I will be playing the test pressing again in full to analyse track by track if any other audible differences are present and will report back in due course. For now, the full details of the test pressing are these: vinyl weight: 139g (compared to my ‘first pressing’ A5/B5 which weighs 149g) matrix: machine stamped 2401002 A▽3 1 1 1 and 2401002 B▽3 1 1 1 (compared to hand etched A5/B5 of the commercial release). Initial playback reveals the audio errors as described above but also the test pressing is a much louder cut than the commercial release. Full track by track analysis to follow
