I have their Greatest Hits CD with me at work and I'm getting a few skips on some tracks. No visable scrathes though. I'll try a few different transports at home and see what happens.
Track 11 "Rush" exhibits some noise in a couple of places. It sounds almost like the tiny "pops" you get from a record player. Does anyone know if this track is intentionally mixed this way? I wonder at this because none of the other tracks have this sound. Unless the master was faulty?

B.A.D. is great, but don't pay more than four or five bucks a cd. They're easily found in the bargain bins.
I've been enjoying The Clash remasters lately too, and those are bargain priced even at retail. Also, Anchor Bay has recently released Straight to Hell, which stars Joe Strummer, to dvd and that can be had for pretty cheap, although I've yet to pick it up myself

After listening to the whole thing on my rig last night I think it must be intentional. It's only evident on 2 tracks (I think) 'Rush' and 'The Globe'. 'Rush' is much more noticeable.
Incidently my rig at home played all other tracks flawlessly. So I can now add this to my PSB disc as a CD that won't play properly on a computer CD player. Or at least the computer cd drive's at work and home.
