It would help so much if someone could tell something about the sound of this issue. There is also a DMM single disc press from 89, it would be interesting which one is preferable as it is not said that 45rpm have to be the best to pick up. Maybe I am wrong or heard about false references but in this case there is none.

Variations of the cover are a dark blue/purpley background and a much lighter blue background.Applies to stickered and unstickered covers. Note the unstickered covers may have been shrink-wrapped with the sticker on the wrap and hence thrown away.
