I just picked up a copy of the other pressing (black and white cover) and that pressing seems to be completely fine, in case anyone was wondering

There is no deluxe version. This is a re-press. As far as I could tell, Side A sounds fine on this one, but Side B, yeah ... sigh ... there's rumbling through the whole thing, and the occasional static ... like it's coming from a distant radio station and the signal isn't 100%. Disappointing, Matador! (And side note, why change the cover to this semi-generic "press release" portrait? Booo!). Oh well, it didn't cost a lot, so it will be enjoyed....

... and now A COUPLE YEARS LATER, I sold the re-press and bought the original (with b&w art) for the same price. Good trade, and the original does sound a teensy bit better. (No hugely significant difference overall; I just prefer the original cover!)

It should be noted that this version does not list Peeping Tomboy as B3, but instead lists On Tour a second time. This may or may not increase the value of the album itself, as this is clearly a misprint.
