Yea, there's that part that skips on my record too. It seems to play fine with anti-skate on.

Sadly I have to confirm the skipping. I actually have two copies with the same issue, skipping at the end of the intro of caught up. I am not confident enough to play this record in the club, such a shame.

Just checked the feedback on this release and I'm appalled by these reports. We had a total of two (2) reports from shops and we checked a bunch of copies ourselves (which were perfect, at least in terms of tracking/skipping - mastering is subjective). Apologies to those who got bum copies. Unfortunately on a repress we drop-ship and can't test every copy...issues can arise during mastering, electroplating or pressing, and often one company points fingers at another. We will be trying a new mastering house, however, so fingers crossed moving forward. At least weight helps - plenty of records in the personal collection, esp. from Detroit from the 90s, where I have to do the same thing. Glad there are a couple good reports peppered in here, which means the problem isn't universal. If you have an issue, please return it (if possible) to the shop you purchased from. They can then return to distributor and we can credit. Unfortunately we cannot process returns unless it was bought directly from our online store. Sorry and we hope to never have this issue again.

I was excited when i heard about the release. Skipping doesn't seem to be a problem with my copy, i'm more disappointed at how Miura sounds. I get that they fixed a few things they weren't content with on the original track, but something has been lost in the re-mastering process..
