    Great pressing. Quiet and flat. Brilliant vocal clarity make theses recordings jump out of the speakers.

      sounds like i got one of the distortion-free pressings... overall an exceptionally clean listen, not a pop or crackle outside of the first 2-3secs of run-in. the dynamic range of her vocals jump off every track ; really feels like an in-room performance. an absolute must-have for any PJ fan

        A Fantastic release and my favorite of all the Demos releases alongside the White Chalk - Demos lp. I think this is also the best sounding of the demos set and equal to PJs main releases. My record is very well pressed and the mastering vivid and very present. In some ways this betters the full band "Dry" release in terms of intensity and some of the vocals here.
        A very highly recommended purchase...I'd say essential if you are a PJ Harvey aficionado.

          Posting here in case others, like me assumed all copies come with download cards. I bought these 5 demo LPs just recently from a very large US-based web store. There is no pattern I can figure out as to which ones come with the sticker and download card.
          1) PJ Harvey - Dry - Demos - HAS sticker. presumably download card, no "Autorip" from merchant
          2) PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love - Demos - HAS sticker. presumably download card, HAS "Autorip" from merchant
          3) PJ Harvey - Is This Desire? - Demos - no sticker. presumably no download card, no "Autorip" from merchant
          4) PJ Harvey - Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea - Demos - no sticker. presumably no download card, HAS "Autorip" from merchant
          5) PJ Harvey - Uh Huh Her ‎– Demos - no sticker. presumably no download card, HAS "Autorip" from merchant

            This is a solid pressing. Clean wax. Plays silently with no background noise. The music sounds big and jumps out of the speakers projecting a spellbinding soundstage. Happy with the whole thing.

              Unfortunately, my copy is not a perfect ,quiet pressing....little noises all the way through the record that you really hear in quiet moments and between songs....otherwise I really like how it sounds....

                This came out at the precise moment. I was about to drop $300 for an unscratched copy from 1992 with the bonus demonstration disc. It’s worth the purchase for the acoustic Joe alone.

                    I'm onto my 3rd copy of this pressing. The previous 2 had extreme distortion. Optimal pressed these.
                    • vacantmoon's avatar
                      Have had 2 copies of this played mostly very quiet with minimal surface noise *but* had a tiny piece of paper stuck in the groove at the start of Side 2, causing loud pops akin to a scratch. The other copy was marred by several rough patches of surface static during very quiet passenges, particularly during the last 2 tracks of the album. I compared the static issue of these tracks with the first copy I had and it was night/day. Hopefully the 3rd copy will be the charm. Because otherwise the music sounds Gorgeous.
