The final non-compilation full-length record from Rocket from the Crypt. This is a very good album, though I think I found it slightly disappointing at the time. The only single from this record, "I'm Not Invisible," came out prior to the album's release, and it was so good that it set my expectations for the rest of the album unrealistically high. Still a great one. The vinyl was all black, and was quite easy to find for a long time. However, as was the case with Group Sounds, the record started becoming slightly more scarce, and the price rose accordingly until reissues happened.

Vagrant re-pressed Live from Camp X-ray for Record Store Day 2013, this time on orange splatter vinyl. The reissue was limited to 500 copies, and was a tough find on and after Record Store Day. Then, in 2016, Vagrant pressed two mor variants: clear with black and orange splatter and white with black splatter. Both of those seem to still be available in Vagrant's store at Kingsroad Merch, but they are somewhat uncommon elsewhere.

Then there was this weird bootleg...a European "promo" version of Live from Camp X-ray appeared in 2013 or so. It turned out to be a fake, but I'm including it here for completeness. I've just always found it strange...of all records, why bootleg this one? That's the record collecting equivalent of counterfeiting a $5 bill.
