Many photos come from the Brucebase vinyl vault and/or Brucebase studio boot, which are precious sources of information that you should always use to integrate mine. Don't ask for information about buying or exchanging the items described in this pages, the information you can find here are for referential purpose only and you would get no response.
Historical item. Original have matrix ESB-75-002 and Ruthless Rhymes labels. B/w picture cover. Actually I'm not sure if the first press (leaving aside the advance press, see later) is this one or the one with the custom 'head' label. A first repress (later copies of first press?) had same matrix and same quality cover, but no labels.
Then repressed in the same months with matrix GO1002 and worse quality cover, notably darker.
A heavy vinyl picture disc exist, from the same era of the original (matrix 'E TICKET').
Other repressings with the same cover may exist.
A blank-cover pre-release is said to exist, and it should be a white stamped and hand numbered white sleeve with the same matrix and labels. It's unclear the role of the so-called 'advance pressing' stamped cover edition with custom green labels(ST/MX1), since this circulated massively and at low cost in late '80, and it seems a modern reprint.
See specific entries for all these copies for more details.
