The Cramps + Kevin Gray master + pressed at QRP = Sonic gold. An audiophile release. Grab one if you can

Wow can’t believe how expensive this got. I remember buying it on this site for about $24 back in 2019

Cheesy bootleg with washed out cover graphics, label with the band pic from the back cover on side A and the cover shot from Gravest Hits on Side B. Sounds fine, on very heavy 220 gram vinyl... Came out at a time when the album was out of print on LP, so it filled that vacuum. Not easy to find, if you find a copy in an auction situation, br prepared to drop big bucks...

I think that the pictures of the record labels are wrong, there is no 85 in the matrix on this release. The pictures are from the 85 repress with another mix https://www.discogs.com/de/The-Cramps-Songs-The-Lord-Taught-Us/release/3644621

Drastic Plastic has been killing it. Wonderful sounding pressing. I love that they got Kevin Gray to remaster so many great albums

Anyone know of boots that have these mixes? So ONLY the test pressings have them? I remember seeing a matte textured cover when it was first issued.( of the 1ST official release.)
