Same lacquers that were used for the Light In The Attic reissue. MCR-900 inscribed in the deadwax.

Recommend! Can’t compare to MCR vers (although, from my experience, they put out quality stuff), but this vers is good in its own right. Quiet playback, flat, sounds good. Not gatefold or 180gram - if those things are necessary to you - but at >$20 is real good to have on vinyl.

Can anyone provide more info on this? The bandcamp page makes it sound like they are selling copies of the Modern Classics version but this page seems to indicate there's a new pressing on their label
