Companies, etc.



Repressed on either opaque or translucent purple/multicoloured marbled vinyl.

The first 'Audio Fidelity' pressing from 2010 (Discogs ID 2404695) attempted to mirror the 'EMI America' pressing from 1985, which was an opaque pink/grey marbled vinyl.

Gatefold cover artwork from 2010 issue retained. For the 2010 issue, the record itself was housed inside a thick, pink tinted plastic inner sleeve. This 2014 repress replaces that sleeve with a thinner clear polythene version.

As with the 2010 issue, the whole package is housed inside a clear plastic outer bag bearing an oval gold sticker. Unlike the 2010 issue, this edition is not numbered.

Note: "Cloudbusting" is still incorrectly printed as "Cloud busting" on the record label, as per the 2010 issue.

My copy of this sounds great. Whatever issue the earlier run had is not an issue on my copy.

I just received my copy from Soundstage Direct--opaque purple marlbled and not numbered. Aside from some random, sporadic vinyl surface noise this copy does NOT suffer from the noise present on the earlier pressing. Sonically this sounds amazing. Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman did a great job with this amazing album.
