I've been bamboozled! Picked this up at my local used book/record store last summer. I thought for sure it was a genuine Japanese print. What evs. Can't comment on the sound quality as I have an ever expanding vinyl collection yet no vinyl player as of yet. Anyways Slowdive is playing Dallas in a few days and I plan on bringing this album to get it signed. I just hope they don't reject it please god.

Haven't heard the original LP or the MOV reissue but this sounds awesome to my ears - nice full sound and the bonus tracks make it worth your while. The artwork does have a greenish tinge but you'd never really pick it unless told. Recommended

more songs and sound pretty better the music on vinyl repress. got this!!!

Damn, I bought this at Amoeba Records years ago not knowing it was this version. That's pretty cool. Sound is not bad whatsoever, especially for a supposed bootleg. Very well made.

I just found this today used for $13 and have not listened to this but visually it's a top quality print reproduction. Sleeve, inner sleeve and labels are superior to my eyes. I have the MOV so i'm happy to have the extra tracks on vinyl. Likely my ears won't tell the difference were the sound was sourced from :)

what happened to this pressing ?? it has vanished?? i dont care how bad it is i still want to own a copy, if any of the old seller have a few left message me please

The people commenting on the bad sound of this bootleg obviously don't know what "good" sounding music on vinyl sounds like.

Even for a bootleg, there is NOTHING wrong with the sound quality here. If you want a shoddy, sh*tty sounding version of this LP, feel free to pay $50 for the terrible MOV pressing out there.

Or, if you want the real thing, go track down an original UKpressing and be prepared to pay about $300+ for 10 songs. This version gives you 4 bonus tracks -- all excellent -- and great sound.

You shouldn't feel bad about buying this because the bands don't get a dime for the MOV pressings either, so those might as well be bootlegs too.

For the budget-minded LP buyer who wants a great album with great sound and extra bonus tracks, this version -- NOT the overpriced, mishandled MOV version -- is your best bet.

Terrible bootleg pressed from a CD. Please don't anyone fall for the fake comments on here. They're most probably written by the people who made/distributed this. MrBlack was selling multiple copies of this on eBay when it first surfaced - advertising it as a 'rare Japanese Fan Club Edition.' Please don't waste your money on this counterfeit version.

Well I just got a copy of the Music on Vinyl Version of this release which is a single LP($30 ouch) compared to the double vinyl version and I was hoping this version would be much better than the original, I personally own all the version and the double vinyl Japanese is much warmer and has more depth, I dont know what the source is for all of them but the Japanese double Lp IMHO is a listening experience. The bottom end is much more warp and deep. Also you get all the bonus tracks and I dont think it cost as much as the original or the new reissue which was probably taken from CD as well. Whatever the case maybe, its a monumental record.
