Sound quality is decent, but nothing spectacular. However, the pressing is not great with alot of surface noise after being ultrasonically cleaned twice, especially on side A.

I have a copy of this, same barcode etc., but my matrix runout says:
163751E1/A on side 1
163751E2/A on side 2

Anyone else with the same copy as mine?

Can anyone tell me how this sounds to the original? To me, this release sounds a bit compressed.

Why is this reissue going for so much more than the other reissues? Very curious

to me, water no get enemy (side B) is one of the deepest grooves of all-time. the horn lines dart in and out. it has a fluid-like take on the Fela sound. the lines are variations of each other at times in a sense like Monk did with his lines... so far into my investigation of the catalog, this is a classic developed sound-the band is like clockwork.
