Anyone have a good version of this LP? I have bought at least 4-5 copies over the past 30 years and even though they appear near mint, they are loaded with pops/clicks. Would be great to finally hear this amazing record in good quality.

Thanks Rissan for posting this. I see it is not your rip.
Unfortunately it has many skips.
So...I just ordered a near mint LP (about my 4th purchase) and hopefully this one will be decent. If so, I will convert it to digital and clean it up as best I can and then post here for everyone. It is truly an under the radar great 80s record. So many good songs on it.

Once again, my thanks for your effort to find and post a copy. I too have found a couple rips out there but they too had numerous skips. Not sure if that is digital deterioration over time or just skips that were there when the rip was initially done. One way or another, I'm going to create a decent copy. This is one of those records I wish Rubellan could work his magic on. This one and also Suzy Saxon & The Anglos - Guilt By Association. I have two vinyl copies, both mint. Hopefully between the two, I can get a good transfer to make a decent sounding CD.

Looks like the rip from 80zforever is the same as the previous one. Skips in the same places. I think it must be a rip going around.
Hopefully, the Near Mint LP I ordered will be fairly quiet and I can finally get a good version of this very essential 80s LP. If this is the case, I will share it here.
