  • Hey Alan,

    Watch out for Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy on Vinyl. I had to buy 3 different copies and all had a bum track for “The Ocean”. Loaded with static, and not clear at all. Just this track.
    I went with the CD after that, and the CD pressing is just fine. I even tried the basic version, and the deluxe versions, both had faults in the vinyl pressing. Hopefully it is fixed for future pressings.

    • Thank you for letting us know!
      Definitely hope it gets fixed for future pressings.

  • The FNM re-issues are very nice. If you can’t wait for the re-issue of We Care A Lot later this year, the. Look online for the Black Friday 2015 white vinyl re-issue of it. I have it and it’s very nice. But I will be getting the next one as well.
