Rock albums don’t get much better than Blue by Joni Mitchell — from a time when artists regularly put out LPs on which every track was a classic.  (When did that stop seeming like a good idea?)

The modern pressing I’m listening to now, on 180-gram vinyl from Rhino, is clear and bright but the sound is slightly brittle –without the depth and roundness of the original.  Someday Mobile Fidelity will put out an edition and that will be the one to have (unless you’ve got a nice clean copy of the first pressing.)  Until then, this will do very well.
