    This pressing is noisy as fuck. At least my copy. Even though it looks visibly perfect. Even after a cleaning. I still spin it cause it’s the Dots but man does the record sound like it was pressed in the 1920s.

      Discussin this album on a LPD forum, someone said he had a non-gatefold version. Does anyone know about this? Is it the Greek version?
