    I just received this in the mail yesterday.  I totally forgot I ordered it.  Mine is black vinyl.  I didn’t know colored versions were available.

    Just played mine. Sounds really good except LP4, might need to clean it, had some distortion.

    I got through the first two and sounded fantastic.  I'll check 4 today.  May have to preemptively run it through the Okki Nokki.

    A friend of mine picked up a fine early pressing of this one up for me.  Too cool!

    I've been super lucky with getting some great new stuff lately but this one comes under the heading "Where have you been all my life."  I've been a Link Wray fan for a good 46 or 47 years so how on earth did I miss this one?  Musicians here include the likes of Jerry Garcia, Commander Cody, David Bromberg among others. I'm totally blown away.  I love this record!

    The verdict is that it's actually better to me now than it was when it was new! A super duper fun listen, and they are so cheap on discogs, I don't see why anyone wouldn't get this album! ;)

    There was a reissue not too long ago I think.  Is that it,  or an original?

    Yes there was, but this is an original (the Canadian pressing). I can't work out why anyone would buy the reissue when there are so many originals available for way cheaper, even after taking shipping into account. I think the Amazon.ca reissue was nearly $40CAD. I got this for $12 + domestic shipping.

    Unless there is a special edition with ephemera from your favorite band(s) that you want to collect, there really is no reason to buy reissues of 80's vinyl. There were so damn many of them pressed that OG's are readily available on the cheap.

    I have found that the fidelity of 80's albums to be subpar overall.  That's not always true, but it is often true.  There are some that are very good though.  I think I read somewhere that they started using recycled vinyl or something.

    Ouch!  I'm thinking, "Man, $1500 would buy a lot of records to add to my collection!"  For rich or spendthrift types.

    Just ordered this. I  never saw this on vinyl at the time and you can't pick it up for less than £200 these days (if you can find it). Its a nice little additional to my R.E.M vinyl collection for under £30. Not really a must have as I have the singles that were new to this collection but just always wanted it.

    Those of you who follow the "Weakest Link" thread will find this amusing- yesterday I found and purchased a near-mint (sleeve and record) condition vinyl copy of this one in a thrift store for $1.29:

    With your knowledge of music, I think you'd have fun getting in of the "Weakest Link" threads.  Somehow I thought you already were.  It's fun!
