    I picked up a copy of this compilation recently in a bulk lot. Like many others, I was blown away with the quality - superb doesn’t do it justice. Could this be THE reference copy of Isaak’s “Wicked Game”..?

        On The RTR Turntable today for play-grading and fully agree with comments below; the noise floor, quietness of the pressing leave many other so called audiophile records in it's wake. A stunning example of how it can and should be done. Pressed at ALSDORF.

          This pressing is awesome! Rich, dynamic and very musical. Huge soundstage makes you feel the artist is there with you.

            This pressing is amazing. No pops or cracks. Dynamic is great, the sound is crystal clear.

              Got this super-cheap at a flea market, cleaned it and I am simply blown away by the sound quality of this record! Holy moly, I wish current pressings would sound as dynamic and clear as this one. This is within the top-ten of the best sounding records I own. Get it, you won't regret it.

                I found this in Stockholm a few years ago and thought it was a single. I was shocked, it's a full album! It sounds absolutely beautiful, fantastic pressing.

                      Source Wiki:
                      "Wicked Game" is a song by American rock musician Chris Isaak, released from his third studio album Heart Shaped World (1989). Despite being released as a single in 1989, it did not become a hit until it was featured in the 1990 David Lynch film Wild at Heart. Lee Chesnut, an Atlanta radio station music director who loved David Lynch films, began playing the song, and it quickly became an American top-ten hit in January 1991, reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the first hit song of Isaak's career. Additionally, the single became a number-one hit in Belgium and reached the top 10 in several other nations.

                      "Wicked Game" has been covered by many other artists and been featured in numerous movies and television series and advertisements, so much so that Dazed magazine questioned whether it might be the most influential love song in modern music.[1] It has subsequently received retrospective critical acclaim, being listed in the 2010 book 1001 Songs You Must Hear Before You Die, and noted by Dave Marsh in an updated edition of his 1989 book The Heart of Rock & Soul: The 1001 Greatest Singles Ever Made.
