Scores from last months, no reissues. Cities is the Metal Masters MLP with superior sound compared to the LP.

got the same one. I bought it long time ago without really caring wchich of the "old" versions I get. turns out that only the slimline pressing is earlier, but its in this crappy case so it doesn't count :) I like those megaforce CDs, they look so vintage.

Yup. I like this one. Ideally I would go for the FEMS pressing but that is expensive as hell. So I have this Megaforce one for Melissa and a perfect NM FEMS one (with OBI) for Oath.

And it sounds great too. No remastered crap with this one.

you have to really like japaneese CDs because other than that I don't understand what is so appealing about the FEMS pressing. I much prefer the version I have.

And as for "Don't Break ..." I actually do favor a japaneese press, but the one made for US Combat :)

Just a soft spot for FEMS pressings. Call it personal preference. I agree there is nothing special about most of them (though I prefer the FEMS pressing of Satan's Court In The Act over all others). I just like them for some reason :D

"Don't Break..." FEMS pressing sounds and looks good - and this all that matters to me. It being a FEMS one is just a bonus :)

Is the B-side of that Blackout record really called '(She's Got A) Mustache!' ?
:shock:
Hope the song's as good as the title.
:lol:

It's uneventful hard rock, but with rather funny lyrics.

Yes, the Blackout single is quite boring soft typical US Glam stuff in the L.A. style. Forgettable ...

Blind shot, I didn't know it and it was cheap so why not trying my luck?
I didn't know and have never seen the Rain single above either and it was a direct hit. :wink:
The obscure private vinyl hunting business is a cruel one ...

Damn, I'm envious, would love to have that Pettypew!
What is the one below the Breeze 7", and the one right to Ricochet?
