A worthy reissue to have, bringing out the best this rather low par recording has to offer.
Kevins cut is lively with good instrument separation and spectrum extension.
From low to high end it makes it all enjoyable, especially the low end which I think many will come to appreciate with this release.
Bass wise this might be the best you can get this album with mega drive and punch on those tracks that are recorded to allow it like Where There's Woman. But I do wish there was some tighter selected bottom end on tracks like Zig Zag Wanderer.
It might also be hindered somewhat by the shrill and distorted guitars, not allowing the listener to crank the volume enough before they become too loud.
Nothing will probably ever remove the distortion in some tracks and this is no exception. But Im not sure I can critisize it for that fact. I also use a Stereo cart which might increase it in the separate channels so I digress for now.
The vinyl too is quiet and lacks nearly any crackles and pops despite the color. And it does make for a rather fitting looking disc wouldnt you say?

Equipment Used:
Rega RP1 with Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers
Custom made HQ Speaker Cables

Can anyone chime in on how this pressing sounds? White vinyl tends to be noisier than other colors.
