Its not a replica of the original. Several track versions are different and this appears to replicate the 2009 cd reissue. Still waiting for a clean 7" version of double dutch to be re-issued

What a complete waste of money and, more importantly, record plant pressing time. You can go to any junk shop, charity shop, rubbish dump, landfill site or jumble sale and buy an original copy of this for 50p. What an idiotic waste of time and vinyl.
When I saw this on the wall of a shop for £25 I knew the entire RSD enterprise (which had started out very well meaning) had turned into a gigantic joke. There's approximately 5 million albums that deserve to be reissued before this load of redundant crap.
What on earth is the point? I give up.

Of course you could always buy an original copy for £1.50. Who's bright idea was it to reissue this for 20 times the price of the original record? My local shop didn't shift any of these, this to me is why RSD is a joke. The majors get involved, flood it with rubbish and kill the entire ideal.

Lets all hope for a full monthly series of reissues now seeing how popular this was on RSD2015. I sadly didn't manage to get one as my local store Pie and Vinyl in Southsea UK didn't get this release. Would love a copy (but not for more than the RRP of £24.99+p+p)
