      Stevie Wonder pastiche. I've never understood the demand for this LP.

        Has some noise on side A and some clicks and pops on side B. Mastering sounds not very clear too, however I don't know the original source.

            I gave this record good clean with Audio Desk Ultrasonic and I find this reissue just fine. The vinyl is quiet and sound is quite good. For the price I wound recommend it!

              just got this copy in, this is no scorpio bootleg, it sounds to good for that, i honestly think this is an official release.

                Pretty sure this is just another Scorpio bootleg passing itself off as official. Regardless, the artist has stated that they had no involvement and aren't being paid.

                  Sounds a bit flat. Have to take mid range down and up the bass to give it life…. Sounds OK though.

                    People keep asking for a review of the best and worst sounding vinyl copies.

                    Judging these from experience of having owned 3 originals at one time, all of the below and a lesser fun time taking a punt on the worst ones. I kept one original, one Japanese and one official 2019 re-release version.

                    Hopefully i can shed a fair light on all of them although i know, what we hear and what on, is subjective.
                    My equipment is all analog, 1984 formula sound pm80, Technics 1210, Audio Technica 95e, 1980s Pioneer amp and speakers.

                    #1 Original 1977 Although some of these had a little light noise on the quiet intros... luck of the draw?

                    #2 Japanese 2012 Shout versions, is almost 99,9 percent true to the original, perfection in every way packaging with textured sleeve just like original, and sounds fabulous, not sure it can it be as good as pressed from the 77 master? Probably not quite, but if you can afford one go for it.

                    #3 Sure Shot 1993 Nice sound, just silver label without chiaroscuro design.

                    #4 Soul Brother - 1999 release (Some of the vinyl presses from this label in the past have had their problems, luck of the draw, but sound is OK)

                    #5 Official re-release 2019* White labels with black text version. and printed CHIAROSCURO / CR-189 front of sleeve bottom left. (well made music stamped in run-out) Not bad overall, the difference is night and day compared to the ones below. Nice budget version.

                    EBAY sellers have been using the re- release picture and sending out scorpio unofficial so be careful and ask.

                    All down hill from here

                    2014 / 2017 / unofficial, have repro labels. Flat sounding, bumpy vinyl, distortion on highs. BIG TELL,,, the unofficial ones. DO NOT have Chiaroscuro / CR-189 on front sleeve at bottom left. (See above for official re-release.

                      I have this pressing and the only issue I had was the spindle hole being slightly small. Plays great on my system. Amazing album.

                        I got my copy yesterday :)
                        Excellent quality pressing, rich, deep and accurate sound. Voices are crystal clear. Too bad there is slight background noise during the first seconds of each side, but I am not sure that all copies will suffer from this as mine shows unfortunately some inner sleeve marks that I clearly suspect to cause this noise. I noticed a very few distortions, maybe 2 or 3 times on the whole LP when listening very carefully. Cover printing quality is very nice, original art is entirely duplicated on front and back.
                        However, I don't have the 2014 pressing to compare. All that I can say is that I am, let's say 95% satisfied !
