I'd be very interested to hear an original... considering its a DMM from RTI

I will also agree that the original version sounds much better than the repress, this applies to all of the MM records that I have heard. Owned the original version of the Fruit That Ate Itself and Sad Sappy Sucker and have never heard a repressed version so I can't comment there. The repressing sounds distorted as well, original does not (applies to all of the records that I have heard.)

I spent a big chunk of my tax refund on a sealed copy of this (original pressing) and I wanted to say it sounds infinitely better than the reissue. It's still the same lofi album, but the pressing is soft and spacious. I find the reissue gives me a headache in headphones. Worth the $.

Anybody notice that the spine of the records has catalog number UP44 and the vinyls list UP 044? Is this consistent with the original pressings?

Just got a sealed copy of this, wondering if anyone has seen any sealed copies in the last few years? Hefty price tag but worth it.
