And I honestly think it sounds better than the MoFi.

Outstanding release here - - right from the first track the musicians have a real energy and vibe.

Great release here. To see it all spinning on transparent stock is also a nice touch.

I first bought this as digital files in 2013. Hearing this on vinyl in 2021 is a revelation.

Mine sounds great. Sounds rather different to any of the CD releases I've heard of this.

Extremely helpful, thanks. My local store also has NTS 1 and 3, missing 2 and 4. I think I'll pick up those first two.

Decided to pick this up earlier this year. It's an astonishing pressing with remarkable bass, I mean SERIOUS bass, evident tape hiss (Jenkinson recorded most of his stuff on tape prior to around 2001/02 according to an interview) which only adds to... See full review

I got it yesterday at my local store luckily (Toronto). I agree completely. I thought 'oh it'll just be some instrumentals and added tracks no biggie.' Nope! It's like The Fragile: Re-Transformed, Re-Born, or something similar. Definitely makes me... See full review

Ok, last night I compared this exact release of this album to the MoFi edition. I found no discernible differences. Absolutely gorgeous dynamics here. Master-tape quality for sure. If you find one, GRAB one. Plus the embossed enveloped is a nice... See full review

This one sounds amazing. Huge spaciousness and depth to the sound.

This Canadian pressing sounds, to my ears, incredible. The detail, dynamic range, and "depth" of the mix is quite something. Good stuff.

Finally!! I've been listening to some DM records and have been thinking what is this "shrill" effect on Dave's vocals sometimes?! Turns out I'm not the only one. Listening through headphones somewhat alleviates the process for me (turntable > amp > headphones) See full review

And indeed I DID find one in Toronto, right at my local store. I agree fully here - - I was able to find a nearly mint copy and it does sound great for sure.

Mine sounds good as well. Fairly spacious sound. I only have the original CD version to compare with here but I prefer this vinyl.

My copy sounds amazing, this is the ONLY Mofi release I have (I was lucky enough to pick it up at a local store in Toronto). A tiny bit of surface noise on LP 2, Side 2 for me. Other than that pretty stellar.
