1 set. This acetate set was created by The Hit Factory Mastering, inc.
Test: Caroline: CAR11207 (September 5, 2001)

3 black vinyl copies. These test pressings were created by Universal Test Pressing and have "OUCH THAT'S HOT!" matrix etchings. At least 2 LP sleeves were also printed for review by band members. No further vinyl was ever pressed.

CDR: Caroline: 24381-1207-2 (September 2001)
xxxx CDR copies. These very rare copies are CDRs pressed in the Caroline Records main office and sent to a select few. They had no cover or artwork, but came with a white 8.5"x11" promo sheet for the album.

Promo: Caroline: 24381-1207-2 (September 2001)
2000 CD copies. These copies come with the artwork, regular CD, and back cover art just like the regular CD version would have. Most have a white strip over the bar code symbol, but some have a drill hole in one corner instead. A small amount have neither.

Session:[07/26/2001 West West Side Music]

Notes: This album was originally scheduled for an October 30, 2001 release but was cancelled due to Jerry Only's disappointment with the mix and Glenn Danzig's disappointment with the artwork.

About 2000 promotional CD copies were pressed and distributed. 40,000 regular CD copies were pressed, but later destroyed. Several record sleeves were printed and distributed (without vinyl) to members of the band. The original plan was to press 2000 copies of orange vinyl and

1000 copies of white vinyl. The album was "postponed" on October 15, 2001.

Very carefully produced bootleg which almost exactly imitates the original. Details of verifying the bootleg can be found here: http://questionable12hits.page.tl/Bootleg-versions.htm

I must have a bad pressing. One side sounds fine and the other has a constant crackle throughout.

Sounds pretty great for a bootleg. No pops and no surface noise, at least to my ears.

Sound very good for a boot, a must for any Misfits collectors. I got my copy in a HMV store in 2003.

One Official Cd is missing if someone can post it. It's the Official Europe Virgin cd version.This one is extremely rare, and how many copies made are unknown.

I believe this is the correct version I have. If it is then the sleeve is pretty poor quality, so I swapped it with the 1989 MSP Sessions sleeve. Sound quality is great on this though. I recommend getting it.

IMO the best Misfits album out there - I love everything they (The Danzig era) put out, but this is the one I'd recommend, if I had to introduce somebody to The Misfits vast catalog.

These are excellent recordings. I’ve never heard a Misfits record with such a wide sound stage and open sound. These sound like live studio cuts, all the energy and rawness is there while still retaining a somewhat clean and polished sound. Never heard the Misfits sound this good to be honest. Too bad this is an unofficial release because these really are some of the best recorded versions of these songs. Punchy drums, fat low end, crunchy guitar, present vocals. An expansive and dynamic mix. The version of London Dungeon is insane. It’s like a supercharged, runaway big-rig demolishing everything in its path. Danzig’s vocals are energetic and on point, you can tell he’s giving it his all. Quality pressing, flat, centered, dead quiet. Really happy I stumbled upon this one. Mine is numbered 97/116 written in red ink on the lower right back cover

I have this same release, although mine is on translucent green vinyl, so there are at least two colors.

Just got this one... sound quality is infinitely better than the 1989 MSP Sessions version of it.
