    If more than 1500 persons own this album already I wonder how many copies were originally made of this “limited edition”?

      Considering they ended all the US tours with Pulled Apart (and I assume the European tour?), I find it odd they have it listed on Side A and not B Otherwise this is just fantastic sounding, I mean just incredibly dynamic and detailed. I want more!

        B1 is relatively noisy, other than that it's solid. Happy to own it regardless

          10/10 pressing. This live version of Feelingpulledapartbyhorses is absolutely incredible. Would've loved to have seen The Smoke on here, though.

            Beautiful!! Sounds absolutely incredible. No surface noise after a quick ultrasonic clean. Saw them in San Francisco and they are so amazing live. Hope they release a North American Live Recordings EP next! :P

              Top Qualität. That‘s for sure. Nix desto trotz: eine einigermaßen sehr merkwürdige Version von „ free in the…“. Als würde die Platte Eiern. Tut sie aber nicht. Die Version eiert hier teilweise. Andere Songs sind hier jedoch überwältigend

                Sounds awesome. Be sure to pop it right in a MoFi cause it comes in a printed inner sleeve! Definitely snag it before it gets rare too😂

                  As everyone else is saying, this pressing sounds fantastic. So glad I got a hold of one.

                    Fantastic live recording and pressing. Very dynamic. If this truly is vinyl only / one time pressing it will become sought out very quickly

                      Sounds fantastic. Very quiet. One of the best Radiohead related records I’ve heard. Only negative - I wish it was longer. The version of Feelingpulledapartbyhorses is really good.
