I've been collecting records for 45 years and now reviewing my collection.
When grading my for-sale records I try to be as accurate as possible and most of the time will be on the conservative side.
MINT means sealed. NM means opened, maybe played once, but as new. VG+ is very high quality.

As this is the standard international vinyl, they probably made a mistake on the Japanese insert. The tracklist was copied from the CD release where A6 and B1 are swapped.

Yep, mine too. The label is just a tad too big, covering the end of the runout groove.

Yes true, and also now you have them as a (nearly) complete concert. For that I also prefer the CD over the 2LP, as it has no gaps.

Six of these live tracks: 'Mothers Talk', Broken / Head Over Heels', 'Memories Fade', 'The Working Hour', 'Everybody Wants To Rule The World' and 'Shout' were previously released on the 30th Anniversary Edition box set 'Songs From The Big Chair' (CD-4).

As I own both European and US vinyl versions I can confirm that the quality of the European pressing is way better than the US pressing.

Although the 'Original Versions' CD is a very nice addition to this box set, it is unfortunately not complete. These are the missing tracks with their original performers.

Yes, very bad pressing. Sibilance in several places and even some distortion on 'Anyone'.
Static to the extreme, when I was turning the record over, the slipmat was sticked to the record.
Returned my copy. Sadly it can't be seen from the outside that... See full review

On CD2 all tracks are instrumental, except for the 4 Peel tracks which were previous available elsewhere.
Track CD2-17 (Blue Monday -Instrumental outtake) is actually just 'The Beach'.
All in all a bit disappointing.

Yep, my copy has exactly the same skip as you decribe, but my 12" vinyl hasn't.

I had exactly the same problem. The record is not warped, but has a bump in the surface causing skips of the needle.
I've returned my copy.

Update: replacement copy doesn't have the previous problem but is slightly warped, plays flawlessly though.

Sibilance throughout the whole record but most noticeable on 'Calico Skies'.
The 2020 vinyl reissue will be pressed on two records, probably to avoid these kind of sound problems.
