Absolutely dead silent pressing. Is it just me or is it a little muddy in the low end on some tracks? Could be the result of a fold down as mentioned by others. Nonetheless I am just so happy I finally own this on vinyl.

Even if this is a fold-down, which seems to be unproven, this is quite a nice sounding record. Feel totally satisfied having this and 29 Demos (of which I actually prefer to Take A Picture.)

I think this is a wonderful sounding press. Bold and punchy mono mix, with Margo’s vocals shining at the front. From what I can tell this mono reissue is limited so get it while you can!

This is not really the strongest sounding record.
It could in part be due to the recording but I suspect much comes down to the decision to source from Mono. Perhaps the mix is just lame or its a simple fold, either way the mastering is most likely not the issue given Kevins involvement. The source claims could in general also be questionable given Sundazeds sneaky name inclusion on the spine.
By no means is it terrible and the most important thing to remember is to crank the volume a lot, Im talking 50% louder than your average record to get a real effect going. Performances besides Margos voice sound small and laid back otherwise, but even then, very dry and less than idealized compared to the reverbing vocals.
Someday I might get a Stereo version to compare against, for now this is fine.
Luckily the pressing quality is good enough for the most part and the quiet cut doesnt suffer too much with noise or crackles.

Equipment Used:
Technics SL-1210GR Turntable
Paratrace tipped Nagaoka MP-200 Cartridge
Cyrus 2 Amplifier
System Fidelity SF-3050 Tower Speakers

It will be interesting to see if this will be the actual mono mix described, or if Sundazed has pulled the same shenanigans they did with their "original mono mix" release of Safe As Milk

So this version lops off “Love” as the last song on the album? What’s up with that?

Well this certainly confirms that the promo presses aren’t fold downs from the stereo mix. Does this have a proper mono jacket, or a stereo one with stickers??

This album is rare! There are more known copies of the Vashti Bunyan album than this, at least according to Discogs stats. Hard to believe.
