Notes

The record is pressed on 180 gram white vinyl and comes in a matte heavyweight jacket designed by Phil Yamada accompanied by a matching poster. Most material originally released only on cassette in the 80's.

    I wish it was on black vinyl, colored never sounds as good.

        It looks like not just a repress, but a double album with all of these tracks plus bonus tracks is coming soon!! Even on white vinyl again.

          A repress would be nice! :) I would be fine with an unlimited release in black vinyl rather than paying 80 bucks.

            My copy is numbered "X29", does that mean #29? Fantastic record, one of my favorites. Record itself seems heavier than 180 gram, it's extremely thick and heavy vinyl.

              How many of these records were pressed? Under 1000 since there are only three boxes to fill in the number on the back cover.

                Awesome material, but be warned that the audio quality varies. As mentioned in the notes, a lot of this is recorded from cassette.

                To be fair, it's all very enjoyable. Ironically the demo mix of Blurred sounds fantastic, but other tracks do suffer little drops and distortion.

                Hey, this is the best you'll get.

                I'm surprised that it hasn't got a repress from Minimal Wave actually. Over 500 wants and 2 for sale, median price $60 (typing this in February 2017), surely that's reason enough for another 500 pressings?
