    Fwiw, I've looked for the best definitive product version of this seminal album for SQ and come up empty. Apparently, the original issue was a sonic mess, and it just got worse with subsequent issues.

    I think you’re spot on, but they remedied that nicely on Poseidon. On the upside 21st Century Schizoid Man wouldn’t be frontal assault that we know and love. I feel the same way about Aqualung’s title track vocals. :rockon:

    21st century schizoid man is a blast and the rest just allows one to just drift off. Just don't have auto replay engaged or you will look like the cover.

    Bought this LP in Japan in 1983 when I was stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni. Thought it was different than the stateside version. Wasn't for sure until I got back. Great Memory. Thanks for posting.

    I have been a big fan of Procol Harum since late 1960's and did not until recently realize Robin Trower was such a big part of it all. Had not read the covers like I do today.

    Lovely attention to detail from Godspeed You! Black Emperor's album F#A#∞.

    Includes a pressed Canadian penny.
