Back to Carpenters .....
I have both the white label US press Singles LP and this reissue. The white label is one of my treasured LPs. I just did an A/B. The white label is louder, Karen's voice is tilted upwards prominently over the background. The reissue is tonally more balanced overall with quieter background noise. Both have fine separation of voice and instruments.

IMHO, the white label will play fine only in the better more refined modern systems, while the reissue will play well in most systems. I am happy I have both. I think I will be spinning the reissue more frequently as the orchestrations give a fresh take on my old favorites.

Wonder if the reissue is better than the Metallica 1991 release. The vinyl sounds a bit like CD.

Imho, I think this Metallica album is one of the best recorded LP in my collection. Mine I think is the 1991 vertigo issue.

V hard to find the 1991 with insane prices. Any idea how close is the re-issue?

The UK issued 45rpm sound better to me than the
1st US 33rpm issue
