    I bought this on release and it sounds just as good now as it did then. Great pressing.

      Contains very limited edition Nick Cave 12" reading extracts from his forthcoming novel "And The Ass Saw The Angel"

        My copy has an apparent pressing issue in the harmonica section of "Mercy" which causes it to skip. Exhibited the issue since the first play. No dust or scratches. Otherwise fine.
