Been wanting on wax for a while, thought I would take a chance. So much care and attention gone into beautiful artwork embossed on sleeve. Both records seriously warped and a awful pressing. Returned to sender

The new, third pressing sounds absolutely perfect. No problems at all, in contrast to the issues reported with previous pressings.

Nice music, INSANELY GREAT artwork (Sophie Bass !) ... but horrible pressing, really. I went through two copies and both were so bad, almost unlistenable. Unacceptable for that price and label that I thought was as audiophile as their equipment. At least I'm keeping it for the artwork.

The Discogs entry for this release has Robin Morrison as the mastering engineer. However, "GUY'S ELECTRIC" in the deadwax suggests it's actually Guy Davie at Electric Mastering. Anyone know for sure? Also, any idea where these were pressed? Cheers.

Can anyone explain the difference between the limited 1. press and the deluxe edition?
I got my copy when the limited edition was officially sold out but catalogue number is the same (the Dl is missing).

The initial run of 500 has sold out. But, the "deluxe" version is now up on Yazz Ahmed's bandcamp; https://yazzahmed.bandcamp.com/album/la-saboteuse-2 There is no mention of the 16p booklet - the only difference. The naim website does however say it includes the booklet; https://naim.bleepstores.com/release/81564-yazz-ahmed-la-saboteuse, who knows!

So, I guess they pressed them all up together. It would be interesting to see if clean copies are out there - I'm not interested if I can't play it! no matter how pretty they look. After reports that even after several cleans, the vinyl is very noisy, it does not entice me.

Great album mind, the digital album sounds boss.
