Like most Rhino reissues - Rhino pressed both an EU version and a US version [Kick Out The Jams]. This is the EU pressing.

Judging from the matrix nos, it looks as though plating was done at Rainbo Records (S-83813 / S-83814) and EU version pressed by Optimal.

Front shrink wrap has large Rhino Vinyl sticker on it including Bar Code.

From sticker:

    An interesting and fun bit of life revelry, must have been a very loud gig. Pretty clean playing, the mix is not so hot, but got to give this band credit for the energy they have.

    It's always funny when the punk and live records that do not necessarily require high-end treatment get re-issued on nice vinyl and spiffy packaging.

    Super clean pressing.

      Great sound, as noted, and very clean pressing, didn't need any cleaning at all and zero surface noise. And yes, uncensored.

        Is this censored or uncensored? Any more reviews on the sound? Thanks.

          I just heard this... Chris Bellman made this a new listening experience he took away the murk and added what it needed you can hear everything now... I never knew till today they ever did a reissue of this cause it was only on vinyl not CD which it should of gotten... Bellman took that two track analog tape and sucked all the detail you could never hear and it came alive. This is about as close as a remix of the 8 track tape as we will get... I was blown away... Since 1991 I was hearing LP's and all the old original verisons but their time capsules they couldn't get out of the tape that 21 century technology and not only that Chris Bellman or Bernie Grundman either one they are masters of getting murk out of 2 track analog mixes and turning it all around like magic. I rarely make a issue of a album but this was in the top 5.

            I have a European pressing of this release on red/white/blue vinyl. Anyone have the same version?
