it has always bugged me that i have a different version to that listed. my version has PURE CDD10 on the CD itself and contains the album proper on it (it is exactly the same as my LP version), no extra tracks. it has Demonstration LP on the CD. the case has PURE CD10, could it be a promo version?

Regarding the version with one LP . . . I've had this LP for years, and it sounds amazing. It has always been rather quiet, and the mastering on a good system sounds live practically, like PJ and her band are in your living room. No sibilance at all, but that can often boil down to your needle -some handle sibilance way better than others. Had sibilance issues with other artists like Kate Bush, Lana Del Rey, Tori Amos (very hissy), but changed cart to a supposed "sibilance killer," and that issue is completely GONE now (thank God!) Very clear and lively separation of instruments/sounds. Not too high, not too low. No bleeding ears, nor is it ever too bass-y. I thought about selling it once, but glad I never did.

My copy, bought on the day of release, does not have a number sticker. Never did.

Just picked up one of these for £15 on ebay.... Fed up waiting for a reissue! Sounds decent, as does the Rid Of Me... Both flying around on ebay at the moment!

I got this today. Very happy with it, number #207. However.. it has suffered over the years from cd bronzing. It doesn’t affect play (I made sure of it!) but studied and found it was made by the dreaded PDO plant.. I wouldn’t be surprised if every copy of this has suffered from bronzing.. which could risk cd rot. I’m under the impression that as my cd still works as it should (after 26 years!) it won’t affect it any further, just cosmetically. But others may not be so lucky. Before you sell your copy, if you do.. please check to make sure it doesn’t have any more than cosmetic damage by playing the album all the way through.

To the person asking if there are pressing issues on all of the, the answer is no. My copy sounds very clean, no pops or sibilance. No flaws. It sounds truly amazing. Hope this helps

Good sounding bootleg. Bought this on a berlin fleamarket with some not so good sounding other bootlegs.

After owning this for a few months, I cant believe this is the first review here... I have a pretty solid copy and legit press of this classic. Listened to so many times, one of my favorite albums from one of my favorite artists. There are some pressing flaws, some non-fill, and poppy/scratchy (even after extensive cleaning) on both sides especially side A. All that aside, this is one of the most immersive listens in my collection. The bass and drums are so well mic'd. It seems simultaneously distorted and lo-fi as it does immediate and personal. If not for some pressing issues, this would easily be in my top 10 best sounding lp's
