This album that has never left my record box. I had a weekly pub residency for 3 years and Dove was always the first track in my sets.

Good pressing.. just good.
Got the lp new but still plays like a solid vg+
The gatefold jacket is good

Not a top pressing but for the price you cant complaint.

This UK pressing seems rarer and goes for considerably more than US counterparts. I initially went for the US press as it was mastered by Ludwig, it was cheaper, and as the information in this article states, that despite the fact it was recorded in England, funding came from a US executive and they were signed to a US label; Janus Records. Perhaps the master tapes went to the US and the UK pressing comes from a copy?
(Paragraph 5&6) The Message: How Cymande’s cult funk debut shaped the golden age of hip hop.

Will have to seek out this pressing for comparision!

Can't compare this to an original but it's a surprisingly decent pressing. Definitely not high end but a decent placeholder until a decent original crosses your path. The cover is a fairly low res affair and the paper inner is too tight but the vinyl is pretty quiet and the mastering seems a little warm compared to the digital copies I've heard. Fantastic album though and enjoyable in this release.

Excellent quality sound on this pressing. Recorded in the UK and also the first UK press, strangely released one year later than some other places in the world.

Same for me, I will add as well that the sound of this press is a litthe flat
