    What a clean pressing and mastering of a quirky and delightful recording. Recommended.

      Contact Records in Oakland CA has multiple copies of this for 24 bux. Just sayin'...

          One the strangest and best records I own. Sounds awesome and the music is truly unique and enjoyable.

            Picked up a brand new, sealed copy today at a local record store outside Toronto for $28. Likely a repress.

              Any news when and where a repress will become available? Much appreciated 🐈

                Anyone know if this is still available anywhere for a decent price?

                  I'm late to the game as i've missed the original release of this reissue but, lucky me, i've managed to find a copy recently after listening to a digital copy for some time.
                  I obviously never have listened to an OG but i must say i'm surprised by the quality of this. It's a no-fuss-release but everything is spot-on: the record is flat, clean (thanks to the nice inner-sleeve) & totally noise-free.
                  The artwork is simple and the added insert is a nice bonus.
                  And, as far as i can tell on my decent set-up, the music feels rich & dynamic. An obvious improvement over the digital files.
                  The only way to improve this would have been to use a sturdy/tip-on jacket, use a variant of the OG labels and to add an OBI. But for the price i've paid this, i can't complain!
                  I wish all reissues were like that...

                    Extremely high quality pressing here. I'm pretty amazed at the quality, I usually don't expect that in a repress of something from 40 years ago.

                      Palto Flats did a better pressing job on this than the Midori Takada LP thats for sure. I can't tell much of a difference between this and the OG. OG maybe a touch more open...
