    Awesome sound, awesome music. The 7" is an amazing throwback!
    • gquady09's avatar
      Album sounds brilliant. No complaints at all! It is important to note to prospective buyers that only the Sweet Children 7” spins at 45RPM. The main album is at the standard 33RPM speed.

        Great sounding pressing. If you are fan, you should absolutely add this one
        • craicaddict's avatar
          This is a lovely little package to own. Quality sleeve, flat vinyl, and a great job on the sound. Highly recommended.

            Great pressing! No sibilance and no surface noise/pops/etc that I could hear. Really worth the minuscule price for this release.
