Interesting. I still have my Mobile Fidelity Original Master vinyl, which of course sounds fantastic. I wonder how it will compare to that?

Hello Gary,
I have the original issue (worn out) the Remastered CD (its ok sounding) and the MOFI 1/2 speed and it totally rocks.
Since this is one of my all time favorite LP's I had no problem deciding to get the Classic Record reissue.
Now I can not back this up but, apparently this particular reissue is from Ian Anderson's personal master tape and from what I have heard he has never let anyone touch it.
But again I can not swear by it but it's just what I heard.
From my experience so far all of my Led Zeppelin Classic Records reissues cut with their all tube cutting system they all sound amazing compared to my originals issues.
I would expect that this version will surpass the MOFI issue especially since its a 1S pressing.
BTW I'm sure your aware that our MOFI Aqualung albums are now worth a pretty penny these days but I will never sell mine.
