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.

Just found this at my local shop for $27 sealed. Everywhere I check it's sold out or selling for super high prices. Dunno how the vinyl distribution world works sometimes

Is it just me, or has this album become incredibly difficult to find these days?

Didn't get my hands on this oddity until a few years ago. At first I wasn't thrilled with the remix (Minutemen on reverb?!?) but it makes for an interesting side trip after you've heard the album several hundred times. Kinda like taking an unknown route to the barber you've been seeing for the last 35 years.

is there any way to tell an original press from a reissue if it's sealed? i have an early sealed pressing, but am struggling to determine if it's a true first press.....any help?

I'm a bit confused from this statement: "Side A & B have no Groove Notations on the repress (although at least one pressing has original groove notations on Sides A & B - “Arena Rock is the New Wave” and “Punk Rock is the new Nostalgia” on sides A & B respectively)"...
My question: is it the same pressing (with two different matrix variations?... strange) or are there at least two different?

I have the surface noise, but don't really mind it, what I do mind tho is the skip mine has near the end of side b

Anyone else have Side B (Side Mike) cut off near the end of "History Lesson - Part II"? Shortly after the lyric "Our band is scientist rock," my pressing slowed down, came back, and slowed down to a stop.

Their absolute masterpiece! I was only 8 in the summer of 1984, so I was too young to actually feel SST's high flying summer, but I discovered it ten years after. And is still one of my favourite punkrock albums.

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