    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

    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.
