I heard a lot of bad things about this press but I just bought a copy from bleep.com and it's a near perfect copy - flat quiet and clean out of the sleeves. I also bought Geogaddi and haven't played all that yet but it also seems a good press.

My favourite Boards album, but then each one of them is my favourite but for different things, this one is excellent for just careless relaxation, lounging and daydreaming.
The record itself is.. pretty nice, could be better, could do without a few cyclic crackles at the start of 3 out of 4 sides, oh and there was mysterious substance all over my side D that I had to clean off ?? I don't want to say someone may have jizzed on my copy of Campfire Headphase.. but that was weird to find.

Relieved to report that my copy has no noise! I'd say go buy this right now.

Got this on CD when it was released but have just got a vinyl copy (2013) repress.

Listen through tonight on headphones and my copy seems fine. No sound issues or scratches to the vinyl.

Alright, Ive read about the repress being utter crap, but Ive learned its just picky. I had bought a sub par record player off Amazon and the c side would skip through most of it and I believe some of b side would skip, I brought it to a buddy's house who has a Audio Technica, (not sure which model), and all the songs played without a hiccup. So I went to Wall-Mart and picked up a 60 dollar record player and it worked fine. I really think its just a picky repress. Other than that, this is my seocond favorite boc album next to Boc Maxima, which will never be found. Best songs Dayvan Cowboy and Constants are Changing. Worst song is Slow this Bird Down, not a bad song, just too long for what it is.

This album was an extremely new sound for BOC. They stepped away from their trademark sampled child vocals and added acoustic guitars to their sound palette. The electronic/acoustic hybrid drum beats are now replaced by entirely acoustic drum patterns. The synth sounds are undefinable, they put on so many effects that I can't even tell what it is anymore, all my ears know it that it's extremely beautiful. The sound of the album is also lighter and happier than Geogaddi, using more uplifting melodies and claps in the drum beats. Many of the retain the BOC feel: they're longer, and change subtely. Although, I've noticed more breaks in the melodies and beats that serve to break up repetition. As much as I love this album, I wouldn't recommend that you make it your first listen for the band. If you love the uplifting and accessible sound of trakcs such as "Dayvan cowboy" and "Peacock Tail", you may just be disappointed by the dark, electronic sound of their other albums.

Both records are very warped and the B side is missing it's sticker. Still plays decently though.

Just been reading through all these comments on the repressings of the boc vinyl. So far I've gotten Hi Scores, MHTRTC, Twoism, ABPOITC… all of them were well pressed and played well without any surface noise or errors. But man, from what people have said about TCH and TransCanadaHighway, and Geogaddi, (and I've read Twoism had issues too) it seems they really fakked something up in these repressings. Campfire Headphase is probably my least favourite boc album so I'm gonna save it for last, and I'm glad I chose to do so. Hoping I can get the newest one that ISN'T a bad pressing.
