    I have two of these. The inlays are identical in every manner but one. The discs are printed identically where it is silver. Both have the same disc layout, text and design, however one disc has white text and design on a black background. I found two black disks in the other releases, but their disc design is different, so it is not one of those. What am I overlooking?

      'Press The Eject And Give Me The Tape" is on my Top 3 Live Albums Ever list...

      besides the never-can-be-overplayed "Bela Lugosi's Dead" you have "Terror Couple Kill Colonel", "In The Flat Field", "The Spy In The Cab", and "Stigmata Matyr". (it cannot be denied they are all goth classics.) the rest of the songs are marvelous, my favorite being the cover "Rose Garden Funeral Of Sores".

      i am not usually a fan of live albums but i pull this one out all of the time.
