Yes gorgeous packaging and wonderful sound quality but I still prefer the originals to these. You can see why they call them alternates. Don't ever need to hear a 10 minute version of Almost Cut My Hair again.

Worth every penny, I'm glad they did 1,000,000 of these records, everyone needs to listen to it. I actually love ir for what it is. After listening to so many times the original version, and not wanting to get the boxset that came out recently because I did not want that many CD's, this is incredible. Get one, not for a future price, but the value of the music it has today within itself.

So I have heard both and the US/NA pressing is superior (except for the dish issues) to the Optimal press. I mean its not a big enough difference to drive decision making (this thing sounds insanely good) but i think the bass response in the NA (RTI) pressing is just superior. Slightly deeper grooves perhaps...but, yeah.

This release is well worth the money! Almost Cut My Hair by itself is 10 plus minutes of music that transports you back to a time when the world was a bit edgy and tensions (politically) were running high because of a war that no one wanted (or wanted to be involved in). It's a snapshot of that time and place from a young adult perspective. I can't really find a bad track on the album - they all sound great and go from "mildly different" to "completely different" from the original album. I believe this is something you will want in your collection of CSN&Y! (and to think I almost didn't buy it)

Great sounding LP but...The damn LP is severely 'dished'. Flip it over and the center is sticking up off of the platter. STUPID! Record pressing plants need to slow down and give the vinyl time to cool down after they flatten the hot puck of molten goo. Thank God I have a Wayne's Audio stainless Periphery Ring and an HRS ADL Record Weight that sits on the vinyl and flattens it out. If I did not have a ring and weight I would seriously be done with vinyl these days. Pretty much every new slab of vinyl that I purchase is somehow warped, dished or the spindle hole is drilled slightly off-center. I am talking over the past 10 years now of this vinyl revival. I just recently opened my Fleetwood Mac - RUMOURS Alternate LP from last year's RSD and the same exact thing. Dished/ Reverse Dished depending on what side you are listening to. Bugs the SHIT out of me! But again, GREAT sounding LP otherwise. I just can't stand looking at a warped LP spinning on a $4K turntable. Dana

It’s a wonderful collection of alternative takes. Anyone else get an uneven gatefold? Mine is skewed. No damage though.

Overall a great sounding record. Mine came dished which was a bummer but it doesn't affect play. I'm also curious how this version stack up to the one made in Germany.

So happy with my copy, sound brilliant (helps when the record company press well and place in proper dust covers). Almost cut my hair is worth the vinyl cost alone. So happy to be an owner of this true vinyl gem.

"Helpless" plays just fine here, and so does the rest of this gorgeous looking and gorgeous sounding record.
Now, if only I was able to fit the nice, black poly-lined sleeve that this came with back into the gatefold... :-/

My copy is perfect. No floor noise, clear of pops and ticks. Just sounds dang great.
