Awful awful pressing (catalog number V 150). Anyone's LP have a defect as well? Mine gets stuck and loops on the very first track!!! It's a shame it got so butchered, as this is one of my favorite albums of all time and it's classic Sparks. At some point, I guess I'll try to grab an early pressing.

But presumably, this will have the same substandard mastering of last year's blue vinyl pressing? I'll stick to my original Virgin yellow vinyl pressing from 1979. It sounds superb!

9 Bonus tracks? Make that 7.

Unless i'm really missing something, Beat The Clock (Canadian Single Version) and La Dolce Vita (Extended Version) are identical to the LP versions. (Edit: OK to be precise, the mastering sounds different between the Beat The Clocks, and La Dolce Vita (Extended) fades out 4 seconds longer, hardly extended!)

It's a shame really, because for completists/fanatics, Beat The Clock (Alternative Mix) (the 7" edit of the long version) and The Number One Song In Heaven 7" edit of the long version (the difference is that it is about 30 seconds shorter than the LP version) are not on CD.

The best sounding master-tape sourced CD for this is album I've heard. Very crisp sound.

Get the 1995 CD release if you wan't a decent sounding copy of this album, avoid Repertoire Records' stuff at all costs. Muddy, compressed and most of the time, sourced from vinyl.

I think it is safe to say that this vinyl pressing of 'No. 1 In Heaven' is not very good. It isn't brickwalled like the Repertoire CDS and has a decent dynamic range but a) the bass is smothering everything & b) the snare drums are a mush. Sloppy execution all round.

The CD included is the same as the most recent Repertoire CDs: extra tracks but the sound hurts your ears.

Why no quality control?

Beat the clock is a brilliant track on this album! This record sound like a huge inspiration for the band "Empire of the Sun" or "MGMT".

The 1995 Oasis/Bud Music CD from 1995 is taken from the masters and is the most superior CD of this album, the Japanese Imperial CD is the same but over-compressed.

My copy of this has the extended version of Beat the Clock.

shouldn't the two sets of different labels have their own separate listings?
