Two copies in - both from HMV, one online, the other a store - and both jump in C2 at the first "just drive the car" lyric, and then a 'stick' in C3.
These are then followed by jumps in D2.
Anybody else have these problems?

Astonishing!
This LP lasts 58:32!
I didn't think that vinyl could cope with that length of playing time?
Mind you, there's not much evidence of lots of bass in there...

Nevertheless, this is a superb record of the band at their best.

The timing for the last track, 'Mental Medication' is wrong on both the label and the sleeve: it is NOT 6'12"; it is 7'31".
The CD timings are correct; the vinyl ones are not.
I have corrected the UK first press vinyl version.

Ten songs and seven of them either mention "love" specifically in the title or within the lyrics.
No, it's not really a proper prog album at all as the Moodies slip yet further into the mire of pop fluff.
