I don't know if there was an inconsistency in the pressing but my copy sounds really nice. And funny enough the distortion is actually more enjoyable on my copy than the online version, as it is not blowing out, but is actually quite crisp. And the entire mix throughout is totally fine. Very thick record when sealed, and one of my vinyls did also have visible scuff marks, but by no means did this effect the sound. If you see it in the store, id say its worth the risk under $30.

Sound isn't as good as the BBE / Wax Poetics reissue, as presumably it was done from an original pressing rather than the master tapes. Nevertheless, the original material is hardly hi-fi anyway, so in my opinion it doesn't detract from it that much - if anything, the slightly distorted sound only adds to the experience.

Poor pressing quality on this reissue. My copy--bought new, sealed--had visible scuff marks on all sides, and distortion throughout. Maybe digital sounding compression going on too. In no way do I have an audiophile's ear and this was even worse sounding that the tape bootleg I've got of this. I contacted seller who confirmed that the replacement copies they could send me also had visible scuffs. Such a drag as I've been waiting for a 2LP reissue for a while.

This is being reissued by BBE in November as a double LP, so hopefully it will sound as good as the Wax Poetics version.

Yes unfortunately the pressing is well below par. What a shame

Anyone have any comment on the sound / pressing quality of this please? I have the other re-issue and would consider this an upgrade if it sounds decent. Thanks

My copy sounds weak. Not a great pressing. Anyone else have a problem?
