My copy had an annoying warp on one of the disks so I sent it back. A shame because it's a tidy compilation with some great tunes. Anyone else had a warped copy? It's one of the things I find unacceptable about paying for brand new vinyl. It's so expensive and yet the quality control isn't always what it should be. These pressing plants need to up their game.
