I bought this versión and it have a failure, on Frankie teardrop the right channel have a 2 or 3 seconds of silence, just like if you pull out the RCA of the channel...

What's the consensus on the quality of this pressing? Should I get this version, or the Superior Viaduct reissue?

There has to be a reissue of this one. Just bought it in a Fnac store mint 9 Nov 2016.
But all the codes and etchings are a match for this release.

I was first exposed to Suicide by John Peel's BBC Radio show in the UK in 1977. The way he introduced the track immediately grabbed my attention - "Now, I first played this track a few weeks ago, and I've since had a number of requests from listeners NEVER to play it again. So, for all of you, here are Suicide - and "Frankie Teardrop".. (Probably not his exact words, but close to them). What followed was ten minutes of gruesome, desperate anguish brought into stark life, even through a cheap mono transistor radio.

Simply a milestone record in Rock history. People working with cobbled-together electronics and a sprit of independence, who somehow managed to translate raw emotion and imagery into the sound coming out of your speakers more powerfully than anyone before (or arguably since). This record makes movies in your head; escapist, voyeuristic, sleazy, right-on-the-edge ones in glorious widescreen super-high-def.

Often described as "ahead of it's time", I'd simply call it timeless. Wait 'till dark, draw the curtains, turn out the lights and absorb it. It'll force you to inhabit extremely vivid worlds, some you might not be too comfortable with, some you might want to stay in forever. Warm and cosy this ain't. Beware. Danger lurks within...
