    My version has the same print and barcode as the 2016 European version, 0602547875549, but without the download voucher or front sticker. On the runout matrix it has hand inscribed 010389336 A-2 on side A and 010389336 B-2 on side B. Both sides are also hand inscribed with MILES ABBEY ROAD RM30. Although visually it presents some small holes and irregularities, the overall listening experience is free of pops or clicks.

        Good sound but the pressing qualität is typical GZ. Littered with dust and paper debris, lots of crackle and a scratch made me return my copy. The seventeen seconds issue is way better. I cannot understand why GZ isn’t able to produce constant quality.

          A lot of dust in a surface, but clear easy with brush. Very flat, no clics, no pops. Great sound
