Notes:
The third studio album from the Minutemen.

The original LP has 45 tracks.

On 1987 CD reissue, some of the original tracks ("Don't Look Now", "Mr. Robot's Holy Orders", the cover of Van Halen's "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love", the cover of Steely Dan's "Doctor Wu" and "Little Man With A Gun In His Hand") were omitted due to time constraints, as CDs could only hold 74 minutes at the time. In 1989, Double Nickels On The Dime was released on CD again, with "Don't Look Now" and "Doctor Wu" restored.

Do all copies have the misprint of "THE WORLD ACCORDING TO NOUNDS" on the back cover?

My version of this repress is excellent sounding. I think plaidzebra just got a bad copy.

I have both a clear and white version of the cassette. Does anyone else have or seen both?

Perhaps their most well-known song is titled "History Lesson - Part II" on the LP label and CD cover, "History Lesson (Part II)" on the rear LP cover, and "History Lesson - Part Two" on the live Ballot Result LP. (sigh)

This was released in July 1984, not October. The magic SST summer of this, Zen Arcade and Meat Puppets II.

Cover: tip on with white finished cardboard on interior (I believe original is unfinished)

My copy (purchased new in the early 90's) is as described above, but the interior is unfinished and it did not come with a catalog. Great album!

This is an excellent record. However, the law of "too good to be true" applies to this repress. I bought it new for $14, an excellent price for a fresh vinyl copy of an esteemed recording. Of course, I can't speak for every copy, but on my copy "Side Mike" is marred by a bad pressing, staticky vinyl noise throughout. On the plus side, it otherwise sounds great. But if you're contemplating buying this SST repress, you may want to reconsider.
