    Should the "Rough Trade Exclusive Retailler" infos be removed as it has been and actualy is still available to purchase on iMusic webstore?

      Yes I have to echo that it is a great pressing. Really flat and quiet. Fantastic album. Superb!

        Still plenty of stock of the green version at Rough Trade, went out of stock and keeps coming back in, wondering if this really was limited to 3000 or if it just didn’t get the interest because of all the variations. Shame about the crappy scan cover and no gatefold otherwise a pretty solid press.
        • rhino4evr's avatar
          It certainly took a Awhile, but ultimately happy with the pressing which is flat , and quiet . The overall production of this release is open to debate given the source material. I’m quite happy either way.

            I tend to shy away from coloured vinyl as the quality of pressings tend to vary hugely but I'm pleased that I pulled the trigger on this Rough Trade green as it sounds great. My copy is also flat & quiet with no pops or crackle however inner sleeves are not poly lined.

              Great pressing. in the past I have listened to 3 or 4 versions and none of them sounded that good. fully recommended

                The pressing sounds really good, better than my ‘89 copy, just a few minor issues.
                1) I could probably eat my coco pops out of both records.
                2) The artwork is bloody awful, sorry, but was it photocopied (badly) from an old copy with the saturation maxed out?

                Anyhoo, apart from that, really pleased to have a new copy of this fine album.

                  This is a really good pressing. Just got mine today and it sounds so good.
                  • trubloff's avatar
                    Clean and very quiet pressing. Sounds great. Delighted to have a copy!

                      Good pressing. Was worried there for a while. Gatefold would have been good.
