I've never heard a decent pressing of this unfortunately, from the original through to the represses of recent years. I have several other LPs pressed by the same record label (R&S/Apollo) and they are all problematic in one way or another, which is such a shame as the music deserves so much more.

I bet that sounds great on vinyl. Only got a 12" single from it.
Recently I unearthed the William Burroughs/Disposable Heroes collaboration on vinyl though, and that's great.
Can't work out if I have a crackly copy, or if it's all the samples crackling, but it's a stupendous album though.
You can get it pretty cheap on Discogs.
I've never heard the Burrows/Heroes album, will have to see if I can get a copy.

Pink Floyd - Delicate Sound Of ThunderBeautifully recorded live album from 1988.
Sam Brown - April Moon
Lovely album by a great singer who only seems to turn up with Jools Holland these days.
Kate Bush - The Hounds Of Love
A masterpiece from a true legend who has produced more than her fair share of brilliant albums.
Joni Mitchell - Court and Spark
Bringing It All Back Home - Bob Dylan
Just spinning Hounds of Love on the RP6 & Elicit - been away with work & hols for last few weeks - I'm gobsmacked at how much control the Elicit has over the RS3s - the Brio was a cracking amp but list it's way a bit when I pushed the volume, however the Elicit is kicking ass - I guess this is what I should expect for an amp costing 3 x the Brio R ?

Phil's drumkit sounds superb on the RP1.
Having been a bit disillusioned of late regarding the quality and cost of decent 2nd hand vinyl, I've had a hiatus from vinyl in general. However recently I bought this LP for a decent price. Unfortunately the sellers idea of Exc/VGC does not correspond with mine, and it is a bit crackly in parts, though not to the extent that it's unlistenable. Ho-hum, that's vinyl I suppose.
Anyways, a pretty decent album.
