Rocket from the Crypt/Deadbolt


Smells Like Grease for Peace

Cha Cha Cha b/w Down in the Lab

Standard Recordings SR-72 7", released October 1992 (U.S.)

Black vinyl. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies. There was a slight sleeve variation that I noticed: some sleeves were on bluish paper and others were on yellowish paper. A pinkish sleeve also surfaced in 2019. That one is pretty uncommon.

There was also a rumor of a pink vinyl version of this record floating around. I got ahold of the former owner of Standard Recordings and got some clarity on this release. First off, he refuted the pink vinyl rumors. They were all black. Second, there were roughly equal numbers of blue and yellow sleeves. Third, there was no rhyme or reason to the which I mean that the blue and yellow paper was used randomly, so there was no pattern to the numbering. This exchange was long before the pinkish sleeve surfaced, so I don't know the story there, but it's clear there were fewer of those.
