It's there but I think you will get the same divisive opinions on the pressing quality of this record. Maybe a clean will help but I think many of the defects like non fill and other marks cannot be erased. Saying that I really like the record and am ... See full review

Yes there is surface noise. It's vinyl. Nothing that got in the way with the music. Still sounds amazing.

Never a dull moment here. THe only thing that is missing is the 5th track that ends the whole thing. It should have been included on the vinyl pressing. Maybe a "grower" for some folks and others might hate it but just don't get tired with it .

How does that work? In My 30+ years of collecting vinyl I have never seen a record develop that much surface noise.

I think it's going to sound as good as it's going to get. Every version of this record or songs appearing on comps have been muffled. I think it's that way in the recording. Maybe the bass is slightly up but that's what we like about Jamaican music right?

Very welcome pressing. I suppose there is a tiny bit of surface noise here and there b ut I can live with that because most vinyl comes with a little bit here and there. Not as bad as others have described here. Classic record all the way.

One of the worst sounding boots in my collection. Sound quality is like someone recorded it strait from their tv with a portable tape recorder. These recordings can be found through other official sources with better sound.

Listening now. The source/tape is not a sonic marvel but these are demos. What they lack in dynamic range they make up in performance. The pressing is remarkable and quiet. Funny liner notes by Byron Coley too.

The performance is excellent but it has that hollow live sound that is still very present in the recording. Pressing is decent not perfect. Buy with confidence.

I was hoping for better bass too. I think you could have graded it a bit higher. Never had any issues with SV pressings before. All the ones I have had been well done .

Not a noisy pressing until 3rd LP. Dished and a few marks that provide subtle ticks. Requested a replacement. Other than that this pressing sounds fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone who can't afford an original UK parlaphone 90's pressing.

Buy with confidence. I'm happy with this version. I know A lot of people who opted for double disc 45rpm pressing and are happy with that too.

I wanted to echo the positive impressions of this record and pressing. Not only is this top notch English psychedelia but the mono mix squashes the stereo. The stereo suffers from hard panning of the instruments to one speaker and that awful phasing ... See full review

Not a super essential 60's British psych rock lp. It has it's moments and never feels that dull. That being said there are no real high points. At times the vocals remind me of the American group The Turtles which is always a good thing and which ... See full review

Hello. Just got this record from my parents house. They have had it since the 80's. Great condition but the sibilance is THERE! Still a great listen. One of my favorite commercial records from back then.

I'm sure many of his records were dated the moment they were released however I think they sound very fresh and hold up well.

King Babylon Dub also has terrible distortion that is evident on the digital and analog pressing. Thought I had a damaged speaker but the defect is present in the recording or master tape or vinyl copy. Splendid album.

Wonderful record. Should appeal to fans of 80's psychedelia and paisley underground sounds. Not sure where the record was pressed but the first record in my set very wobbly. My cartridge and needle track it fine but others might not.

Expensive reissue but worth it. Sounds great and the pressing is flat. Informative liner notes. I don't see myself being able to afford an original anytime soon so this is a most welcome addition to the collection.
