Just wanted to comment on this release. Picked this up at a record shop in NYC over 4 years ago. Never had anything from the Light In The Attic label before (or since), and I must say, this is a quality release.

The vinyl is heavy, excellent quality, and well-pressed. Sound is fantastic. I've heard some Vagrants compilations before, and these songs have never sounded this good. The packaging is out of this world. The gatefold sleeve is beautiful, with clear photographs, crisp text, and THICK sleeve stock. Feels like a record you would've bought back in the day, when The Vagrants were together. Also has a nice insert with in-depth liner notes (and more pics/memorabilia).

And yes, I know, it doesn't have "Satisfaction" on here, but that can be found elsewhere fairly easily. Like I said, the sound on those other comps doesn't come close to this one. Don't hesitate to get this one, folks. It's awesome.
