Pressing history:

1st pressing (Original mix):
Cover with white border around red background, black band name and printed center labels.

2nd pressing (Original mix):
Cover with white border around orange background, black band name and plain white center labels.

Pressing note to the first and second pressing:
The record plant made an error and accidentally printed covers with orange background instead of the ordered red colored one. So the band waited for the correctly printed red covers before they distributed and sold the first pressing of the record (with printed center labels) to public. The first pressing quickly sold out and the band ended up pressing more record (with plain white center labels). They used the covers with the orange background which they bought at a discount from the pressing plant and combined them with these repressed records.
So the first pressing of the record was actually sold in a reprinted cover and the 2nd pressing in the original, misprinted cover.

3rd pressing (remixed):
Sleeve with black border around red background, white band name, different track order and printed center labels

UK pressing (remixed):
Sleeve with black border around red background, white band name, different track order and printed center labels

I found this used in the late 80s and like a dumbass drew all over the white label because I didn't realize that this was a rare pressing. Before you crucify me, please remember that discogs did not exist at the time!

I'm new to Discogs. I have the above Vinyl reissue (Sealed) with this barcode: 0 38161-9001-1 2. It appears to be a hard to find release. Stats show that 18 have it and 12 want it. Nothing Sold to compare. Being sealed, is it rare? thnx

The hotlink in the notes provided lead to a version of the lp that has a similar looking record cover, however the matrix / runouts are different. The hotlink would make more sense if it lead to here insead: https://www.discogs.com/MDC-Millions-Of-Dead-Cops/release/4800622 where the record cover AND the matrix / runouts are the same (minus the barcode of course).

I always considered this album one of the better sounding punk albums in terms of sound quality. I just realized it's because mine is a 3rd pressing (East Bay Ray/Klaus remix). Haven't hear the others, but this one is crystal clear and punchy.

apparently they intended to release this through Unicorn Records(home to Black Flag at that time) but decided to release it themselves. theres a few thousand made of the original version so it isnt that rare..plus the East Bay Ray/Klaus remix(3rd version on..) is far better anyway

My copy is misprinted/an error copy. The labels are flipped (the label for side 2 is on side 1, and vice versa). Anyone else?

I have the white border cover (exactly like on first press) but the record is the the R Radical press (red label). Anyone has seen this version before?

this is probably this nicest vinyl reissue i have ever seen of this classic hardcore punk record from 1982, THIS RECORD WAS THE BEST HARDCORE PUNK RECORD IN MY OPINION OUT OF THE SAN FRANSISCO PEACE PUNK SCENE BACK IN THE EARLY TO LATE 80S, anyway that said this lp was pressed on transparent orange vinyl and sounds as great as ever, the sleeve is replicated to look like the original self released 1982 sleeve almost down to perfection, this comes with the lyrics and the usual artwork, i dont know how many of these where pressed as it was a rsd release last year in 2014 but all i can say is THIS IS A FANTASTIC COPY and a great edition to my collection. some how, some way i think people will still be listening to this classic 50 years from now, it is good to see there was demand enough for this reissue last year as i first bought this in 1984.......
