    This Pitman pressing has the big, room filling, stadium sound that you would expect from 80s DL. Booming bass and drums dominate this album and may slightly overwhelm the vocals and guitar work, obscuring their detail. Comparing this to my HRM pressing, I found THAT one has a less pronounced bass level but a marginally better vocal clarity. A reviewer for that pressing described it as more balanced, but I found the HRM pressing has a lesser impact of sound when comparing it to this Pitman pressing, having a larger presence.

      My copy has 810 308-1 M-1 on both center labels, not 422-810 308-1 M-1. Can't find another version on Discogs without the 422. Everything else is consistant with Variant 3.

        I don’t know the source for this pressing, but it certainly sounds digital. Not bad, but the vocal is a bit suppressed in the soundstage, and sound as a whole lacks presence and dynamics.

          Sounds great my copy is clean all the way through and is in almost mint condition both jacket and vinyl. This is the best pressing out of my pyromania copy’s. Highly recommend this pressing.

            My sleeve has a misprint, Action Not Words and Comin’ Under Fire are switched (they are correct on label & media). I also have “Be a Grizzly” on B side runout, but no “If You’re Gonna Be a Bear” on A side.

              My dead wax is the same but says BE A GRIZZLY not GE A GRIZZLY on side B and no 0704 on back cover it does have 56 on record label.
