You won't regret it. A great pressing of a classic. 

Yup - It's stunning. I have the Classic Records (stereo) 33rpm on it's way, and the MoFi SACD - so hopefully a good split of masterings.

I didn’t buy them today but several weeks ago and they turned up yesterday. Three x Budgie reissues. Two of which I have as Aussie OG pressings and one later album that I’ve only heard now and it’s superb. The incredible Budgie!!

I reckon they sound excellent. I was too busy to do a comparo but intend to this weekend.

An absolute grail. Much conjecture as to which masterings/pressings etc. are the best. By the nature of the hodgepodge recording sessions, it’s never going to be perfect.

 

It’s the best I’ve ever heard it - by far. Took 2 years of searching for a NM I could actually believe that was approaching a reasonable cost. Not many albums I’d go this far for.

Yeah - I had toyed with some of the inexpensive “best version”s (but then people say only certain stampers, or pressing plants etc.) but by the time you ship from the states (usually), one dodgy grading/misinformation and the second one to replace it gets me nearly to what I paid for this, and a new risk. I found it in Oz (just needed that two year’s patience). It’s genuinely one of my favourite albums - ever - so to me one of the few worth going this far for.

By the sound of it (pun intended), you practice strict due diligence. With life habits like that, make sure you teach your children well.

Haha! Yes, before anything comes into this house (and it’s a very, very, very fine house), it has to be the right thing for the right money.
