My copy is nearly pristine - some slight distortion in a few of the heavier sections, but no cracks and pops.Unfortunately, the last track on side C has a skip that keeps looping the same three or so seconds. There's no visible scratch or dirt, so it's a bit of a bummer on a nearly flawless pressing.
My favourite Boards album, but then each one of them is my favourite but for different things, this one is excellent for just careless relaxation, lounging and daydreaming. The record itself is.. pretty nice, could be better, could do without a few cyclic crackles at the start of 3 out of 4 sides, oh and there was mysterious substance all over my side D that I had to clean off ?? I don't want to say someone may have jizzed on my copy of Campfire Headphase.. but that was weird to find.
Just been reading through all these comments on the repressings of the boc vinyl. So far I've gotten Hi Scores, MHTRTC, Twoism, ABPOITC… all of them were well pressed and played well without any surface noise or errors. But man, from what people have said about TCH and TransCanadaHighway, and Geogaddi, (and I've read Twoism had issues too) it seems they really fakked something up in these repressings. Campfire Headphase is probably my least favourite boc album so I'm gonna save it for last, and I'm glad I chose to do so. Hoping I can get the newest one that ISN'T a bad pressing.
I have the same problem with side c and d. What a waste of money. I bought it from a record store as an exchange for a badly pressed American reissue of SAW 2. Now I'm stuck with another poor-sounding record. Thanks warp and warner for screwing the fans.
Got my copy of this today from Bleep. I think the new batches they have been pressing have solved these issues mentioned below, I can't find any of the problems on mine. Plays great with little surface noise, and i have no clicks or distortion. I would be wary though when buying from resellers and other stores as they may be selling you the bad copies with flaws.
just received the replacements, they only send the vinyls without the picture cover, both vinyls have exactly the same (identical i would say) mark/trace which cause audible cracks & pops. how amature is that ?
