"Analogue Productions' cleanly pressed 45rpm version of Reed's most famous release is not the first audiophile edition. Mobile Fidelity released a fine-sounding gold disc in the '90s, and Audio Fidelity recently transferred it onto SACD. But there's magic lurking within these grooves that digital has never fully reproduced; the album has never sounded better. Reed's lazy rhythmic sway, loose-limbed strumming, and unmannered singing fill the soundstage...Guitar timbres teem with purity, and there's ample separation between Reed's elementary harmonica solos and Earl Phillips' rocking-chair percussion. While the album has never been a dynamic standout, it's hard to imagine a future incarnation getting more from the music." - Bob Gendron, The Absolute Sound,
