Two brilliant tunes together! They are eargasmic, they cover me in goose bumps.

This record is worth it, even with the mild pressing fault. Now when Ambient Jazz plays, I dont hear a skip or a pop at all but I think it does skip 1 revolution of the platter. The skip happens in a place where you can work around it if you just remember where it happens at. It skips the record forward, not backward. But regardless, this is timeless house music with a lot of ideas all wrapped into a nice 12". Its almost as if when you drop the needle on it, rays of sunshine just beam outwards in all directions. This is soul music that could make Carl Craig crack a smile at a funeral. You can buy this blind. Its amazing trust me.

Sublime 12" from GU. Highly Recommended!

Works without skipping here. Techncis 1210, antiskating set to 0 or whatever desired (I had to try with antiskating). I'm using Grado (Prestige) DJ200i cartriges.

However, just as you say it's a pressing fault here. No doubt about that. I can clearly see the whole tonearm basically jumping up and down the first centimeter of the record. It's also noticeable since this generates a little "pop" or "click" where the tonearm almost jumps out of the groove.

I've encountered worse pressings of other records so this shouldn't necessarily be a deal breaker, but it certainly can be distractive and such a nice piece of music deserves better as Chris1972 hints.

Btw, Chris, try to adjust your tonearm height... It might help :-)
