Correct, only the original has printed inner. Careful where you buy, (some) sellers usually go for barcodes only without knowing. MINT offers therefore usually considered to be suspicious.

You own it? Or just your assumption? For everyone wondering about the stain on pics: It's part of the artwork, no fault.

I just saw the comments here and stumbled over a crazy typo in the matrix for this release (unnoticed for years), which I corrected. So, It's not WWME, but WMME, the abbreviation of Warner Music Manufacturing Europe. Added another picture of it from my copy. See full review

Yes, you are right - sorry. Will delete that comment. Thank you!

All hail to Mark Pinske who engineered this perfectly. Very tight sound comparable to 1982 rec. band on CD2 of Frank Zappa - You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore Vol. 5. Captures this line-up as deserved, way much better than the "The Torture Never Stops" DVD or similar.

All I can say is that this release has obviously been repressed after original limitation (quantity unknown) - which sold out soon everywhere due to its success - but now still is available. Maybe that's the reason for below described faultiness. My... See full review

The Peak Levels of this are much higher than my PDO Germany release Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms. This seems re-pitched.

This is an '86 Japanese pressing. And it's good. Word.

Certainly disagree on the Tom Waits releases, I don't know all of them, but Tom Waits - The Heart Of Saturday Night is fantastic!

Thanks for those very helpful details. These make it a different release indeed and I was wrong.

To sum this up so far: The european release (also mine) has Cat# 19439779571 on sticker, while the US release has 19439779571-s1.
As far as I can see, the european release has also a barcode sticker 194397795714 over the printed barcode on rear cover... See full review

I don't get your point why to prefer the US release. All US and EU equivalents are technically identical so far, pressed by MPO, mastered at Sterling. Only prints and packaging are done domestic (stickered barcodes variants placed over package print... See full review

Package and (this) pressing is great.
Seen that shadow from the gallow in the pic follwing JFK? So gorgeous :)

Historic (?) - at least, not essential for me. Just compiled tape material from the vault with some interesting early variations of tracks published years later (e.g. Wonderful Wino). Official live releases from this era (e.g. Fillmore East, JABFLA)... See full review

Very strong disagree. The 2011 remasters are completely messed up and compressed - very low dynamic range of ca. 7.
If I could add pics here for an audio analysis compared to the original I'd even make you see and believe.

Abs. true, no easy way to find a clean (esp. cheap) TML copy today - glad to have it. Besides the UK-Press I have this Pink Floyd - The Wall. It was my first soon after it came out, didn't know about the misprint then, later got the UK. Both stunning. Also... See full review

Hello Geoff, thanks for your words. It'll be great if you could add a copy of your inner sleeve. I can't remember exactly if I replaced mine once, I think you're right.

Same with my copy, changed BAOI on release as a suggestion.

The 2016 remaster is really well done - in every aspect a flawless copy / UK-Reproduction (except the thin front-sticker). Soundwise, I still prefer my 2 originals, a UK- and another EU TML-Master for clarity, but the 2016 is close.

Very much in doubt that any of the releases listed here have been issued in 1987, as the recording date is of Oct. 1987. Add production and manufacturing time and you'll end up in 1988 - just as indicated on all vinyl releases and some of the CD-Releases.

Agree, release policy for 2019 is somewhat awkward on this, with the original vinyl mix Frank Zappa - Hot Rats separated again taken from Bernie Grundman's 2008 Frank Zappa - Hot Rats Classic Records and Chris Bellman's 2016 pressing Frank Zappa - Hot Rats plus an extra new 10" Black...

Total agree, this record is bass heavy and has some distortion by intent - either digital or on vinyl. Don't blame it on pressing plants.
