Heard repress is on the way from the guys at Sounds of the Universe. They got less copies than what they initially ordered.

I have the same issue. Specially on side B, pretty much throughout and this was a sealed copy

Anyone else hear pressing faults on their copy? Specially on side C. Even though the record surface looks clean I can hear very loud scuffs

Not sure about any particular issues, but this record looks and feels like a bootleg. The fact that the label have released so many rare African records at the same time makes it all look extra dodgy as well.

My copy of this, which I recently picked up, looks great but sounds very very hissy and noisy on the high freqs. Is that the way this pressing sounds? Or is my copy damaged?

Thanks!

Didn't find the sound quality of the reissue to be particularly great, but no idea what the original sounds like. Anyone have a clue?

The label heard my copy and wrote this in return, FYI: Vocal sounds a little harsh in places but to us (3 artists from the label were here yesterday we had a listening party )
it's down to muddy production / mastering. / intent of the producer & ... See full review

I just realized the same upon first listen. Very saturated on the voice specially

I think my pressing is fine but it's hard to tell because as you said the source material is probably very lo-fi

Any ideas if this pressing is louder than the 1999 repress? Usually have to turn the gains real loud on the RP.

Does anyone else find the sound quality on the B side is sub par? Lots of clicks and pops all around too.

Actually it might be the same tracklist as the CD version, even though the cover and the label both list 5 tracks per side

Strangely my copy lists 5 tracks on each side, yet there are 7 on each. Is it a different version? It's still under JG006

Picked up at copy at Honest Jon's recently. Sound wasn't as bad as the comments on here made me expect, but curious to listen to an original press.

Do you guys have a little skip at the beginning of A1? Trying to figure out if it's my copy or if it's a pressing issue.

Is track 1 on side 1 a bit fudged? My copy is a bit jumpy on that one, everything else sounds alright.

Does anyone else find these reissues are really awful pressings? I've bought 2 copies and both have really loud pops and a few skips. Bit frustrating, but the record is so good that it makes up for it.
