    Sounds AMAZING! Don't hesitate, this gets you in a mood. Great music, don't even bother YouTubing, this record is the real deal. Great repress.

      Normalizo is a truly stunning track, buy it just for that alone!

          I was pleasantly surprised to find a new repress a few months back, and was happy to pay $28 for it. A nice record to own, I hope Be With Records keeps it in print for as long as they can...

            So glad Be With are re-repressing this (and Event Horizon by The Necessaries too). Remember having a chat with them at the Independent Label Market at Spitalfields a few months back about the crazy prices their first run of this was going for on Discogs. Given the quality of the Andy Bey and Willie Hutch LPs I've got off them already I expect this'll be nothing but stellar too.

                Great album . For those who can't afford there is a nice 7" by mukatsuku with b side by dick Khoza classic SA funk . Under a fiver on Juno 😺

                  I can't believe the amount of times I stopped myself from buying a second copy - just as a back, when I come to see what's available the prices are ridiculous! There is no denying it is a fantastic record, an absolute gem in every way so the demand is understandable but surely it will be repressed? Surely?

                    Fantastic to see this reissued, maybe there is a hope for her whole back cat. to be put out?! (preferably on cd as well as vinyl)

                      Awesome Reissue. I've been waiting for this since the pre-order came online. Although my copy was delayed (probably got lost in the post) Rob was very helpfull. Great care, Be With Records can be held as an example. Keep it up!

                      BTW, my copy plays excellent.
