My record was pressed flawlessly.

High quality gatefold and heavy vinyl

My pressing sounds good and is 160g vinyl. I bought it early 2000s.

About halfway through side one, and I must say that I'm really impressed with the sound quality of this release. The pressing is nice and quiet and flat. The sound stage and dynamics of this record are really impressive considering that I picked up this European import for $23 stateside. I don't know if I'd pay flipper prices for this, but if this is a must have record for you, know that this pressing is top notch in every way. The packaging is also solid. Another hit for Mr. Bongo.

Terrible pressing. The copy I received its warped and there is a bulge on track 2 side B.
I asked the seller for new one. He was happy to replace it but then he checked and found like
the other one its nothing better. Probably the whole batch looks the same...

Brothers on the Slide might just be among the top three funk songs I have ever heard. It’s like that song you play at full blast in your car with the windows down if you’re feeling particularly invincible, or like the one you play on your headphones as you walk down the street because you know today is your day. You know, that day where nothing is going wrong and you look good and you even remembered to shave and tie your shoes this morning. It’s impossible not to groove to it – this song was not designed for you to stand still. And that’s all before the brass section comes in…! Here’s to Cymande, that band from Guyana and Jamaica that took London by storm in the early seventies. Here’s to the eclectic funk that they’ve created. Music like this isn’t made anymore…
