      Vinyl rips and over compressed. Sound quality is nothing more than decent. (I would guess the OG sources were not great to begin with though)

        Ref CD version. Good compilation of some of the more forgotten tracks of the day, but i am super pissed. I bought this to get nice digital copies to preserve my original vinyl, when many of the tracks are taken from vinyl in the first place, cleaned up and compressed!! AARRGG!! the vinyl still sounds better AVOID if you want clean music

          Stumbled over this having seen a YT vid featuring Richard Sen - this is a seriously well curated album. A wonderful snapshot of underground UK sounds from the late 80s to mid 90s. Quality. Get involved. Not least as it has Ability II on there (now silly money)
