What a wonderful album. Packed with huge tunes, months later and I’m still finding gems that I’d overlooked earlier. Sound quality on most tracks is on par with European recordings of the same era. If you’re a DJ you could do a killer hour set with just this album, that’s how many great tracks there are.

The LP's sound great, the 45 is unplayable. Right out of the sleeve constant skipping, so I cleaned it, and it still won't play.
