        Sigh, trying to figure out the matrix on mine just now, It slipped and scuffed the end of A side and now has a tick...before that I can say that this is an amazing pressing and sounds great.

          Any ideas on when this is from? Clues as to sleeve stock, vinyl weight, etc?

            Big fan of this pressing on the whole. Persuasion sounds so lively and haunting. Highly recommended x

                A little known fact about this cover relates to the Range Rover in the picture. The cover was designed to look like a cheesy 'nice' LP of the type sold in bargain bins in shops from this period. Therefore buyers may buy it thinking it was easy listening and then be shocked when they heard it! Of course, the photos were at Beachy Head a famous suicide spot. Now this part is all well known. However, if you search in the music press from the time, you will find that the Range Rover had nothing to do with the band. It was actually owned by a couple who had committed suicide off the cliff in the background. Hence the picture of the Range Rover on its own on the cover back.

                      Regarding the 'Footnote' about the Range Rover in the notes section: I reckon that can safely be put down to deliberate misinformation that TG were happy to run with, given their (especially Gen's) fondness for pranks and fake stories - see also the madeup Hamburger Lady story from one of their artist friends in the US.

                      The more mundane explanation that I've heard over the years is that they just rented the car for the photoshoot. Gen and Sleazy can even be seen sitting in the back of it in the booklet for the 2xCD reissue, which at the very least debunks the claim that it was "nothing to do with the band". The fake numberplate they put on it (CFT 23 TG) is a nice touch.

                      Edit: Drew Daniel's 33 1/3 book on 20JFG confirms that it was rented (“at considerable expense, actually”) and they drove it to Beachy Head to use as part of the photoshoot. There may also be a reference to it in Wreckers Of Civilisation (Simon Ford) but can't find my copy right now. Cosey's book doesn't mention it.

                      TL;DR - there may be a case for deleting that 'Footnote' para from the Notes section. I just find it mildly amusing, and 'very TG', that someone's taken an old (and now demonstrably false) music press story at face value and added it to Discogs. :)

                        The outer sleeve craftsmanship for this is just awful. On similar reissues of other TG material the other covers don't seem to collapse outwards and dilate, not sure why this one does it.

                        Other than that the record itself seems to be more susceptible to scratches than other modern ones, even when putting it in and out of the other sleeve. When you slide the record in there's a chance that the record gets caught on the circular cut of the inner sleeve, which happens to me virtually all the time.

                        Using the digital version as a comparison it sounds fine, for people complaining of hiss the original pressings (and the digital copies) seem to also have that same problem as most of their albums were recorded with fairly inferior recording equipment. It will sound worse with headphones as you hear the same hissing sound, but with actual speakers it sounds very good. That is, if you're brave enough to blast Persuasion on high volume with your family around.
