I'm not convinced this 'rough cover' is an original 1988 pressing. One or two other people have posted here to say that they bought it on day of release and their copy has a glossy sleeve and it's the same with me. The 2004 reissue, on the other hand, DEFINITELY does have a rough cover - https://www.discogs.com/Pixies-Surfer-Rosa/release/2109418
You can tell the two apart by the inner sleeve. the 1988 issue uses gold metallic ink for the inner. The inner in the 2004 issue is a non-metallic yellow/brown colour.
(Btw, there's a similar difference between original copies of Bossanova and the 2004 reissue. Originals use silver metallic ink on the front cover. reissues use a non-metallic grey.)

I have this exact version but it DOESN'T have the circled U on the dead wax. The labels, cover and sleeve are identical.

Original copies had a small silver "modesty" hype sticker placed over "Rosa's" bare torso. It said "pixies surfer Rosa" on it.

I have an old rough trade pressing that has a white insert, printed with the same pictures and info as the gold sleeve most editions have. Haven't seen this variation listed.

My copy of this pressing sounds fantastic, the best presentation I've heard of this album. The sleeve is nicely done too.

Is this really a sleeve variation without the text on the front? Or did someone just wrongly upload the CD artwork here?

Hi - am I right in thinking that there's no booklet with this one?

I have an import of the album from the Uk in the 4AD pressing that I got from the Kobey's Swap Meet in San Diego for less then five dollars and it sounds amazing but that isn't why I am writing this. I am writing this because this is such an amazing record. Kim Deal ROCKS!!!! her bass playing stands alone as a such a talent towards the whole grunge movement of the nineties along with her back ground vocals, only Lou Barlow could come close. Joey Santiago thrash slash noise guitar shows that Jimi Henedrix is alive and going strong. Gigantic should be known by all as one of the greatest rock songs of all time.

Here is a thorough review of this pressing, with special attention to the sound qualities from song to song:
