Notes

Recorded January 1983 at Radio Tokyo, Venice, California.

Fourth edition of 750 copies, March 1987, with different artwork. The story on this edition, based on information from the IPR archives, is that in March of 1987, as this single had been out of print for some time, IPR printed radically re-designed covers and labels for a fourth edition, planned to be 750 copies. When the singles came back from the pressing plant, and after several back-orders had been shipped, it was discovered that a serious defect had affected the pressing. All 750+ records were checked, and approximately 40 copies were found to be free of the defect. The rest of the vinyl was destroyed and it was ultimately decided not to repress the single (as it would have required a re-printing of the 4-color labels). The defect-free vinyl was packaged in the new covers and eventually the remaining covers were also destroyed. Some of the remaining 40 copies were given to band members and the rest put into IPR's archives, some of which were later sold to the public.
