Notes:
First Pressing:
300 full-color, silkscreened covers. Black vinyl.

Second Pressing:
200 on yellow vinyl, photocopied covers.

Third Pressing - ? Pressing:
Limited to 3,100 or more. The paper colors were all random colored paper after the 2nd pressing. So we don't really remember how many of what color, etc. The covers were just xeroxed in random batches whenever they started to run out, with whatever paper was available at the copy center. Each time we made them, the covers were gradually worse quality, because we kept photocopying from the last batch of covers! The final pressing of 200 was really hideous, with PINK covers...we drew cartoons all over them before we copied them, really dumb stuff! Like writing Roger's name, & his girlfriend's name above the people, etc.! There are 15 with colored vinyl and white xerox covers with the original drawings used for the xeroxes. There are 63 xeroxed on pink using one of those covers. There may be more out there.

There are also 40 Smoke Spot 7"s out there with a completely different cover that was sold at a show in Gainesville at the Orange and Brew.

Some other variations include: Black and white xerox cover with purple vinyl, Yellow cover and red ink with black vinyl, Yellow xeroxed cover with black vinyl, Yellow cover with LTJ logo lettering on the top with black vinyl.

referencing Smoke Spot, 7", EP, RP, Yel, NIR-012
the LTJ site has all the info on this. Not sure how to go about editing. Not seeing my copy reflected here. Black ink, white paper, yellow vinyl. Appears to be the 2nd pressing. From lessthanjake.com:
