I have a couple of copies of this that doesn't seem to match any of the listed releases.

Mine has the following:

SST-020 on the spine, but the catalog number is not on the vinyl labels or the back cover.
Side A: Real World, Deadly Skies, It's Not Funny Anymore, First Of The Last Calls.
Side B (45 RPM): Lifeline, Diane, Out On A Limb
Side A Etchings: SST-020-A THAT OLD STAINLESS CHARITY. IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW, SHIRLEY. L-15122, kdisc (stamp)
Side B Etchings: SST-2-027-D ...WITHIN THE CIRCUITS THAT MAKE PAC-MEN DIE AND VESSELS DISINTEGRATE L-17380
Held up to the light, it's translucent brown, but black without light. Indicating this seems to be Quiex II vinyl.

Seems to be very similar to this release: https://www.discogs.com/H%C3%BCsker-D%C3%BC-Metal-Circus/release/6548039
But with different B-side tracks.

My copy of this came with a huge full color, glossy poster of the LP cover. Anybody else have this ?

I know it doesn't say anywhere, but this came to ships in 2018, so isn't a 2018 reissue? Shouldn't that be added? It is definitely an official repress, and I highly doubt that my local record shop just happened to have gotten hold of three 1991 issues - also they look brand new.

Mine came with an SST-Cat listing nothing newer than SST-319 (actually from Greg Ginns Outfit GONE), released 1995. And my LP has the colored labels as described for the colored versions from 1990 (black, white, silver and bronze labels) but never for a black vinyl issue shipped no earlier than 1995 ... So that's a bit confusing. If anyone has an idea if this is yet another issue as mine does not really fit this one, let me know.

Mine came with an SST catalog with "Introducing The Minutemen" being labeled as one of their recent releases, so mine must've been from 1998.

This (blue) pressing is the first colored vinyl for this album. Other colors are from later pressings.

Not all of them. I bought my copy first week out in Minneapolis. Matrix numbers match above exactly as well. Definitely not Quiex II vinyl. Yes, it does have $12.98 on the spine. Regarding purple / blue: I think they are the same, just a printing variation.

Want an easy way to check for pre-90s pressings? Put the record up to a bright light, it should look translucent brown and opaque black when taken away from the light. Most copies pressed in the 80s were on this Quiex II type vinyl.
