hi Jos..

just listened to the entire CD
wide awake, stone cold sober, good studio-monitor quality headphones..

wasn't able to plug into my best CD player,
thats in the bedroom, its gone 4.30 am, and the wifes asleep..

so my PC cdrom and software media player had to do

..and I could'nt hear any skips or jumps.....

The overall sound is definitely nothing like 'audiophile' quality..
its a bit crunchy and distorted.. but not too distracting..

certainly does'nt sound anything like a transfer from well recorded first generation master tape..

but very good bootleg sound quality best describes it..

Don't know right now if it will sound better or worse on my
proper HiFi system..

Anyway, if you want to confirm if your Disc is the same release as mine,

[and I'm quite certain mine is a factory manufactured disc rather than CD-R copy]

this is the ID coding around the inner ring on the playing surface
as best as I can make out without a magnifying glass.....

Btw I prefer the darker 'folky' tracks

the singalong pop stuff at best reminds me of The Idle Race
and at worst vears a bit too near to Brian and Michael
"Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs"..
