I have a few copies of this LP and most of them have a label across the original barcode all with different barcodes. Anyone else notice this?

Good overall sound quality, much more dynamic and full than the CD. Too bad for some surface flaws, although they are almost not noticeable (almost... because a couple of them produce clicks).
