    Spent 7 € in a local record shop for a near mint condition. Sounds really legit. Nice dynamics and clear sound.
    Can recommend this pressing.

        Really worth the 5E I paid, even if it is for two songs. Surprisingly rich sound.

          Not gonna lie, bought it for 1.5€ for some pure "Down Under" nostalgia value. I enjoyed it much more than anticipated. Fun, light record with very good sound quality.

            Very well produced album. This pressing sounds rich and dynamic.

              Hello everybody, how do they two versions differ from each other?

                This is actually not bad at all! The title "Business As Usual" is a bit misleading since the rest of their albums are pure rubbish. But If you take it through a first suspicious listen you'll find that the often hated saxophone really does a fine job on tracks like "Down by the sea" etc.
