The fifth Talk Talk album, released in September 1991.

CD pressing variation: Most pressings of this album on CD have tracks 3 & 4 overlapping for about 30 seconds. The US Polydor version has no overlap, offering the full versions of both songs. "New Grass" is about 6 seconds shorter on the US CD though. The US version of "Taphead" features a faint 4-second instrumental fragment at the beginning not found on the UK CD.

Does anyone know how many copies were pressed of the first vinyl release?

I must have lucked out since I just received this from Amazon USA. Side 1 was Flat and Side 2 was Slightly Dished which was cured by my Record Clamp. Other than a few very small vinyl ticks I was very pleased with how this played. It sounded fantastic and the Original Verve at its present cost holds no guarantee that it will play well. This one is a keeper for me.

I'm curious, does this version has the "hidden" instrumental intro on Taphead like on the US CD/Bada Bing LP versions?

I ordered this and the European release to compare and they are nearly identical (first 4 seconds of Taphead not being on the UK release). I think (like most modern records) both pressings are hit or miss regarding the quality of the pressing, and that has more to do with quality control on the plant’s front. I’ve also noticed that many people had issues with the original pressing too. My advice is to order/purchase from an outlet with a generous return policy and order/return until you get a good one.

Scalpers trying to pull in $40+ for this thing... Ha ha ha. It was literally cut from the CD masters. Check the first comment, that person got the info straight from the label: https://www.analogplanet.com/content/talk-talks-1991-sonic-spectacular-gets-first-american-vinyl-issue

So, yeah. It's trash.

Very nice dynamic pressing, better than the first badabing issue, that's right. But one sad fact: Badabing managed to include the very silent 4 seconds of guitar sound at the beginning of side 2 before the song "Taphead" starts. On this polydor pressing this little piece of talk talk music is missing.

Does anyone know which versions of each track is on this unofficial release? It looks like a mix of originals from laughing Stock and the tracks from the singles which also appeared on Missing Pieces.

There was a second pressing was cut by Kevin Gray (his initials, KPG@CA can be found on the dead wax. That’s how you know you’ve got this second pressing). Everything I’ve read states the second, Kevin Gray cut, pressing by BaDaBing is far superior to the first.

This is the pressing I have and it’s excellent.

This is likely why there is a disparity in quality between those who bought early pressings and those who bought later pressings. If you can get this second kevin gray press, highly recommended.

This vinyl issue is a straight up transfer from the standard uk cd.The crossfade from After The Flood to Taphead is split between side one and side two. ie you can hear the start of Taphead at the end of side one for about a minute.
Back To Black didnt bother to use the original non-crossfade vinyl masters. Lazy transfer. Dont waste your money
