Yes, it's on mine too. This is why I say these things aren't pressed well; and that's at 45 rpm! There should be little or no noise at 45 rpm. I fear that if I return these for replacements, the replacements will sound the same. It's too bad because the mastering is actually very good. Compare that to an old Japanese pressing where the music fades into total black. Definitely a pressing defect, not on any of the other pressings. Thanks for providing a vivid example!
