So, my disc label looks exactly like this, with the 422-823 655-1 Y-1 on it but my cover does not have the bar code on the back. Looked through a ton of the pressings and can't find an exact match. Anyone else?

this is the original pressing from 1983 ripped.


Thanks for that. I can already tell it sounds better than my Mondo re-issue - even via YouTube. Yours sounds much fuller. I'm convinced Mondo and WW quality control blows ... See full review

My copy isn't so much noisy as it is ridiculously "thin" sounding. Even cranking my sub up doesn't help much. It doesn't sound "meticulously mastered," it sounds like shit. But I'd like to compare it to an original pressing to see if it's just the way ... See full review

I'd honestly just prefer a black pressing of these records.


I've been saying this for years. i wish these companies would get it through their thick heads that some of us just want good sounding records, not goofy colors.

Thank you for the invitation to your group. I just joined. I've tried for a couple of years to get people to participate in another soundtracks group on here with zero response.

This sounds ok. I'm completely underwhelmed by the packaging. Yes, I know sound is what matters most...still. This is a single sleeve cover with both discs shoved in there. I hate when these companies do that and would much prefer a thick gatefold. The ... See full review

This is one of my favorite scores to listen to on vinyl. It came with a download card and while I can listen to it on my phone or in the car, it does not compare to hearing it on vinyl. My copy does have occasional bits of surface noise but they are few ... See full review

Update 8-28-18: Ok, after my initial glowing review I decided to go back and be more critical because I recently upgraded my speakers. As with all other Waxwork records, this one suffers from surface noise. Note: not pops or crackles but just surface ... See full review

I'm surprised by the negative reviews on the sound quality. Mine sounds fine. No surface noise. I don't have an original to compare it to...but the bass is heavy and it's clear. I'm more disappointed by the 'bare bones' releases Get On Down does. I'm ew ... See full review

I agree that this is one of the better sounding pressings that Waxwork has released. Compare this to say, Shock Waves, and it's night and day. That said, it's not perfect. There is still underlying surface noise in a few spots, particularly where the ... See full review

Very much so, which I think contributed to the damage to the cover during shipping. I was surprised, as the box they used was very thick and there was no outside damage. But the record cover sustained those telltale tears on the top that are the result ... See full review
