    Thumbs down Pressing's way too quiet

    I'd save your money...the pressing is quiet as a mouse....shame really as the tracks are not bad at all but personally i don't know what they were thinking putting out such a shit pressing
    Country be dyin like poor people do
    Hospitals be closing...doors to me and you (Lopazz - Blood)

    Yes, it certainly is.

    I don't think it's such a bad comp (trackwise). Although the sound quality is low, I've heard worse.

    Sorry, but I'd rather have these bootleg comps anyday over an officially licensed funk comp (yawn).

    Good point Ben. I'd like to see the answer to that statement too!
    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

    the 12 is for real though, a promo 4track thing from 1991, maybe thats what biz is on about as well (still reckon his mardi gras 12 is nonsense though...), it plays on 45 as well so..you...can.....cut ......it ..........up.............really................... ....slooowwwly....
