    At the time of typing this, Global A Go Go hasn't been pressed on vinyl since 2012. This box set is actually the cheapest way to get all 3 albums on vinyl, funnily enough. Plus you get some bonus tracks! Highly recommend picking this up

      As others have reported, good sound quality and beautiful presentation. I also had scratches on Streetcore, that thankfully, did not affect playback.

      For the price they’re asking, poly lined sleeves and more careful handling is to be expected.

      Overall, happy with the investment.

        The sound quality on these reissues is very good and I haven't noticed any glitches/non-fill/stitching (so common these days on modern pressings), so I don't have any complaints. The presentation is very nice, the book is well printed and the artwork quality is great. The little extras are nice, too.

        Both discs of "Rock Art and the X-Ray Style" have a slight edge warp, but they play fine.

        On side C of "Rock Art and the X-Ray Style", a piece of the label lamination is ripped.

        The first side of "Streetcore" has two thick scratches, the same issue that Mayfield_1 reported for two different copies. Luckily, the scratches on my copy don't cause skips, but I can hear faint clicking at the end of "Coma Girl" and beginning of "Get Down Moses".

        Overall, I think this is a great release and I am really pleased with it.

        P.S.: For some reason, on "Rock Art and the X-Ray Style" the C side has "Diggin' the New" before "Nitcomb", as opposed to previous versions of this album.

          Another record company gluing the contents sheet to the back of the set - please stop this!! It marks the back of the box when you remove it (see the submission back cover photo). Much like I noted on the Replacements Sorry Ma set The Replacements - Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash use the heat from a hairdryer (on low) to help remove the glue. It worked for me, but proceed with caution and good luck.

            fresh out of the sealed box set my copy of streetcore had two deep scratches - so i returned it to receive an new box set - again: streetcore had scratches - four this time along the pressing making the needle jump - returned it again - i wonder if the third shippment will be okay. fingers crossed!

              Beautiful presentation of Joe’s Mescaleros period. If you like the music you wont be disappointed, its all in here and so much more on top. Much more love went into this than into the 001 release. Great quality booklet, lyrics, handwritten notes, drawings and such stuff, enough to get you thru a day or a weekend. Only complaint was the sleeves the records came in, you have to be careful taking them out as they can get scuffed by these. Straight out for wash (loads of crap on them) and in an anti static inners. The quality of the sound is great imo. Bang for a buck.
