Great album w/subpar recording quality

"Bluesy metal crunchers from the UK, with love-it-or-hate-it vocals from Kenny Stewart, is the 2nd of 3 Dirty Tricks releases in the mid-70's. This Majestic Rock re-issue on compact disc has a few pros & cons:
Pros: Adds the 2 missing tracks not on the U.S. vinyl release, white still including my 2 favorites, "Too Much Wine" & "Wait Til Saturday", from the initial debut album.
Add's some live performances.
Cons: The 2 missing tracks, 2 & 4, have less treble attentuation than the other tracks.
The live tracks are of poor quality, both in performance and audio, but are still an interesting listen, warts and all.
Overall, a must-have for all new & old fans of 70's english rock and blues."
Caution: Vinyl Transfer NOT REMASTERD

"Ya gotta admire the ambition here. Nicely packaged, with original cover art and liner notes. Everything looks legit, down to the fine print, "issued under license from Universal Music." Well, they may have all the signatures and licenses, but they forgot to get the master tapes(!). The disc seemed to be sourced from a vinyl LP. Even for a vinyl transfer the final product here is mediocre at best. Anomalies exist throughout the CD, as if the source record was not cleaned. Also, either the stylus was in poor condition, or the anti-skate setting on the turntable was was not adjusted properly with the tone arm weight. "Fuzzy" would be my best one word description of this set.
Nothing against the actual music though. The Dirty Tricks albums are really great obscure 70s hard rock, and deserve a legit reissue with attention to quality mastering."
