The copy I bought in Arizona was not gatefold.
However, it sounds fantastic, includes the gigantic poster mentioned & has the download code for the extra track with Justin.

Really great pressing. It's very quiet in general and the dynamics will make you very pleased.
Not all Target editions can live up to this quality. Pressed in Germany.

I did a side-by-side comparison with the same turntable and same cartridge today between this and the 2011 30th Anniversary edition. Both sound great, but this edition is much more quiet in between tracks and in general. On Side One you can hear an... See full review

Fantastic quality. We all know who Jamie Starr is I would hope.
I'm so glad they didn't give Morris Day lead vocals on "Oh Baby"

I'm playing back a near mint copy of this 1978 cassette and damn, I am amazed with the fantastic quality on both sides. I'm not using Dolby and there is no hiss or dynamic range issues at all. Just wow.

My copy has very little noise, pops or clicks, but just sounds pretty distorted in general on every track. What a shame that the queen of soul was given a pressing this crappy. 24.99 walmart?

Most copies are seriously warped, buy it used where seller has inspected and is honest. .

But is the barcode big enough ? Is it a secret FBI scan for Walmart? It's obvious LOL

My copy sounds great.

My copy is not crackly at all, with nice highs, mids and bass. It's pretty quiet in the softer passages, as well as in between songs. I'm sure the black vinyl edition coming in July 2021 is going to be a better spin for those who think this is noisy.... See full review

My copy, released ~~before~~ 06/12/21 has static noises on side one and side two , not loud pops, but just "plenty" of static noise to be pretty annoying. I've never had any 180 gram pressings with this much static noise, out of hundreds. Unbelievable.
posted a review of Ozzy Osbourne - No More Tears. 4 months ago
This 2002 edition has a smoother more dynamic sound than the 1995 reissue.
Especially on "Mama I'm Coming Home" and the epic "No More Tears"
Ozzy was on top of his game with this release, but where is the 180 Gram Remastered reissue at??

This is not pressed on 180 Gram vinyl, but you won't care when you hear how excellent the pressing is. It's so quiet with just the right mastering for vinyl. Not every track is a radio edit as well, which is a big plus. Even if you own all the... See full review

This edition of the self-titled Jim Stafford cassette was issued by RCA Music Service, before they were called BMG. The club editions have a distinct look , with two pink bars above and under the title on the spine of the case.

Yet another attempt by the group to re-record their hits without Lou Gramm.
It's like Journey without Steve Perry, it just doesn't sound right. Lou Gramm was not replaceable,
so even on a high quality SHM-CD it's still a disappointment.

Get this for the AC/DC cover of "You Shook Me All Night Long" by Bing Ji Ling.
It sounds like a cover by Scissor Sisters. Totally transformed from the hard rock original.

What I Like is not a remix, as it contains none of the original lyrics. Its a instrumental, so don't expect a new vocal club remix here.

"Ta Ra Ra Boom De Ay" was used in the movie Pricilla Queen of the Desert. (1994) with just a bit of ad-lib. LOL This is a fun recording, released somewhere around 1957 or 1958.

Many of these songs were transferred from 78 RPM vinyl, which was likely the only source Time Life could find. A little noisy, but nothing too extreme. Decent playback quality in general.

Excellent quality. But what was Kansas thinking with side B ? Most of it sounds like your in a state fair funhouse at times, and the novelty sound of it isn't very enjoyable.

No, that's a different pressing. This definitely has a red, white and blue swirl. It's pretty quiet (no pops or static) and has a decent quality. It feels like 180 Gram vinyl as well.

My copy is #0004 . The LP's are not 180 Gram vinyl, but do have great poly lined inner sleeves.
Paid $104 this month, about 4 years since it was released, There's more out there yet , but just a handful.
