The sound lacks brightness, it has no definition in the instruments, no depth. A disappointment unfortunately this album. A bad job of VP Records. Quality control is a disaster.

My version has track A2 spelled correctly on the label. I bought it in Boston circa 2003-4.

Mine doesn't sound good... is it because of this press?

It is a shame how muddy this record from VP sounds compared to the issue put out by Blood & Fire. I bought this a bit ago and immediately noticed the difference when I put the needle on the wax. As an album, hard to say this isn't THE best single album that ever came off that island. A masterpiece along the lines of Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland in terms of a single conception.

This is not the original Jamaica (Black Art) mix as the gentleman below states, but the common Island mix.
