    Difficult to comprehend that this album is nearly 40 years old. A seminal album that gave light to many LGBT persons, in what was a horrific, dark period of history, that sadly again, is coming full circle. As relevant today, as it was then. Fantastic pressing, packaging and bonus material, makes this a perfect reissue.

      What to say about this pressing? Man! Turn that sh%t UP! Sounds BADDASS!
