How's the sound on this? Better or worse than the SST reissue (since I know not many have the original)? Pressed at RTI is a plus, though.

Can somebody help me distinguish the first Neutral press from the unofficial 2014 reissue? The etchings are listed the same...is the blue border on the first pressing the key? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

On my copy side A and side B are flipped from what it says here. Anyone else notice this?

I have a copy of this album I bought in 1983 in Germany. The back of the album is upside down. Is this the same for all of them or is mine unusual? Please help!

Sonic Youth's self titled debut was released in 1982 on Glenn Branca's Neutral imprint. Their debut record adequately illustrates the band's ancestry in the NYC "no-wave" scene, of which Branca was a key player, in groups like Theoretical Girls and The Static. Although the music is invariably stamped with the signature guitar madness which would make them (in)famous later, the album is an interesting little curiosity of drone, repetition and some surprisingly dance-able grooves - compliments, no doubt, of one-album drummer Richard Edson, who would later drum for Konk and become a successful film actor. The album was re-released in 1987 by SST on CD, CS and LP. Curiously, when DGC reissued the band's back catalog in the early '90s, "Sonic Youth" was not included. Only the track "I Dreamed I Dream" was included on the DGC best-of-the-indie years comp "Screaming Fields Of Sonic Love."

"Sonic Youth" was expanded and reissued again in 2006 by Geffen on CD and the band's own Goofin label on vinyl.
