    Anyone know if all 5 test pressings were found? Last I saw - years ago - only 4 had been found.

      This was cut from the original analogue assembly reel, on the same lathe that cut the original test pressing. The recent repress from 2022 was NOT. Do you homework before you buy.

        Surprised this one isn't more collectable. The cut and packaging is incredible. Essential for any Big Star fan IMO.
