Also released in Germany as "Play Loud".
Sometimes also incorrectly referenced as "High Fidelity" due to the joke logo printed on the front cover.

The B-52's is an eponymous New Wave album by Athens, Georgia-based rock band The B-52's. The kitschy lyrics and mood, and the hook-laden harmonies helped establish a fanbase for the band, who would go on to release several chart-topping singles. The album cover was designed by Tony Wright (credited as Sue Ab Surd).

The B-52's peaked at number 59 on the Billboard 200 and "Rock Lobster" peaked at number 56 on the Hot 100. In 2003 the TV network VH1 named The B-52's the 99th greatest album of all time. Shortly before his death, John Lennon said he enjoyed the album. In his 1995 book The Alternative Music Almanac, Alan Cross placed the album in the #9 spot on the list of '10 Classic Alternative Albums'. In 2003 the album was ranked number 152 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The EU 2019 (180g) has these matrices [as close as I can ascertain]:
B 764674 —O1 A^ [inverted v is at foot of capital A; might be a small ‘1’ ]

Side B:
B 764674 . O1 B^ [inverted v is at foot of capital B; might be a small ‘1’]

5387322 in both sides.

Poster on the Steve Hoffman site claims the mastering for this is the same as the Bellman yellow 2018 US.

The B-52s yellow plastic carrier bag came with initial copies of 'Wild Planet' in the UK, NOT with the debut LP. I bought both albums the first week of release and have no knowledge of a carrier bag coming with the first album. The only freebie with the debut was the 'Rock Lobster' 1978 US 45 repress.

This pressing is very much like the 1st U.S. pressing in both looks and sound. I have both and they are excellent records. If you can’t find the first U.S. pressing, this can be had cheaper and is a great second choice.

Solid release, however the MOFI Silver Series suffer from poor quality / noisy vinyl. Mastering is great, as is the artwork.

I just bought a copy but it doesn't have Chris Bellman's initials in the deadwax (even though it says on this site he cut the lacquers) which is odd. Does anyone have CB in the deadwax?

Can confirm, excellent pressing of this great album. Clean, flat and quiet record, no ticks or pops and no non-fill. Sounds fantastic, relatively warm and full sounding, not lean at all. Recommended reissue if you are looking for one.

Great pressing from Music on Vinyl. Sounds absolutely terrific to me although I have nothing to compare it to.

Low-frequency noise is heard in pauses.In General, it is not a bad publication.The sleeve is made of thick cardboard.
