Kurt_tank, I sold all 3 of my Door's DCC titles. I found the 45's to have more of everything. I also really like my Brown label early pressings of the first 3 albums, and my Red label Morrison Hotel. I could see the DCC's being a nice balance in a different system, but I found them a bit thick sounding. Cheers -Don
For a long time I actually preferred the DCC CD as it had bass and dynamics that I could not find in various LP pressings, including the DCC that sounds bland and undynamic like almost all DCC pressings. I recently bought an Elektra white label promo pressing with A and B2 matrix and it is the best I have heard. The bass is still a little light but much better than any other vinyl pressing and the midrange and treble are really good.
I was just on Discogs, looking at first pressings, and came across this note: "This issue is a 'Terre Haute' pressing. See Santa Maria pressing issue". Makes it sound like there's an "issue" with the Santa Maria pressing, but I think it's just an unfortunate sentence composition. A search for "Santa Maria pressing" brought me to this thread, so I may as well ask you guys whether you know what's up with these two pressings? Does one have a particular problem, or is one simply considered better than the other, or what? Incidentally, I do have the Analogue Productions version. It's really the best I've ever heard this particular album.
