Numbered or not, am I right in saying this is a reissue from some 7 years after the 1st appearance of 'The Black Album'? Is it the fact that it's an official WB pressing (& ltd/numbered) that warrants the price tag? I thought all these years that there was only one promo & one commercial batch made up in 87' by WB, who shelved/pulled it before it went retail. Shrouded in mystery & the worth of these many following variants seems to be purely subjective....
