Notes

Suicide: Alan Vega · Martin Rev is the second studio album by Suicide. The album was produced by Ric Ocasek of The Cars for ZE Records. The album was released in May 1980 and was included as on of NME's top albums of the year. Both Vega and Rev released solo albums following the album's release.

On the original LP artwork the names Alan Vega and Martin Rev appear prominently on the cover above "Suicide". This ambiguity has led to considerable confusion over the precise title of the album ever since it was released. It has been referred to by different sources variously as "Alan Vega - Martin Rev" and/or "Suicide" and occasionally Vega and Rev have been interpreted as the artists, as opposed to Suicide. "Suicide: Alan Vega · Martin Rev" was used by David Nobahkt in his book 'Suicide: No Compromise' (2004).

The album was re-issued by Mute/Blast First in 1999 with new cover art and this time formally titled "The Second Album". The reissue featured three bonus tracks: "Super Subway Comedian", "Dream Baby Dream", and "Radiation" as well as a bonus disc of live material recorded at New York City in the Museum for Living Artists in 1975 entitled "The First Rehearsal Tapes".

I will freely admit I am a noob but my copy is badly off center and the wow is so severe as to make it unlistenable.

My copy is in absolute perfect condition. Excellent sound, no artificial noises, no glue on the records. Top quality. Highly recommended.

per usual, great quality reissue from superior viaduct. only issue with my copy is that there's a extra a-side label glued on, so it's kinda lumpy and weird.

otherwise, stellar pressing.

edit: the extra label peeled right off with no residue left behind.

I had the off centre b-side label, sounds pretty good though. No clicks or pops and the music sounds clear and loud. I use a static gun and discwasher brush before every play.

I am pretty sure this is a bootleg. Print quality of the back cover is kind of bad. Sound is pretty good though. Plus nice vinyl colour.

What's the quality of this like? My copy of the s/t wasn't so great.

Finally back in my collection after having lost the original LP years ago. If there was ever a timely reissue of a seminal album look no further.

Just bought a copy of this version sold as mint and it does not sound great. Suspect it's a bootleg. Obviously could just be my copy but beware...
