Very nice audiophile sounding pressing. Perhaps one of my top five sounding records. Lots of clarity in all the instruments. Must have been an all analog recording. Doesn't have that "thin and computer" digital sound typical of 80s records.

The only Simply Red album I would have. Pretty solid album but for me personally, the lower tempo songs are the gems and the faster more upbeat at the fillers. Sad Old Red, Heaven, Money's Too Tight (To Mention), Holding Back The Years are the tracks that make the album and are that good, make the album worth buying despite the other songs feeling like fillers.
