Anybody got a 7” of The Sweetest Taboo inside the gatefold ? Wondering wether it’s the correct release, or not, or even a singularity.

Smooth Operator is a different take than on the US release. I don't know about other pressings.

I agree. Picked up a copy today at my record store for very little money and it sounds fantastic :)

There is no need for any "High End Audiophile" reissue of this album. This version sounds great!
