Edit to say I also don't have Figure 8 or XO. I'm such a goddamn poseur.

From what I’ve read, the Bong Load pressings are the way to go for those two. Particularly Figure 8, I’ve read the Plain reissues sounds like ass and I think universal used the same plates for the recent represses.

The recent European pressing of Figure 8 is the way to go. The US version of the same repress used the garbage plates you mentioned though so def avoid it. I'm unsure if XO is the same way though.

Ugh yes. Was not familiar with the issues and bought a used copy a few years ago, thankfully for only $10. Definitely sounds like someone ordered the audio to be "extra crispy".

Why couldn't you guys know this, know I didn't own the records, and urge me to pre-order them 4 years ago!?

Now they are all $50 PLUS shipping. 

Unreal. Downvotes all around.

If it makes you feel any better they retailed at around $40. You can still get them on the bong load U.K. store.

So, I went ahead and tried, but they won't ship to our country (presumably something to do with fascism...I dunno).
