    This is THE only version to hear this album. It’s a totally different beast. ‘Porky Peckham’, none other will suffice.

      Anybody have an inner sleeve for sale? I have the Rhino version but no inner

        All digital remasters, vinyl, CD's or files have compressed the soul out of this masterpiece. Look for George 'Porky' Peckham analogue masters. It says 'Porky Prime Cuts', nothing else will do!

          Easily in top 10 best sounding vinyl pressings in my collection.
          Killer bass, gives you goosebumps. No wonder why this album is so iconic, perfectly recorded.
          Truly hypnotizing experience, highly recommended to buy !

            If anybody has an inner sleeve for this, let me know. I have the 2007 Rhino edition but can't find the inner

              Hi everyone. I seem to have this pressing with slightly different run-outs:
              Side A: FACT-10-OUTSIDE I B THIS IS THE WAY A PORKY PRIME CUT S-2 (similar to var 32)
              Side B: FACT 10-INSIDE I A A PORKY PRIME CUT - STEP S-2 (also S-2 instead of W-2)
              Does this sound familiar?

                Hey, can anyone assist with a ? Whilst it states above that the LP was released on 15 June 1979, I have a first pressing in original cello (bought from HMV) for UK pounds 2.29 (70p off) and the HMV sticker date state 8.8.79...So what date is the true release date? BTW, I have listened to a number of re-issues of the LP and I have to say the first issue is defo the best.

                  Hearing the mix of the original vinyl pressing is fascinating after years of having only heard this on other forms of media. It's very cool, but definitely different.

                    I was at Manchester University when this masterpiece was released on my birthday in 1979. I was introduced to the album by a friend of mine called Stephen Parker, who was also at this Uni too. It is, and still remains, one of my top LPs of all time (I have 1st press), and I have over 7K in my collection, so that says a lot. By pure happenstance, I was outside Tony Wilson's "Factory" in Hulme the night Joy Division was paying a gig there, when latter on Ian ended his life. A piece of history that will stay with me forever. RIP Ian, you died too young, but live on through your lyrics and music.
