I have a grey, slightly marbled version of this. No identifiers. Except the run out Mother - A1 -B1. A few pops, and some light crackling in places. None of which you can hear on the actual tracks, so overall quite good. Cost me £10. Still, I think I should invest in a mint/near mint 1st pressing.

I hate bootlegs...don't waste your money on those unofficial releases, you're throwing your money away... its buying a cd pressed to vinyl. Sometimes Its worth just shelling out the extra cash for a 1st press that sounds amazing..I know how much they go for but if you search hard enough you can get one for a decent price, the boots seem to be pricey also though..I've seen them for like 50 bucks I spent 70 bucks recently on my 1st press.

Aside from lovers/collectors of Misfits and Samhain, this is really the only Danzig album you need to own.
After this, Glenn's ego really went into overdrive. This album is great though, at times it sounds like Danzig is channelling the spirit of a decaying and cantankerous Elvis Presley. It perfectly captures the interesting aspects of heavy metal without the posturing and cheesy guitar solos. The production by Rick Rubin is unrivalled; the sound quality is so solid and clean throughout that each song flows perfectly into the next without a drop in intensity. The other interesting aspect of this album is the way Danzig’s lyrics convey an atmosphere of morbidity and barely restrained aggression without the use of profanity or gratuitous violence.
