This is a gorgeous UK Original on Radar Records with excellent sound and quiet vinyl. It comes in the super cool "folding flaps" cover with the custom sturdy inner sleeve and has all four of the postcards. I've been bringing in these British copies for years because it's I think it's an absolutely classic album and the American copies just don't do it full justice. You don't get the clarity, energy, or punch that you do on the better UK copies like this one. The vinyl plays mostly quietly, a few light ticks behind the music here and there but nothing repeating or major.
5 stars Allmusic: "The album demonstrates the depth of Costello's compositional talents and how he can move from the hook-laden pop of "Accidents Will Happen" to the paranoid "Goon Squad" with ease."
Vinyl: EX (super clean)
Cover: VG+ (solid with light creases)
Play notes: Excellent sound and mostly quiet vinyl
