    Really good bootleg. As I can hear it's all there; the highs and lows, a good balance. A good substitute for a rerelease.

      I could get a copy of this unofficial LP, the sound is loud and clear... without distort, but would like to hear it on different turntables Hi-Fi or DJ to have a better opinion about how the sound varies. For me it is very expensive buy original first pressings due to skyrocketted prices on demand of this and I just paid for this $50.00 as a "duo pack offer" including the second album Danzig II - Lucifuge.

        I don't have a lot of problems with noise or pops on this record but overall it would say it's a bit tinny and flat. Not mastered well for vinyl. I bought it unaware it was a bootleg. Any idea when we might see an official pressing if the early Danzig?

          I just picked up a red one at my local record shop for nineteen bones. Was pretty stoked when my son pulled it out and showed me. I've been looking for a copy of this LP for a long while now. I suspected something was fishy by the "fake-ish" loose shrink wrap it was packaged in. However, put somewhat at ease by the outer sleeve: decent card stock cover.

          The sound quality is poor on the red pressing - I just listened to the whole album in one sitting. There are random pops everywhere (after a cleaning on my RCM) on every song - affecting one's listening experience when a solo isn't being ripped. Soul On Fire is way to noisy during its quiet passages; often over powering the music. Same goes for End Of Time's intro. One could say the vinyl is a bit to noisy for a new pressing and I wouldn't disagree, but the sonic impact is there. Stereophonics are good (guitar left channel; drums right). Getting into the dead wax on both sides is like listening to the fourth of July. There are no lyrics or song listing anywhere. Had I known what I know now I would have passed on this. Disappointed my record store stocked this counterfeit BUT some of the Desert Session counterfeits sound sublime. Dice rolled: snake eyes....

          I'm still on the lookout for a "quieter" official first pressing... but this will hold me over for the moment when I need to get my Danzig on.
