My copy plays perfect. Nothing weird about the pressing at all. There's a lot of hard panning on this album. I could see it sounding weird if you were listening to it on some crappy mono turntable or through one shitty bluetooth speaker or something.

This has a version of Black And Huge on it that is not on anything else (except supposedly the 1st pressing CD in The Netherlands). It's a weird bonus track on the cassette that was later re-recorded for Scumdogs. Great version that I really prefer over ... See full review

How does this sound? It's kind of too long to be smashed onto one LP but once in a while it works.

This strange 1981 pressing with one side playing backwards is actually my favorite version. It sounds like a silly, novelty idea but it really works here. Wonderfully creepy album.

Maybe my favorite Hardy / Bobuck album right now. These are definitely not "covers" since none of the music is at all based on the originals. I find all of these tracks better than the original songs.

Sounds like garbage and has WAY too much audio mashed onto each side (25 minutes / 30 minutes) and you can hear it. The Mobile Fidelity pressing is definitely the way to go and worth the money.

This vinyl reissue cuts 3 tracks (over 13 minutes!) off of the album. Real bummer.

You talked to one guy that cuts records too long. I run a record label and work with many mastering people and many pressing places. Maybe everyone in the business is lying so bands put less music on each side or maybe your one guy is covering his own ... See full review

You don't have to spend $300 on this. Revolver / Midheaven (Secret Records distributor) still has copies and any record shop or person should still be able to order it. I'm not positive about vinyl color but they definitely have vinyl copies as of Feb ... See full review

Surface noise? Yeah, but this album always had surface noise because it's a very quiet ambient, drone album with 25 minutes mashed onto each side. I've had several copies over 25 years and there's always been light pops and surface noise. If the music ... See full review

Maybe my favorite album by Rachel Brooke and Brooks Robbins (individually and together). It rivals the Rachel / Lonesome Wyatt albums. Currently unavailable but keep praying.

Nobody makes a double LP so they can increase the price. A double LP is literally twice as much to make as a single LP and any time you can avoid that a label will. People make double LPs because technically you are never supposed to put over 20 minutes ... See full review

One rating of one star by someone who obviously doesn't own it because it hasn't even been released yet. Pretty reliable user rating.

Many labels have tried to reissue it and it's looking very unlikely that it will ever happen. I ended up dropping $100 on a mint copy with insert. Also the cdr is a completely new mix that the original band members and label hate. Unless the tape is made ... See full review

Sounds great! Most reissues I've bought sound mediocre at best. Very pleasantly surprised with this one.

This should not have been pressed at 45rpm. Once they added the bonus tracks it became as long as a full length LP and should have been cut at 33. That's my two cents.
