Finally picked up a UK 1st POLS 1036 in EX+ condition, sounds great with loads of dynamics, punchy clear sound with great production and very quiet pressing too, even for a 35 year old album.
I hear you mate. I’ve never listened to this album in any other format than the POLS 1036 original. Had many many spins since 1981. ;)
I have recently found that there is also the original CD release from 1981(?) which had all the singles as their full 12" versions:Turn It On (5:36)Love Games (7:25)Starchild (6:52)
Correct. I'd recommend you buy this one: Level 42 - Level 42. I have it myself, I've always liked the longer versions better as I believe that's how they were originally intended.
