The reviews haven't been good, so keen to hear your thoughts.
The vinyl looks like it was pressed by a waffle maker not flat, not warped but visibly uneven. Sounds ok but it's a bit hard to know what is poor source. A good collection of tracks for $35, if I had spent $150 I would have been pissed. Certainly not essential
Control did come out as part of a Jackie Leven 4 CD box set in 2001 on Cooking Vinyl called Great Songs From Eternal Bars, not a patch on his later solo stuff - he sounds very young; sometimes folky, sometimes poppy, but it is certainly worth getting

Is this any different apart from the issue year?
I figure they would have used the same metal parts.
After a bit of digging around, I would say you are correct. Both boxes are Grundman mastered, pressed at GZ.
EDIT: One of the comments on the Amazon page says the cheaper box is pressed at Pallas but discogs says GZ so who knows.
I think I might take a chance with the cheaper one.
It is 100% certain that the 2020 pressing is done a GZ media, whereas at least there is a slim chance the 2013 pressing was done at Pallas.
I've had a lot of bad experiences with GZ pressings. And I mean a lot.
I'm going with the cheaper one, too. 150 for a box of Grundman mastered Dire Straits LPs sounds good to me.
Grabbed one at $38 this morning, that's pushed it back up to $66 sorry.
Will report back on the pressing but I listen to this set on Bandcamp and the music is perfection.
I went for the Priority International shipping at $17.
Swifty, let me know two things:
How long your delivery took.
Which pressing you got (Pallas or GZ).
I'll report back here on both as well.
Hey Aussie, my box just shipped! Ordered at 10am, shipped via Aus Post Global at 3pm.
