    so my copy of bingo hand job/r.e.m. is shit. bowled discs, skips, and debris that a cleaning didn't fully resolve. :/ i expected the recording quality to not be so good, but did not expect the poor quality.

    boo-urns.

    Bummer, man.

    I’m looking on here and Twitter, before conceding to Discogs.

    Mine sounded OK. The crowd cheers are kind of cringe worthy but overall it's a good set.

    I’m finally spinning my copy now. Overall pressing is good, no issues. But, yeah the crowd can be a bit annoying. Also should note, the sound quality itself is not flawless cause it’s an audience recording (I actually didn’t even think about this until I put it on). It’s a nice collector’s album, but probably not a must have for everyone.

    Any luck yet? I'll make sure I tag if you if I see it pop up somewhere.

    I found it at hhv! Very happy about it. I see the mixed reviews which surprise me because Concord usually does a great job but I’m a completist with them.

    I think the pressing part is fine it's more of he source material that's not great. I still very much enjoyed listening to mine.

    I don't know if you caught it on their Facebook page but some people are getting copies with 2 of the same disc so double check yours. It looks like their working on a plan to get it replaced.
