This is a straight transfer (the way I do it) off the LP.
The only processing that has been done is click & crackle removal, most of which has been removed,
a little however remains but it is not intrusive.
Other than that it is untreated.

There are problems with this LP:

01. "How Soon Is Now" has John Peel talking at the end, I have left this in, but removed it for the remaster.
02. "Half A Person" has "issues" for the first 5 seconds this is partly the recording/transfer & the failings of Vinyl.
I have attempted to solve this in the remaster to the best of my alility, this is how it is i'm afraid with this version.
03. "Still Ill" cuts off abruptly @ 2:20, this is how it is on the LP,
no idea why other than to speculate they cut it to fit all the tracks on the LP?
If anyone knows why please tell!

There are some (rather rubbish) photos of the LP, sorry for there quality (or lack of it),
if anyone has better ones please post/share.

**Please don't profit (sell) this, freely has it been given to you, so please do likewise.**
**By all means share/swap but don't sell.**

Finally enjoy, it is a great listen [IMO].
