Anyone else's EQUINOX *stereo* pressing have a sibilant/really "metallic" sound?

    The same problem is also inherent on a tape of The Sandpipers SOFTLY (4147) -- where, it's the kind of effect over-biasing a recording tape would produce: the eq didn't match the speed and, therefore, compressed the top end too much.

    LP sounds plenty smooth here. No problems.

    The deadwax on my copy says:
    (side 1) SP4143-3
    (side 2) SP4144-A9
    The area across from that (on side 2) also, has: what looks to be a "D" followed by an "A" and then eight hash marks.
    The other -odd?- thing is that the catalog number on the back cover just says "A&M 122"...no "SP" or "LP" or *4*122 (but the FRONT does indicate it's "SP 4122").

    At that time some of the early a&m albums had both stereo and mono numbers listed on the back and some just had the last 3 digit numbers listed on the back for example i had the Equinox LP in mono A&M LP 122 and the same back cover listed it as A&M 122 like your stereo back cover.
