I have collected records since the 1970's - I still collect and sell the 2nd copies, plus I find nice/rare/odd stuff now and again. I am a bit slow/old.

Amstrad cannot help you here - Crosley are not your friends. No amount of expensive hifi can correct a bad pressing. This just sounds flat and terrible.

agreed - this pressing is awful, low volume mastering - it stinks. Nothing to do with the HiFi equipment - my cartridge alone is around £500 (Ortofon 2m Black) - A bad production/mastering. Avoid.

Specials eponymous album (1979) is a 'harder' album lyrically and musically. 'I Just Can't Stop It,' is more Ska-Pop in places rather than Ska. Both albums sit together well, but comparing them is like comparing Mild to Bitter - both beer, but different ... See full review

I have weighed my copy - just (for) the record. Came out as 196 gram, so I can state that the 200 gram claim is accurate (ish.) Sound quality wise, this is a clear well-pressed issue with minimal surface noise. For the (low) price it is worth a punt, ... See full review

Please look at the record images, it clearly shows the colour of the record. A pale creamy green is how I would describe it.

You can 'excite' the luminescent qualities of the record by shining a bright light onto the record for a short time. Obviously, avoid direct heat transfer! A camera flash at close range will do it as well.

Sound quality sucks on both of these albums. The Bowie master just about sounds better, although another day and a few more beers maybe Mr. Pop's effort.

Great sound quality compared to later pressings - notably this 2016 effort Beastie Boys - Licensed To Ill - the 808 is loud and proud on this pressing, as it should be!
posted a review of Beastie Boys - Licensed To Ill. 3 months ago
the mastering on this edition is poor. Very quiet playback and the bass is lacking. I compared it to this pressing Beastie Boys - Licensed To Ill which is much more dynamic and has the missing bass that this 2016 pressing doesn't have. Avoid.

I would like to see images of the media, especially the promo cd and where it states country of origin, 'U.K.' I am not sure there are 4000 promotional copies?

Although Stating 'Disco Mix' On Both Labels, Both These Mixes Appear To Have Instrumental Extensions Rather Than Increased 'Disco' Tempo, The Vocals (Almost?) Identical To The 7" Version - I Am Unable To Find A Long Version On YouTube

Released in 1978 - record store price sticker dated. Great Album

This album is more jazz than rock, I reckon. Not sure of pop rock either. The genre is incorrect I think.

Good sound quality - massive dish-warp, some light pressing noise - Similar story with other FishPeople 2018 remasters I have found. The quality control should have been better,
