    The LP pressing is dead quiet. The music explodes from the vinyl and the CD, full of the snarl and electricity this great band is known for. The packaging is gorgeous, and the DVD not only has the remarkable documentary but it also has a full live set from one of the band’s home bases in 1984, the Roxy in LA. This is an exemplary set and belongs not only in everyone’s collection, but it belongs on your turntable or in your digital player, filling the space with the music and the greatness. Get it now!
