The tracklisting is really messed up. The end of Side A is "Good Guy" then "Nights," and the start of Side B is "Solo (Reprise)" and then "Pretty Sweet."

Hi.
Is this pressing good? I don't enjoy the idea of buying unofficial releases, but for this record the prices are blown up unproportionally. However, for this album the quality of the pressing is especially important. Does anyone know the quality of this?
Kind regards

One of the best albums of the decade. That is all.

I have one that matches up these notes, except with purple smoke/green smoke coloring. They have actual stickers as well on the records that have the songs of each side on them, with no etching. Not sure if it deserves a separate listing though, as it almost feels like just an iteration on the other one.

XL usually reissue every album they release. I'm sure this will be reissued at some point. Be patient and don't pay the scalpers silly money

Jesus take the wheel, i guess frank is trolling the vinyl community, especially for EU people.

God, the scalping here is out of control! Prime example of why people don't get into records, right here. Ya'll should be ashamed...

The sound is OK. Some songs sound good, some (most noticeably Solo (Reprise)) are a bit harsh and others sound a little bit flat. But, overall it's a decent pressing.

Regardless, I'm so so so happy to have a copy on wax for a semi-reasonable price

my copy sounds great! i stopped in my local record store and they had all of frank's releases on bootlegs. I rly couldn't resist seeing as the official pressing is not obtainable for me. The clear vinyl actually suits this album's aesthetics extremely well. For a bootleg, this is some very good stuff ~ * <3

edit: my copy has side B and D's grooves off center so some parts sound a lil funky, nothing too bad, just when longer notes play they sound kinda warped :/ still recommend this pressing tho
