A bootleg-LP with a compliation of various early songs, demos and live appearances ...
- Label: Scarabeus
- Cataloge No.: SR 104
- Format: 12" vinyl LP
- Date of Release: 1992
- Allegedly a limited edition of 1.000 copies.
- The title In Red is not directly stated on the cover but has been adopted widely,
- maybe due to the colour of the print; it does appear on the spine of the cover, however,
- together with the catalogue#.
- The artwork on the cover front of this LP is very similar to the 7" bootleg singles The Damage Done (Primary)
- and The Damage Done - Adrenochrome. Apart from the format, they only differ in as far as
- - the background here is black and white on the singles' covers, and
- - the lines at the bottom, black here as well, are purple or blue on the covers of the 7"s.
- Beyond that, the same content was released by the same label on The Final Floorshow bootleg.
- It is not known, however, which of the two bootlegs was released first.
- The track lists on the cover back and on the labels are wrong.
- The first two tracks are given as Teachers and Adrenochrome,
- while the album actually starts with Floorshow and Lights.
- These two tracks are then repeated (just as listed under A3 and A4).
- Furthermore, there are some misspellings on the cover and the labels:
- Adrenochrome is listed as "Adrenachrome" and Sister Ray is modified into "Sisters"
