Just one of my favorite records since I was a teenager, in fact I was looking for a replacement original pressing in good shape and I held off on buying a copy of the remaster. Having had good luck with Parlophone releases in the last few years, I... See full review

Might have got lucky on mine because my orange discs are flat. I was a little worried when I got it because of the booklet inside made the whole package, when it was sealed, seemed kind of lopsided. Once the discs were out of the sleeve everything was... See full review
Sonny Rollins - Way Out West

Cool alternative William Claxton cover. Thick perfectly flat vinyl, dead quiet. Sounds better/ quieter than my 1987 US press. Gatefold with another really good Sonny photo inside, copy of the original liner notes as well, and comes with lined white... See full review
The Clash - Hits Back

Another MOV winner... I literally own probably everything The Clash ever did, and generally avoid compilations... But this is pretty well programmed, and makes for a nice one unit, 3 LP best of. Never particularly cared for "give em enough rope" but... See full review

Sounds pretty darn good, flat, quiet, I don't know why these MOV pressings don't get more love...maybe they don't have the marketing power of some of the more "audiophile" companies... Have the clash box set, bringing it all back home, highway 61... See full review

Recommend the CD over the LP to get the full 33 minute complete version of "In Trane's Name" which will peel the paint right off your walls!

Astonishing version of "Ol茅"... This one needs a double vinyl reissue! I remember when the original Theresa LP used to sit in the cutout bins unloved and unwanted... Why didn't I buy one then LOL? This CD of course includes "Rise n Shine" which was... See full review

I've got this with no obi... Frankly I hate the obi... However you seem to get these LPs for a little less $ if it's missing the obi. Dead quiet wax, slightly "softer" mastering than any of the ojc issues. Seems to be how the Japanese liked to master... See full review

This pressing is insane. For my money it's their best record (Black Sun....omfg) and this double 45 will blow your face out... Put this up there with "metal box" in terms of taking your equipment as far as it'll go... This is one of a handful of... See full review

I have the red one... Apparently ANY glow in the dark vinyl is always going to have a fair amount of grainy surface noise, inherent to the vinyl formulation.. so consider this a pretty cool novelty, and if you're looking for ultimate Sonic quality... See full review

Orange vinyl sounds fine. Sort of translucent not opaque Orange. Great record too! I pre-ordered the new Coltrane/Dolphy on 馃А vinyl just now. So far the only issue I've ever had with any colored vinyl was the grainy background noise on Warren Zevon... See full review

It's quite a decent pressing on red vinyl. Sleeve is ok quality. Live recording from 71, pretty big ensemble as well. Not my favorite Don Cherry (or Penderecki, for that matter), but I'm glad to have it on LP.

I have a needle drop of this exact pressing, a friend from Italy sent me the files. This sounds pretty good. I see there's a few represses out there I'm probably going to end up grabbing this for the collection.

Back cover photograph is also different. I don't know why people don't mention that fact either... So there are five different front covers from 1978: the UK original off-center, UK centered, US original, this one, and the Finland off center cover... See full review

I have this pressing and I think it sounds pretty good. Required a cleaning right out of the sleeve, but then again I don't think this was supposedly a limited audiophile pressing anyway. Not hearing any inner groove distortion even though side one... See full review

Get this one on CD if you're going to get a physical copy... That way you can hear the long title track in one shot instead of having to get up and flip over the record! Thinking of starting a Leon Thomas Appreciation Society as well...

Maybe I got lucky here but no non-fill issues. Had the CD since it came out so I can't comment on any other vinyl pressings, however this sounds pretty damn good. Very nice packaging as well, and as far as I'm concerned, the extra tracks are well... See full review

Not going to get involved in the argument below... The white vinyl sounds great, packaging is stellar, and for my money the "backwards live wip-fixed softer backwards" track alone is worth the price of admission. Just an utterly jaw-dropping,... See full review

Was a huge Birthday Party fan growing up, and after Junkyard and the Mutiny EP this was my favorite and most played... Excellent pressing quality, 4AD imports all seemed to be superior pressings for the time... consider the Lydia Lunch locked groove... See full review

Comes with white paper inner sleeve. Very strange record, and this pressing has a different back cover than the original. Okay pressing, the usual little white flakes stuck with static to the vinyl due to the white paper inner. The little booklet is... See full review

Okay pressing from the 60s. I doubt Pharaoh was satisfied with this recording... sounds like a mediocre bop band trying to do everything in their power not to go "out" while the ostensible leader is trying to find an opening to blast off... Unless... See full review

Nicely done, and an even handed look at Lawrence of Felt, Denim, Go-Kart Mozart, and now Mozart Estate. Conspicuously absent are any Felt songs, or Denim songs for that matter. Stubborn, clueless and a musical genius... While many lesser lights are... See full review

Did a back-to-back with an original and this one, would have been purchased in 81 or so... It's a weak boxy noisy pressing compared to the earlier '70s pressings. In general seems like poor quality vinyl and maybe worn plates? It's obviously the same... See full review
