Yes I agree below. Absolutely no quality control over releases ** directly*** commissioned by them for manufacture. The quality of their product vary from poor to above average (never excellent). It's the 'Walmart' of licensing.

Universal Music Special Markets is about the worst there is in terms of how it handles its catalog, by which I mean they hand over all their vinyl reissues to Rainbo and United and the result is junk. Same goes for titles they license to reissue labels like Porterhouse, Anthology, etc. Just pure junk.
