Notes:
Leprosy is the second studio album by American death metal band Death, released on November 16 1988, by Combat Records. Notably different in tone and quality from the 1987 debut, it is the first example of Scott Burns' work heard on many of the death metal and grindcore albums of that era. The cover is featured in Metal: A Headbanger's Journey. It is the first album to feature drummer Bill Andrews and the only one to feature guitarist Rick Rozz.

I concur regarding the sound. I think if anyone buys this red BoB lp you will not be disappointed.

Great sound on all instruments.

This is only a sleeve for otherwise home-made copy. The DECK sleeves, first only in black and white,and later on in color, were quite popular in Poland in the 80s. Needless to say, they predate any copyright laws.

The 2018 clear vinyl remaster is pretty good. I had the original UK vinyl, and I prefer this edition. It also is much better then the Century Media vinyl release from a few years ago.
