This is a wonderful repressing of a classic collection of songs. Anyone who is thinking about shelling out 70 bucks for an original press should think again... Unless you have some sentimental reason to purchase or something. The CD is also heart wrenchingly melancholic ("From a window" is a gem). The pressing is an overall success on every level.

I bought a sealed copy with original sticker on the shrink. There are traces on side b that affect the playback. Looks like silver spots in the grooves, only visible when you hold it against the light. Anyone else who noticed that?
