If they allegedly only pressed copies of a specific reissue and you can easily find it in abundance on amazon, something is either very very wrong or they are doing false advertisement.

Barely any surface noise. Record sounds low, but I rather turn up the volume than a over compressed record that will make the needle skip.
The Four Men With Beards versions sound a little distant but besides that are not as bad as a lot if their other stuff. SuttcliffeRecords January 12, Report.

What is the point of an LP pressed from a CD anyway? I'd prefer the CD in that case and I love my vinyl players. Pio , Nov 23, That "The Time Has Come" Anne Briggs sounds okay though, wish i had an OG copy to compare it to though that's why i bought the self titled one thinking i could give it a whirl but alas no dice!
