Contains very limited edition Nick Cave 12" reading extracts from his forthcoming novel "And The Ass Saw The Angel"
My copy has an apparent pressing issue in the harmonica section of "Mercy" which causes it to skip. Exhibited the issue since the first play. No dust or scratches. Otherwise fine.
No such problem here - try another copy! I'm guessing that in 27 years you'd already tried playing it on more than one setup :)
