My copy exhibits the same tendencies as those of plaidzebra's. Also, the centre hole is off, so there is significant wow and flutter, always great if you like to feel seasick while listening to records. A bad pressing...

The tracklist is tremendously tempting, but it's of course too good to be true. This collection, like the recent collection on Radiation Records, sounds flat and muted. There's a conspicuous lack of sonic detail. I don't have all the originals on vinyl, but I do have two of the four found here. The contrast in sound quality is obvious. This is tactile, explosive, tense and textured music, and it loses a lot in the transfer to this compilation. The originals, while not exactly high fidelity, sound punchy and full of life with plenty of detail to pore over; the "remaster" sounds dull, slightly out of focus. The best I can say is the record was pressed flat and centered with no obvious outward flaws. I can't recommend "Early Studio Recordings" because the sound quality doesn't really do this band justice. 5 stars for the music, two stars for the sound.
