Just pulled out my copy of this vinyl (deadwax matches, but I purchased the vinyl used and in a generic sleeve.) It is slightly opaque when held up to light.

This is the true 1st press with the complete etching in the deadwax. The 2nd issue has part of the etching scribbled over. I have seen many originals of this lp and very few had the full untouched deadwax so if you can find this exact pressing you should hold onto it! Its super rare. I will also caution you before you buy from a seller that posted in this listing. Most of them think they have this press but they really need to look closer at their deadwax to make sure part of the deadwax isn't circled over. Also, for the 1000+ that say they own this exact press i call BS. I bet more than half have the 2nd edition with the circled out deadwax.

I have three pressings of this release(SST, Blast First, and the pink ORG 043). The 1986 SST edition sounds the best to me. I think this is their best album. It's a great mix of avantgrade and song structure. An SST classic!

I got an SST-059 copy with a barcode on the back of the sleeve. The barcode isn't printed in a typical white box though, it's just directly overlaid like all the text. Original sleeve variation perhaps? I thought about adding its own entry but the deadwax indicates it's the exact same as an original.
