Background: Love’s 1974 LP, Reel to Real was intended to be the big comeback for the band, but for whatever reason, it never came to pass and the album is fairly scarce today. The copy offered for sale is a test pressing, manufactured to ensure that the mastering and plating were correct and that the finished product sounded as it should. Test pressings are usually limited to just a handful of copies and are generally issued to band and record company personnel.
