    Seems like this pressing doesn't sound great, I'm guessing it's the original recording but the sound is not quality.

      My pressing sounds great. No issues and LOVE this track. Instant classic.

        The clip here sounds lovely, but that's nowt to do with this record as far as I can see (without opening youtube and looking properly -edit- looked here on discogs and you could grab any LP of hers for a bargain price (at first glance...)).

        You can't kid a kidder, Fryer! Why not go back to finding rare sessions by artists that have swearing on them? (They are much better value; for my money, any road, lad)!

        (Too many brackets is not the half of it).

          "Playing with fire, gonna get burned...playing with fire, when will I learn?" This is very sound advice, the fire brigade really ought to license this song to promote fire safety among young people - as my mam is often prone to say, today's youth may know how to crush virtual candy and make hashtags out of animated meme gifs but are completely lost when it comes to extinguishing a blazing pan of red hot cooking oil that is burning dangerously out of control. Making young and impressionable kids aged 5 and upwards listen to this while being shown pictures of third degree burns would be a sobering reminder of the destructive power of fire, while also lightening the mood a little bit with some top quality mid-tempo disco boogie.

            The pressing quality is absolutely disastrous. I listened to it on a proper audio system and it is just plain horrific. No depth and distortion all over the place...

            Edit: To be fair it might be the copy I listened to, but I still think the quality of all these 7s is really bad

                I'm all for making this work more accessible but why not a 12" ? Lihue is such a great cut, it really deserved the full treatment on a full size platter
