When I found my (used) copy of this in an independent new/used record store in Seattle in the late 80's - It actually came with a poster; folded in half so the width was about the size of the cover and the height close to twice the height of the cover - The poster said "Marching Music For Psychic Youth" as well as "DISCIPLINE" and featured mainly a large b/w photo of young Val Denham with knife (the photo which later showed up in cropped CD size in one of the four TG Live compilations disc insert/covers.) Unfortunately I sold the poster off when I sold much of my collection in 2006. I had never previously, nor since; seen, read, or heard mention of this poster as ever having existed. I am assuming it was included in a first very limited number of this Discipline 12" single release; but have never come across any reference to that point. It was an amazing poster, and at least I made a scan of it so I do have that; Though I'd of course love to own an original copy again. I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered this poster, just knows of its existence, any details on how many were printed; etc.

The versions on this 12" aren't half as good as the one you'll find on Youtube (San Francisco 1981). IMHO.
