Sound quality on my copy is excellent. Too bad there are no printed inner sleeves.

indeed, BG & the German guys made again a cool work, I also have the PF's WYWH and the JA's Nothing's Shocking and they sound damn good. Honestly, I wish all the albums made today were at the same level.

Superb pressing. Sticker says it was mastered from the original analog tapes.
Deep and punchy bass, clear sound overall. If you're a fan of the band or the album, it's a must buy!

I finally got around to buying this and I have to agree with the others. This is probably the best sounding record in my collection.

hi everyone was browsing through the photos for this release. it says "made in usa" on the cover but on the record label it says "made in the Netherlands"? so this is a Europe issue? hmmmm

I totally remember my college radio station having a copy of this, and we played from it heavily. The naughty parts are scratched out (literally, those parts sound like they're being scratched by a hip-hop DJ). This was apparently the only U.S. version made on vinyl, and obviously very limited. But also very generic. White sleeves, white labels, no liners.

What is the red photos insert? Are there lyrics and credits inside or is it only a single sheet printed on both sides? I try to find releases with lyrics and credits inside.

Cheap as chips and pretty nice sounding. This was always the best sounding RHCP album (not counting 'The Getaway', which is absolutely gorgeous on vinyl). Much better than the atrocities that were committed later on, such as the 'Californication' vinyl debacle.
