Received my copy a couple of days back. What a horrendous pressing: four pressing faults! Pieces of debris within the vinyl, and an ugly 7 mm wide "burst bubble" causing significant noise.

I can confirm that this pressing / remastering is a complete stunner. Pitch black silent background, velvety sound. Truly amazing. Have to say that until now all Kevin Gray masters I have bought (5) have been astounding.

There are two versions, Pallas (Germany) and GZ Media (Check) pressings, stickers accordingly.

I can add to the string of testimonials; the Speakers Corner reissue is an excellent pressing. Pitch back background, dynamic and clear sound. Really brings out the best of this superb record.

Like the other two Jazz Dispensary Top Shelf releases (US) I have, both the mastering and the pressing are truly excellent. Crystal-clear, powerful and dynamic sound, rising from a pitch-black background - the absence of any surface noise is... See full review

The Jazz Dispensary US LP release is incredibly well done. Superb mastering and pressing; crystal clear, immense sense of space, pitch black background. In the same league as Mobile Fidelity releases or best MPS pressings.

Well they haven't been made well - this is a cheapo package, an opportunistic rip-off of the temporary situation when copyrights to his estate expired after 50 years in 2010. There were similar CD boxes from other legends published, as well. Sound... See full review

Check your music history please. Pub rock was big 1975, but punk was nowhere to be seen in the UK yet, prog was still going strong. Ramones' debut changed the scene early 1976, but that's another story - and the actual "juggernaut" only started... See full review
