    Absolutely thrilling to buy a triple vinyl set in the 21st century that is flawless!!! Super flat, heavy, not the first pop, click, dust boulder, etc....FIVE STARS!

      Sounds great to my ears, because of the 3 vinyl I was worried about warping but they're all flat and grooves are quiet even without a wash, overall a nice release, get it before prices go crazy....

        Awesome sounding on vinyl, get it whilst it is still there.

          Great Compilation. CD Version is a bit different. Fact>> Headstart for Happiness, Party Chambers, The Paris Match are "Early Versions". The Paris Match is sung by Paul Weller not by Tracey Thorn. Also Tacks as "The Lodgers feat. Dee C. Lee, Have You Ever Had It Blue, Dropping Bombs or Liife At A Top Peoples Health" are 7inch or 12" Remixes.
