IMO those are as rare as grey label.
clean sound, real deep 4049 mix, DRY, no overdub, clean vinyl ,less warp the grey label usually thinner.

Echoing the previous comments. Terrible pressing. Dull, flat, lifeless, very quiet. Sounds like it was mastered by a deaf person via satellite telephone link. So bad is it in fact, that it made me wonder if my speakers had blown. Avoid this like the plague. If someone actually pressed the plague onto vinyl it would sound better than this.

grey label 4049 and standart white label...NO DIFFERENCE...both can be clean and free of hiss...
to call that here repress is really stupid.....anyway who ever likes a blue stripe paperpiece add 300 usd instead for a near mint.

the 4049 is simply the best roots lp ever produced...the first press is dry and smooth...so its never get boring nor is it almost imposssible to overlisten it....the 4049 both labels grey and standart white are pressed clean and no crackles in the first stampers series...
who ever has crakle free clean copy should keep it holy as very few perfect 4049 exist still......
not only for reggae lovers a milesstone production lp , dark and amazing...thank you upsetter for that outstanding moment of the 70s.........

This is a very disappointed in this pressing...flat, lifeless, muddy. Does not come to close to the quality I was expecting. Hopefully I will come across a better one at some point.

This is the worst pressing of this LP, clocking in at 35 minutes, compared to 53 minutes for Black Art KLP05.

The Congo Ashanty pressing is the worst of all of them, cutting about 20 minutes of run time (!) compared to the “definitive” second pressing (Black Art KLP05).

How does this compare to the 3xLP reissue by 17 north parade? Sound quality? Speed? Mix? Just curious

This Go Feet release is a nice job with a fine sleeve reproduction, incidentally it remains the shortest version of the album, almost all tunes beeing cut short.
