Paid a bit for this, needed a couple of spin cleans, but plays well.The cover had seen better days but what nice piece of music history to own!

I picked up this press for £46 on eBay.... Amazed at how outstandingly beautiful a 40-yr-old piece of (rather thin) vinyl can sound. Not an archive copy. Sold at VG+. I cleaned it on an RCM with L'Art du Son.

Presumably across those 40 years the record was handled drunk, with grubby fingers, in smoke-filled bedrooms, on turntables with dreadful cartridges set at horrible VTF.... and yet, sounds superb.

I also have a UK first press of Iggy Pop 'The Idiot' that is also outstanding...

... when vinyl was just the everyday format they certainly knew how to master and press them to perfection!
