Got 2 copies of this on Echo and both have "needle burn" crackle, ones all the way through, so dug out the other copy, that i've only played once or twice and looks absolutely mint and thats got it but it at the start, the Special Kind Of Love side plays fine so was just wondering was it a pressing fault and are they all like that

about 50 quid for a minter but as you can see, minters are hard to come by and they dont stay mint for long

Was legally repressed on a 12" a few years ago for a film soundtrack & was tucked away on the b side so missed by most.

Without a doubt the 12" is the best way to own this as the sound quality is far better than the 7" and also the album cut.

Sorry but can't remember the label details at the moment but if anyone wants to know shout up & I'll dig it out & get back to you.

Don't think it is a soundtrack but rather a promo 12" for a Cold Cut compilation. Two other tracks on it but can't remember what.

Regards

I have this on a 12" EP called 'Coldcut Lifestyles sampler'

It also includes Bobby Shad-I want you back and Morton Stevens - The long wait.

It came out on the 'Harmless' label in 2004.

I've had a 7" Echo copy for many years. It plays loud & great with no hiss either side.

Just sending an L P back to China (said it was mint, it is but did not mention the warp on main track causing a lot of hiss ,I would say it was styrene,felt very thin,.?

This is one of the reasons why i never wind a record back to cue it up, Styrene is notorious for Cue Burn but won't take the risk after one or two disasters, no matter how good the stylus or cartridge fitted, some vinyl just can'y take it, styrene is definitely a No No.  Rick.
