Botched pressing is what i heard.

Tried to cram in too many tracks per side.
Memory flashback.......stationed near Lincoln and having The Jam blasting out from the jukebox in the NAAFI. Very very happy days
I’m tempted but not gonna click just yet but I really hate, haters on anything, ‘botched pressing’ have you purchased the album and found ‘botched’ pressing?
What if someone come across this deal and thought, I’ve got £15 spare I might just add this to my collection, no harm done, so do one with your negativity, people like stuff so get over it
Tempted but think i'll just put Snap! on and be done with it.
Much difference between this and the CD boxset direction reaction creation (or however it is)?
Regarding this Vinyl release....

What an immature response. I'm not a "hater" - I'm telling you that this has been widely reported to be poor quality (unlike the original Nice Time tri-colour pressing) - AND it's not a box set as listed it's a gatefold designed for 2 discs with 3 discs in it, using hard card liners instead of poly liners - result : damaged vinyl.

If you want to embrace poor quality recordings and inferior products go right ahead but I'm not going to allow your negativity to discourage me from giving helpful feedback to real music fans!

I think the word “ Botched” is bit harsher then , I would say. Yes it is true to say you have a point with your second post , but is still a good price for what you get but may be if you want this issue go for the CD released album has it will be a lesser flat sound then this vinyl or just buy Snap on vinyl.
