    Why oh why is this split between two slabs of vinyl when one would easily work and sound good? I know, I know, don't tell me. Paul Weller is doing the same these days. Like to think if somehow the Clash were still releasing music they would stipulate no double albums if one will do.

      Any impressions on the vinyl sound quality? Does anyone know if the vinyl mastering is the same between the European / U.S. releases?

        Interesting the way the album artwork is presented as to purposely obscure the word “named” so that it reads, “The Boy Naif.”
