Contrary to what you might expect, this isn't the original "1987" with the samples removed; rather, it's as if someone is just playing the original album and pressing a 'mute' button whenever anything not by the Jams is playing. This results in some amusing bits, like 3 minutes of silence where the "Top Of The Pops"-sampling section would have been. Worth getting for amusement value, and because it's the highest-definition pressing of the beautiful song "Me Ru Con" (12" at 45rpm; the original album was 33, and the only other pressing was a 45rpm 7").

The record also has fun instructions on the back of the sleeve by King Boy D for recereating the original album, which also act as something of an explanation of the original "1987" itself, written in Bill Drummond's inimitable dry style. Worth picking up if it's not too expensive.
