One Comment

  1. This is one of the last few records pressed by EMI Records in house in 2000 using their famous EMI 1400 presses (matrix stamps ended with -1-1-) before the pressing plant was sold in the same year.

    It is hard to distinguish whether you have an original first press or a repress. If you refer to Discogs comments, someone indicated that if your copy was sealed then it’s a repress as the original was not sealed.

    For the credits on the back of the sleeve: The original have 6 lines of text that ends with “7243 5 27783 1 7. UK 527 7831” where the repress condensed it into 5 lines with no mention of UK.

    So lucky me I have the original 1st pressing. It’s a excellent sounding release but not amazing.
