I take it that the Red Fox Records CD reissue (RF 626, "Made under license by GCR A/S") is also a bootleg? This disc certainly wasn't mastered from a vinyl source, so whoever pressed it must have had a friend who worked at a pressing plant that kept all their tapes, or something like that.

And I'll take a guess and say that the inside source was most likely inside something as far down the chain as a pressing plant, because this sounds compressed and is lacking a proper low-end for a digital medium in much the same way a vinyl master would sound if you just stuck it on a CD. Or maybe this is a legitimate reissue, and someone over at Red Fox Records had no clue, when it came to proper CD remastering.

The label doesn't exist anymore, last time I checked.

Red Fox are a known pirate label. They have many releases that aren't authorized. Unfortunately. Interesting that this one has the proper sound, as the few I've heard are substandard, but I've not heard their reissue of Charlies. Myself, I only own the bootleg LP (on Hell), which also sounds good.
