    The 45 "reissue" presented here is sourced from legit sources ....the overall quality and sound is just what it is ..."sound". Considering that the original recording may not be perfect by itself this is a exact replica done all legally and presented and made so you can afford to buy and have a 45 copy to play and enjoy.

      No offence to the label (because I really like them), but the quality on this is horrible (and I am by no means an audiophile, internet jerk or man with a secret agenda). This is the first time I'm warning people to reconsider buying a record. That should say something. Do any other buyers feel the same?

      I bought the 12" a while back (which is apparently a bootleg now banned from Discogs) and thought it sounded fine. There were a lot of comments about bad mastering on that release, but maybe I was just too excited to have the song to notice.

      Now that I have this 7" from Luv N' Haight, I took it for a test drive, and it's almost unplayable no matter how you EQ it. So I decided to see how it would fair against my 12" I bought back in the day...and while I now recognize that the 12" wasn't mastered very well (though it still plays ok and I'm still happy to have the record)'s at least 3x better than the sound on this 7".

      That's to say, if you hated the sound of the alleged bootleg, you're guaranteed to regret buying this 45. How can something this bad (which doesn't require a discerning ear to detect, just a functioning one), get the green light from such a good label? Is there a reason I'm ignorant of? Hopefully the 2xLP coming out will be better, but I don't have high expectations.
