Love SY, love this album. This was a turning point in their career ,leaving behind the no-wave/experimental sound and pointing toward a more rock-oriented song structure. The guitar work is beautiful. I finally picked up a used copy of this pressing. Don't expect this to sound with audiophile quality, SY was pretty much lofi by the time, but it is so good to finally listen to this album with its proper sound and without digital compression. The cd reissue I had was terrible.

There is also a Blast First BFFP 20, were the girlphoto on the backside blacked out, but the Disneyphoto on the front still uncensored. I have it.

Later pressings of this had the top left picture on the the front (mickey and friends) and back covers (girl in dungarees) blacked out after the copyright owners objected to the use of the images.
