Tech stuff:

The LP was recorded in 24 bit/88.2 kHz and downsampled to 44.1 kHz
after fixes.

A good Virgin 70s pressing, by monitoring the recording in phones,
only 10 very small clicks and 2 somewhat louder ones were detected.
These were manually removed so that no further de-clicking was needed.

Album normalized as a whole but not limited, probably making this
sound a whole lot quieter than the reissue cd. But use the volume and
be rewarded by getting the superior dynamic range of vinyl! (Stupid,
isn't it - technically the CD format have a superior dynamic range
but then the industry settles for heavy limiting and thus offsets the
only aspect where CDs had the upper hand...)

Encoded as VBR files at 224 Kb/s and extending to 320 when needed.
Seemingly consisting of two distinct sessions, some tracks on the LP
share a common dull sound while another batch is quite crisp.
The chosen bitrate should do the job just fine in both cases.
