Split Bootleg LP w/ the Misfits

Radio and TV Broadcasts from the UK 1995, released 1997

Radio and TV Broadcasts from the UK 1995 Repress, released 2009

This contains exactly the same recordings as the last entry...this one just has a 1981 Misfits set on the flip side. Also limited to 300 copies, with a plain black sleeve and hand-numbered insert. I have seen this record sell for a lot of money. Must be the Misfits collectors getting in on it. Of course, this was the one I didn't buy when I had the chance, since I already had all of the tracks on multiple other releases. These were all on white vinyl (as far as I know). However, I came across a test pressing of it on black vinyl. The inserts (the two on separate pieces of paper) are taped to the inner sleeve, and the 300 is crossed out and replaced with a number out of 15. If it were just the inserts that were altered, I would be skeptical, but the fact that it is on a different color of vinyl tells me that it is a legit test pressing. It also seems there was an additional pressing of this record. Several copies started to surface with different inserts. This pressing also appears to be of 300 , and is also numbered (though, of course, rule number one of dealing with bootlegs is don't trust bootleggers...). This pressing caused the value of the original pressing to drop considerably. The new Rocket insert steals some of the artwork from the RFTC album, which was released two years after the initial pressing of this boot.
