Very good pressing quality on this purple version. I bought another (standard black) version of this release just so I wouldn't wear this LE one out from playing it constantly. One of those hidden gem instant classics that didn't get much press. If you like this band, you won't regret grabbing this on vinyl.

My copy of this album is a gorgeous pressing - no quality control issues here - but what I really came here to say is that this entire album is nothing short of amazing from start to finish. Not a lot of people know about this band, but they will. If you can't appreciate this one, be sure to confirm that you still have a set of working ears on your head.

Fortunately my release was sealed and mint.
What a record! Sounds like we are back in the early 70's again. Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes like this!

My copy was sealed when I bought it.
However, it had many scuffs on both sides. Side 2 had many pops and clicks during all 20 minutes. The worst of it all was the disgusting greasy fingerprints on the record!
Quality control at its worst. Daptone didn't even bother to answer to my mail.
I hope other music lovers had a better experience with this record. Btw, the music is amazing.

This is a phenomenal instrumental mix by the Daptone Super Group! Worth every penny! 5/5

There's not one track on this album that is dull. It's a journey into the depths of Daptone's soul capabilities. Even when stripped of the labels signature vocals, Daptone managed to deliver a funk-filled ride of Olympic proportions.
