5 Star Music, 1 Star vinyl pressing
on 13 November 2017
Although I don't consider this as strong as 'Wild Wood' it is still a consistently good album. When it was released I didn't buy the vinyl and that has proved to be a big mistake. The re-issue from just over a year ago was just £18, this disappeared within a month to then appear again priced at £32! How this could be justified I don't know but at least the price has come down but the quality of the vinyl is very inconsistent. My first copy was truly dreadful, scratches and dirt all over it, my second was much better but one side was pressed so badly off centre that the music just sounded weird. Thankfully I bought from Amazon and I received a refund for both, I doubt I will bother again until either UMC learn to use decent pressing plants or a quality label like 'Speakers Corner' or Musical Fidelity make it.
