This copy sounds like a version of the album I used to have in MP3 years ago honestly, same lofi and level of fuzz to it

Can anyone comment on why this label doesn't just repress this given demand? Just watched a sealed copy of this sell for 200 bucks inside of five minutes after it was posted. Demand is there, so what's the problem exactly, is there a story here?

Renatar's comments cover the "original mix", but if anyone is wondering about how the mastering of the "release mix" compares to the BAF release (https://www.discogs.com/release/13109982-The-Congos-Heart-Of-The-Congos), it is practically indistinguishable to both my ears and every tool I can run the waveform through - so get whichever one you can, they're virtually identical in terms of mastering.

I personally plan to stick with this one, because it has everything from the BAF release and more.

I have this issue with KLP005 A CONGOS & KLP005 B SCIENTIST matrix numbers, only my copy has blue Black Art labels not listed anywhere as far as I can see.

My copy sounds very bad too, expecially on A side and after reading the comments I realized the problem.
I really like this album and I think it doesn't deserve such treatment. Very disappointed!

I love reggae but few albums in the genre bring the word "epic" to mind. Heart of the Congos is an EPIC album. RIP Lee Perry. This Blood & Fire pressing is the edition to try to find. The artwork is amazing, the sound is beautiful, and the songs are extended seamlessly with their dubs. Hell get the B&F CD version as well for more of the art and bonus cuts.

Actually the same as the first french Jah Live press (the one with Cedric Myton face on label).
Same SACEM number 89001 (company which hold the copyrights), same tracks lenght.
