Notes:
There were two Combined Effort presses. The 1st press has red lables and the 2nd had silver labels. Both original Combined effort presses came with a tri-fold sleeve. Many 1st presses had hand written messages on the paper dust sleeves. Approximately 40-50 silver label records came with a paper "Jesus" sleeve, which were sold at 1988 Lismar Lounge show when they ran out of normal sleeves. Several leftover "Jesus" sleeves were also sold with later Vermiform press records. The early Vermiform Records presses have bi-fold sleeves (blank on the inside) and an insert. These records have with "F NY" labels and have the same matrix etchings as the Combined Effort presses (they used the same stampers). The final Vermiform press has a bi-fold sleeve with printing on the inside and black labels on the records. It has different matrix etchings the earlier presses, as new stampers and test presses were made.

My copy of the Vermiform pressing(s) has the booklet insert: anybody knows how many pressings/copies with booklet?

The red (burgundy) labels are the FIRST PRESSING, and silver are the second. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=191732880872104&set=t.503796666&type=1&theater (Life's Blood singer Jay confirms this in the third comment down.) Many sites apparently have that incorrect info about the pressings...
