bscrawler, just now finding your message but I too have an uncensored copy of this item with an embossed X into the back cover. Can you tell me anything you found out about this. I've checked with many others but no one knows. Thanks..

Made an interesting discovery on my uncensored copy of this LP. I was l taking pics of it and discovered an embossed "x" on the back cover bottom left. Hard to see if you are not looking for it given the chaos of the cover images, but it's there. Anyone else ever seen or know about this? Cannot determine if it's something Elektra did or the previous owner did.
