Turns out third time’s the charm for me. This is the third pressing I bought a couple weeks ago; the last two (original pressings) had skips galore on otherwise EX discs (I meticulously adjusted my setup several times to no avail). Initially, this one had skips as well, which made me frustrated, so I placed it in a pile I’m planning to sell. Well, I’m glad I didn’t-because I gave it a second listen &, with the exception of one skip that went away after I played it again (what others who have complained about it should do), it played through flawlessly.
“Gumboots” plays a bit rough distortion-wise on my system due to how “out-front” the vox & sax are mixed & the nature of inner grooves, but the real MVPs here are “Under African Skies” &, particularly, “Homeless”. Exceptionally dynamic, clear as a whistle, and no background noise of any kind. Chances are VERY slim that one may find an OG press that sounds as good as this reissue!

This pressing is incredible...pancake flat and completely silent. It’s a treat every time...I could swear I’m in the crowd again. Shut up and buy it.

This pressing sounds quite a bit better than my original pressing. Very well done.

I had the same problem with the digital download link. Upon closer inspection, the card says the offer is only good through December 31, 2015.
