If I could only own one jazz record this would be it. It's a masterpiece and why in the world no one will reissue it is beyond me.

This was exactly my reaction to this record. The first and last tracks are awesome. The rest is OK except for Hey Jude which I can't stand to begin with.

I got the 2017 AS repress / remaster of this. Beautiful copy but it sounds like the whole thing was run through a compressor and flat as hell. Very disappointing. The mp3s I got of the internet sound better. Is it just me or what?

I have seen it both ways. Mine doesn't have"The Cars Candy O" sticker on the cover it has it n the shrink. I've seen it with a sticker and I've seen it printed. There are several variations of the cover.

I bought 2 copies from Relapse as a pre-order as well. The info about pressings colors was from their website at the time.

A classic album of the era but be aware half the of tracks are from his previous Demon EP series.

Back in 1988 Dan Quayle was running for Vice President and the national news immediately reported that Quayle had avoided the Viet Nam War by having his wealthy father pull some strings and get him into the Indiana National Guard. Of course Bob & Tom ... See full review

This is the pulled album cover. The story goes that the photo was purchased at a garage sale. Yes, the photogenic couple pictured here were selling off family pictures to anyone who happened by. Little did they know what was going to be done with it. ... See full review

During the 1980’s in America, this record above any another drew the ire of religious fundamentalist twits who were sure backwards messages in rock-n-roll records were going to make us all go to hell. This record has backwards masking on it in a couple ... See full review

Top roots-rockers-dub label. PS and Blood & Fire are probably the best two around. Some things to keep in mind when buying. CDs generally contain bonus tracks. Double LPs are generally arranged to DJ with. Unfortunately if you like vinyl for audio ... See full review

Submit is a great record but maybe too metal for the younger industrial crowd. If you fall into that category just get Industrial and Desensitized. Everything past that is doesn't work for me, though they get an A for the attempt to evolve the band. It ... See full review

Another re-issue label with some wonderful stuff. I would recommend avoiding the LPs as everyone I have ever purchased is trashed. CDs contain extra couple of tracks and 10"s are always perfect.

CD contains all the tracks from the rare singles. To me this recording is definitive IDM. There’s nothing but lovely glitchy rhythms with no filler material. Absolutely essential.

I totally used to fetish this label as releases were coming out between 1999-2002. It is still one of my all time favorite electronica labels however the last two releases 13 & 14 were sorely disappointing to me. They are all mellow with the exception of ... See full review

For most people who are not record collectors with trust funds, just get 0161 and Skampler. They are fairly available and you’ve really got the highlights. For the most part, everything past #10 is pretentious crap and the older stuff is good but not ... See full review
