Issues with the pressing
Reviewed in the United States on July 9, 2018
The album, of course, is a classic. Once should never travel far without a little Big Star. However, this pressing leaves a lot to be desired. I had to return my first copy, as side B skipped so much it was impossible to listen to. (I mean, how many skips is tolerable when it comes to "September Gurls"? The answer is zero.) The second copy skipped as well, but as I've listened to it a few times it seems to have gotten a little better. Still, it's a shame that such an essential album has performance issues.
