"Their third recording was one of the group's stronger outings, even if it confirms their status as folk popularizers rather than musical innovators. In particular, this record was essential to boosting the profile of Bob Dylan, including their huge hit cover of "Blowin' in the Wind," their Top Ten version of "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," and the bluesy "Quit Your Lowdown Ways," which Dylan himself would not release in the '60s (although his version finally came out on The Bootleg Series). "Stewball," "All My Trials," and "Tell It on the Mountain" were other highlights of their early repertoire, and the dramatic, strident, but inspirational "Very Last Day" is one of the best original tunes the group ever did." - AMG.
This is the original (and very rare) 'Gold Label' pressing from 1963.

This LP features crystal clear Vocals with "air" and ambience around each. The imaging is very focused - you can tell where each artist is relative to the others easily. Each voice is distinct and readily identifiable. Guitars and String Bass sound natural and realistic. Everything is well balanced and demonstrates just how good these older recordings were produced - especially when measured against today's "best"!
Surface noise is audible as 'crackles' between tracks and on most quiet passages. Some random 'ticks'.
Price has been adjusted to relect this.
