Santana - "Santana" 200 g reissue
Emerson Lake and Palmer - "Emerson Lake and Palmer"

Allah-Las  "California"
Santana Abraxas (ARS Joerg Kessler, Columbia - 32032, KC 30130) just arrived from Discogs. This was from Audiophile Record Service, mastered from original tapes, released in 1997 I think. It is supposed to be an excellent sounding pressing, and I’m curious how it compares to my standard Columbia.
@gakerty,

Hope it meets your expectations. Let us know.

Listening to the ARS Abraxas pressing now.  It has greater clarity to the cymbals, which sounded somewhat dull on my regular Columbia pressing.  Bass is lower in level, but tighter on the ARS vs recent Columbia.  Wow, this ARS sounds so clean, and I mean that in a good way for sure!  Vocals are more front and center, guitar too.  Enough flipping between the two pressings I have, gonna listen to the whole album now (ARS).  I am happy.
