I don't have this but like that it designates "First Pressing", we need to make this info standard on all releases.

The pictures of the jacket on this page are inaccurate. This version has a barcode printed on the back of the sleeve and does NOT contain the insert. When sold as new, the record came in a white paper sleeve only. Please update. Thanks!

I uploaded the alternate version of Pay No Mind (Snoozer) on YouTube. I couldn't seem to find it anywhere else on the internet.
The "Motherload" pressing does not have the hidden track after "Blackhole", "Analog Odyssey". It's just silence.

This pressing contains a version of "Pay No Mind" which is unique and unavailable elsewhere. There is very little known about how it ended up on this version of the LP. More can be seen at:
