· "Just One Drink" consists of two different intros, each in its own groove, with both connecting at the body of the song. BA1 is acoustic, BB1 is electric.

· Vinyl is pressed in flat-edged format.
· Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record.
· Tracks B3 and B4 are swapped in comparison to the digital editions, and B2 features a slightly longer intro.

I've had three copies of this from three different UK sellers in the last couple of weeks and had to return them all as track one sticks in a groove half way through. I've given up now as I'm assuming the current pressing available in the UK is faulty. Before anyone asks, I know it plays backwards!

After cleaning my copy with a Project VC-S and trying it on my new system today, I have to say that my copy is absolutely flawless. Not a single noise apart from what was intended on the recording. Silence between tracks etc. So nice to hear analogue to analogue with no digital intervention. The extra features make for interest but the actual music is also very good. Very clean and deep sounding album. I loved it.

If Jack purposely included scratches, pops, and skips, then he's a genius. If not, then I would start pressing elsewhere. My copy was dirty. Little pieces of vinyl were clinging to the record. Had to clean it twice. Ironically, this was the first album I played on a newly installed new cartridge. Of course I thought the cart was bad, until I read these reviews. I love the music. I love the minimalist vibe. I love the eclectic attraction. I HATE the sound, but I get it. Awesome album. If you don't like all the bells and whistles, and skips, just listen to the MP3s. Definitely one for the collection!!

It is great composition. I love this collection. Fabulous music

For the love of god, Jack White, stop using United Record Pressing...

Really love the album but the musical quality of this pressing leaves a lot to be desired. It's not horrible as people tend to make you think but it could and should certainly be a lot better. (still a fantastic album tho)

In my opinion quality matters more than a different features. The noise floor on this one is very high. Sounds like it was recorded off the ferric cassette tape. I did in fact try to record it onto a cassette and the hiss of recording exceeded that of a tape. The highs and overall sound is not clear also, there's no punch to it. Analog audio isn't meant to be like this. As for the features of the record I didn't notice any flaws in double-groove track and side A plays fine from center to the edge, so it's not the pressing itself but mastering problem. For those who really likes this album I recommend to stick with a 96/24 FLAC or an MP3. No point buying this record other than for a collection.

I'm hoping for a rerelease of this along with the rest of the White Stripes albums when Third Man opens the new record plant. I really hope for a better pressing of all their records (not taken through United). I just want them to release this without all the dumb gimmicks. Yeah, it makes it cool as a conversation piece, but I'd worry about this record skipping a lot with all the "dual grooves" and the inside-out side.

Received this LP today. To be honest, I don't think it deserves such harsh criticisms as found below. The sound quality isn't superb, but I would not saw it is poor. Mediocre to good. As for the actual tracks, this is one for Jack White purists.

Good album but poor quality sound for a 'third man records' label
