Every issue of my copy matches up with this fifth pressing variant (bluish graphics inside on left hand bottom etc) but matrix’s are A-6/B-3. Sounds majestic.

One of the best copies I have ever owned. Clean, clear with great highs and lows. I have several presses including MOFI and this one is almost very similar to MOFI.

It seems my brother has a version of this release (I have asked him on the run-out identifiers: so far I know side A has "SHVL 804 A-10" and side B has "SHVL 804 B-9"). The front of the outer sleeve contains the word "busker" in bold lower case alongside (inside and parallel to) the yellow part at the end of the rainbow. It seems part of the release, not added afterwards. Is anyone familiar with 'Busker'?

This the best version of the cover out there, if you have a well looked after copy, the printing is clear and the cover card and colour is spot on. It even outsmarts the very early copies, IMHO

My copy of this release is on flat vinyl with moderate surface noise; regular light pops that might be reduced with cleaning. The soundstage is big with great separation. Deep low frequencies and punchy mid-bass. Highs are detailed and clean. Vocals are out front, but slightly canned. My copy is fairly noisy and slightly distracting, YMMV, but worth the investment.
