The Replacements – Stink ("Kids Don't Follow" Plus Seven)
"This 'mini-LP' was released on June 24, 1982. The first three pressings (2,000 + 1,500 + 1,500) used hand stamped white jackets. Each pressing had unique markings and were easily told apart. (First was black, the second was red, the third was done in black with a fake bar code made from a cut out 'potato stamp') For the fourth and future pressings we went to pre-printed jackets. The final pressing in the late eighties (to run out the jackets) of approx 1,000 were pressed on colored vinyl."
From Rob Nordin, Twin City Imports of St Paul,MN, Twin Tone's distributor at the time:
"TCI received our first 200 for distribution to our record shop customers throughout the Midwest with a plain white jacket and without the rubber stamping/labeling yet on them. Somehow, we ended up with the rubber stamp, ink pad, etc. (delivered by Twin Tone person/Jesperson? Picked up from Twin Tone by Grady Linehan?) and each jacket needed to be stamped as orders were filled. An unnamed TCI colleague was not a fan of the band (to say the least) and with each order they needed to fill that included the EP, they went wild with the rubber stamp. I've seen copies on e-Bay where these wild mutilple, overkill stamped versions are being offered and the "handiwork" is ascribed to the band. That could also be but I know many were "created" by a nameless TCI colleague."
