1. The Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs pressing has the midrange clarity across the spectrum. This is a true guitar oriented recording and it gives both guitar and vocal a clarity unheard of in the other pressings succeeding this one.

2. The German pressing has the bass that's accentuated.

3. The US promo white label with white cover.

4. The Uk pressing

5. The US commercial release, balanced but lacking the midrange clarity of the MFSL.

6. The Japanese pressing, low bass and high treble.

7. The yellow vinyl MUSIC ON VINYL distributed reissue... VERY bass heavy.
