I'm certainly not questioning your gear/knowledgement, just saying my copy has no pressing faults: maybe not the complete round is for the "rubbish bin " as said above. That's all. Peace.

No regrets at all with my copy here (no crackles, pops, distortion).Remastered from the original tapes: sounds clean & decent from start to finish ( & yes, it's green-omg-no!).Maybe I'm lucky enough & probably my recently replaced styli helps a little. ... See full review

Interesting purpose here: melancholy/contemplations/intellectual subtle poetry with K Leimer vs intensity/visceral emotion of Holland Andrews. An antidote to these disconcerting times. Checked on a rainy/stormy winter day...

This reissue does not exist, unfortunately it was just a failed project, according to the friendly EM staff no copy was pressed. Forget the wrong info (preorders/sellers) out there (& btw delete, please)

The pity isn't just the lack of original copies per se. Digitmovies included this in a Ltd 3xcd (2014) but now these reissues (2008/2014) are UFOs too (for the greatest joy of the resellers).A lot of people would be happy to see some movement here:) ... See full review
