We can't dance,
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.
