    Nice pressing. Bass and drums have a lot of punch and everything sounds very organic on the record. Great mastering, very loud. This could be a nice example of how analog sounds better than the digital version // PT-BR: Boa prensagem. Baixo e bateria tem bastante punch e tudo soa muito orgânico. Ótima masterização, bem alta. Esse poderia ser um bom exemplo de como analógico soa melhor que a versão digital

      Of all the versions of this album I have heard across multiple formats, I would say this one is the best. Arun Chakraverty cut the album hot, without pulling any punches, somewhat similar to what George "Porky" Peckham would do at the time. A word of warning though: if your cartridge is a mediocre tracker/tracer, you'll notice some IGD at the end of each side. Also watch out for copies with groove wear and "burned in" IGD from the previous owner.

        Can anyone explain why people are paying more for a copy of this album without the free 7” than the identical one with a 7” .
        As already explained you could send off for the single if you bought it without one and the records are identical!!

          Purchasers of this first edition were able to write in to get the "Do It Clean" 7" single which appeared with later version of the album.
