    I am entering that one right now, it's in my personal collection and found behind a dumpster in Paris, by a local popsinger here in Sweden I knew, he also found some popgroups for himself and took a couple extra ones like this MF which was good for me...he saw them with a bunch of records probably cleared out from a record place there placed neatly on the ground to be thrown away (I also have a GG Allin from the same place from 1987)
