...the consensus of opinion seems to fall into the 'could do better' camp when it comes to this, the second wax from the 5, most cats seem to think that it's a let down after the jams joint which was a riot storm reflecting the detroit times...'back in the usa' is partly taking the 'GET BACK' route, to play some 50's rock'n'roll, much like the flamin' groovies were doing at around the same time, taking pure rock'n'roll back to before the acid washed in and turned the whole joint day-glow...having the manager john sinclair sent down for a 2-10 stretch after getting set up by narco pigs destabilized the combo, the oppressor drew even nearer, they were being targeted by pig forces in different towns and cities as proven when the 5 took a kicking in chicago...playing basic rocking tunes they hoped to keep on rolling, to move ever onward, this time taking the revolution to the kids through the transistor radio which is why the sound has the treble stacked fairly full on...they took the 'get back' parameters to include how the sound must be that came from battery powered AM radio back when they themselves were early teenagers digging the wild boss sounds that came flooding through the ether...dig the lyrics and a cat knows this is directed to the kids, extolling rock roll freedom/rocking the high school in all different forms/getting hip to the amerikkkan ruse/not falling for the pig line, the revolution is pouring off this disk, it's abbie hoffman backed by chuck berry, both of whom themselves suffered pig trouble as they upset the balance of power, they were considered extremely dangerous by the ruling class, trouble rocked (and rolled) the empire...going to europe in 1970 to promote the disk helped them keep the faith where revolution and rocking went hand-in-hand from paris to prague, they were welcomed by leather jacket radicals as well as pure rocking daddios...any cats of a doubtful nature as far as this joint only need to enter into the spirit in which it was made, to party on the ruins of the corrupt system with a reefer in one hand and a transistor radio in the other, pushed tightly on the ear...dig the beat, its the memphis flyer steaming through the night, spreading the word in every direction, giving hope to all that feel the groove...

The bass is almost non-existent. Is this the case for every pressing, I wonder?

Does anyone have any info regarding pressing with "east Detroit" in the dead wax? Cover appears to be 1st or early pressing, Atlantic label.

Best anti-American in-love-with America album of all time? Hey, fuck Springsteen! Does anyone know why the three MC5 studio albums never been given the deluxe, remastered reissue treatment like the Stooges and the Velvets stuff? It makes absolutely no sense at all, and it's a goddamn cheek and an almighty affront to the Five, who represent just as thick a slab of punk bedrock as their more diligently reissued contemporaries. Think about it for a second: freshly remastered versions of Jams, USA and High Time? Notice how you involuntarily reach for your wallet? Come on, somebody do it - please!

I have one that has the matrix in parentheses (ST-A-691719), and I can't find a matching release. Any help?

Have a very nice 1st U.S. pressing myself that has a thick laminated front cover.Very cool looking.This seems to go unmentioned in descriptions for this release.Not sure how long this went on..I have seen others w/o the laminate front as well. Anyone else w/additional info, feel free to elaborate on this.

Looks the same as the other UK 1977 listing. This one adds the runout info.
Also, as there is no prior UK release why is this a reissue or repress? Isn't it first UK?
