I had quite a gap in hearing America... for the first time to finally getting it on cd. while the re-master is great, it didn't quite sound as good, especially on the more rock-out psychedlic 4th side. thankfully I bought this vinyl as a birthday present for someone & my faith has been restored. put simply, it sounds awesome.
if you really want to get the full kick from the Funkadelic rhythm section, vinyl is the way to go. and I haven't even mentioned that glorious gatefold sleeve....
