Release Notes

  • Label: none, a fan-club release
  • Catalogue#: - none -
  • Format: 12" vinyl LP
  • Released: unknown

This bootleg exists in three editions.

First edition

  • The first edition was limited to 50 copies of which not all have been distributed.
  • These copies are hand-numbered on the back cover and on the vinyl labels.
  • Plain yellow labels on black vinyl with hand-numbering in silver letters.
  • Originally, these vinyls were pressed for a re-issue of the 2LP-bootleg A Black Pack,
    but remained unused.
  • Comes in a plain white cover with a b/w-xerox glued to the cover front and back, resp.
  • Apparently, the covers for this edition were also remains from another release,
    as they have a red stamp on the back noting "limited edition of 100 copies".
    This stamp is hidden, however, by the b/w-xerox glued to the back sleeve,
    but it shines through the xerox when you look at it under a strong lamp.
