My copy has exact BAOI, and is a 3" CD in a 5" sleeve.
Were all copies like this?

I used to have either this version or Manowar - Hail To England, had not only vinyl surface noise but also a SKIP during the title track.
Unacceptable.

Columbia's "Hall Of Fame" series dated their sides according to when they were originally released as singles, not by when they were recorded

A friend's copy had the same typo, although I'm not sure offhand whether it was the US Combat LP or German Noise LP. May have been the former, but either way it was quite humorous.

Correction: Late '80s. Until sometime in '85 there were no barcodes on their cassettes, and the spines just had two long horizontal pink/red lines printed on white with the artist, title, label logo & catalog number.

I just got this version yesterday, disappointed with the scant packaging, no lyric-sheet like the CD had, just a plain paper inner sleeve... but good to have this again, just for the legendary novelty at least. So.... Caveat emptor.

I did the same with old Mentors tapes in a similar situation during the mid-'90s (along w/ Barney Rubble And The Cunt Stubble), but everyone else there had a sense of humor, even the manager

Found this LP at Goodwill a few months ago. I'm here to ask whether it's supposed to have an insert or printed inner sleeve.

This should be listed as a compilation due to having many tracks from later on, not part of the master release page of The New Vaudeville Band - Winchester Cathedral .

Bought this on cassette when it first came out, later got an '88 2xLP, then the CD (not sure what exact versions of the latter two as I sold or traded both years ago).

#21.1 is actually a re-mix of "Crack Slave", not "Vanilla Ice Warriors".
posted a comment on Meat Shits - Fuck Frenzy. about 1 year ago
This version has an outro ending Side B sampled from an early-'90s "Liquid Television" episode, which is not on the Moribund CD.

I don't know about the self-released tape or the Defiled Crypt CD reissue.

Got this CD today... Disappointed with not only the skimpy packaging, but there's a one-second gap between every track... and spectral analysis shows most tracks have anything above 16 kHz cut off, except tracks 1-10 & 13-15 around 18 kHz.

Great... See full review

"HC 34987" is the catalog number for the Mastersound Half-Speed LPs. I believe we have a mono here at the shop...
Matrices are:

This is still available from their official website, so I don't quite understand some others $elling the download on Bandcamp... Well, it is what it is but I'm sticking to this version as all others are derived from it. I'd gladly buy their other output.

I just picked up a sealed copy of this LP. A bit confused, as when I opened it it bore the exact same labels as Donald J. Borror - Common Bird Songs but with the same matrix etchings as Donald J. Borror - Common Bird Songs which judging from the runouts could very well be from 1981 ??

Mine has the runout as RO1530008 G4 970710 **
Same mastering SID code: ifpi LF12
No mould SID code.

Not so sure this is a 2000 pressing. I bought mine in Summer of 1998 at Red Stream's merch-table. 1997 re-press perhaps (judging by "970710") ??
