    I’m putting this down as a First Pressing variation and not a repress as it was purchased week of release
    with Foldout and PA Sticker with KM in run outs but no PR-M R
    • Avatar de bungler666
      Sounds a lot better than I expected. Not too quiet for 31 minutes per side. Sounds a bit better than the reissue, bass is deeper and warmer.

        I'm not sure what the version of my LP is. Comes with insert "Murder Ballads Bulletin” foldout lyrics sheet and white inner sleeve. No “PARENTAL ADVISORY” stickered on front cover, and NO Barcode in the back. Only STUMM138. Does anyone have the LP with these same characteristics?

          Looks like PR-M in runout, on close exam.
