Comments
GDG Excellent mastering by JP

GS Piercinly bright, but better dynamics than LPs. 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 -4 -8 -12

Immortal Fake stereo. Upper end not shrill but they got carried away. Better to bring down to much highs than to bring back something that has been totally removed.

T/L, AGM, and FM all quite good.

AGM1 Nice but not as bright and clear, slightly better lows.

T/L Slight coloration in low end.

FM a little weak in low end.

LM my copy a little crackly, uneven response in upper end but not bad.

AT a definite step down from the others. Shrill with weak low end.
