Everything about this reissue says cheap, including pressing quality. Not a gatefold, liners edited to a single page insert, only a couple photos used instead of the bunch with original issue and photo quality is especially poor. Compare how dark the prints are to original issue of this LP. They also substituted tracks for the Treasure Isle productions on original issue of Foundation Ska from 1997 instead of paying to license them.
