Sticker on shrink wrap reads:

Different tracklisting than the original release. On original release "Down In A Hole" was the second-to-last track, some later reprints move it to track 4 instead. This vinyl version moves it to track 4, which also means the Side B opener ("Dirt") is instead track B2 and the Side A closer ("Junkhead") is the new Side B opener.

B4 is not listed on the jacket or label.

Includes a printed inner sleeve with lyrics & credits.

Produced at One on One and Eldorado, 1992.
Mixed at Eldorado.
Mastered at Future Disc, Hollywood, CA.

Why is this so expensive and hard to find? UwU

Anyone who says the CD sounds better than this pressing is insane, or just has a poorly setup vinyl rig. This is FAR superior to any CD release out there, period.

Sounds fantastic all the way through. Not sure what the negative reviews are for.

I own the original european version, japanese cd and 2 MOV represses (coloured & standard black versions). The MOV (i mean both of them, the black and the dark red version) sounds brighter, maybe stronger with nice balance but NOT like the cd. Overall MOV here did some great job. I really don't know which sounds"better" but the MOV represses (they sound exactly the same, regardless of the colour) are excellent...ALL ARE EXCELLENT! Cover, printed inner bag, heavy flat vinyl + SOUND. I really enjoy both of them.

This vinyl version sounds really perfect and it's probably the best press on this album.

I think all the 5 star reviews only listed to the first tracks of each side. This pressing is decent, however the last tracks on A/B are not listenable...Unfortunately two of Alice in Chains best songs, Rooster and Would? are massively affected by inner groove distortion. They should rerelease Dirt on 2xLPs like Facelift and not force the whole album on a single record.

So never spend more than 30 bucks on this version - you'll be disappointed
AIC will rerelease their albums on vinyl since they withdraw from the MOV contracts so just be patient :)
And this issue is not caused by my setup

Excellent pressing and a phenomenal album- pressed very loudly, and very quietly regarding surface noise. Punchy, and a great soundstage too. Not sure if these MOVs are sourced from analog or digital but this pressing sure beats any other digital format I’ve heard Dirt on! I’d definitely recommend giving this record a good wet cleaning before playing, as it came in the cardboard replica sleeve, which left a bit of paper dust and fragments in the grooves. Layne’s voice shines through the well layered bass, drums, and guitar tracks, which are all very present and well seated in the mix, and Jerry Cantrell’s guitar slices through each track like a knife. 11/10, been looking for this for ages and it was well worth picking up. I found my copy in the wild for msrp so there’s still hope beyond the scalpers!

I’ve listened to Dirt on CD and digital for years and this vinyl pressing sounds great to me. A lot of what people are complaining about here is just how the album has always sounded. Jar of Flies and Unplugged are much better sounding recordings. The MOV pressings of those 2 albums would pass audiophile muster a bit easier. Personally I wouldn’t let the negative reviews deter you if you want to own this classic album on vinyl. Would I buy a 2xLP newly remastered version? Absolutely. Although I’m not sure much more could be done with the recording.

Got a copy of this one a couple of months ago for 20 euros in a small shop from the city I live in.... Jizz now Discogs put the cheapest option on 49 euros... Even more. Sounds cool but It's crazy how prices rise

Grab this and let others pay over 300 dollars for red colored vinyl. Same mastering as the red. People are funny. Personally, I don't like red enough to pay almost 10 times the price. Amazed this hasn't been reissued again or at a minimum repressdd.
