Can anybody confirm if this comes with a huge poster as mentioned on the Notes section of this page?

"Comes with printed cardboard inner sleeve and huge poster"

My version of this pressing also has on/upper matrix run out - Buy and read 'Race Today' on side 2 and Jonz on side 1.

Linton Kwesi Johnson is one of the finest Reggae poets ever and he practically invented the genre of Reggae Dub poetry. This is his finest album and perfectly encapsulates what it was like as a black person living in a racially unfriendly Britain in the late 1970s, when the British National Party was on the rise. ' Sonny's Lettah (Anti-Sus Poem)' is a stunning song/poem that perfectly sums up what Linton is about and how he awx like a spokesperson for a generation of disaffected Black youth. The beats are brilliantly funky and very dubby at the same time. Fantastic British Reggae music that's up there with the best Jamaican political & socially conscious reggae.
