I have just received this pressing in VG+ and I’m in shock at how silent this near 40 year old vinyl is….it absolutely puts many of today’s new releases to shame. Not XTC’s best album but still very good in my view. The production and sound is awesome like so many of their albums new and old.
Just finished listening to it all the way through and not one pop or crackle….unbelievable!
New release vinyl should all sound this good but sadly they often are noisy from day one.

Can we please PLEASE have these CDs packaged in cardboard material and not plastic jewel cases?

This might be my all time favorite XTC album. US vinyl version sounds very good.

Xtc splashed out on the original LP version of this one. Not enough material to make a double LP. pressed on a Half inch bigger vinyl to squeeze on the full song list they wanted, with full sound quality. No micro grooves used. No track separation grooves. Die cut sleeve is really well constructed and laminated, oversized for the vinyl fit, with spine and printing. It also came in a clear plastic square sleeve, the plastic sleeve was not stickered, most people did no get one because the record store swapped em out for their own use. Press sealed on one end only.

The above Virgin Canada LP has JW/MCL and (CR) in the deadwax indicating the following.
Lacquers were cut by Joe Webster @ McLear Place Studios in Toronto (formerly RCA Studios, Toronto).
LP was manufactured @ CINRAM in Toronto.
