    I bought my copy in 2023. Absolutely no way to tell that this is a repress (and of course it must be) - same matrix, same sleeve etc. Actually good sound but some sharp sibilance on side C while the three other sides are without problems. So, I would rate it 3,5/5. Of course still better than the CD and overall a balanced sounding record, flat and without any clicks, pops or other noises.

      There’s been a rumour going around that some early copies of the album on Double LP have tracks from The Clash album ‘Live At Shea Stadium’ in place of side 2 on LP 1. First saw that rumour on Wikipedia. Can anybody confirm that?

        this is a decent 2 lp issue from 2008, no gatefold sleeve or anything like that, i felt the last record from 2014 rock or bust was better then this one.......
