Full-length LP #3. Brilliant record. The color vinyl for this one was a dark blood-red. The red one was a later pressing (1990), possibly released in conjunction with the Anthology set. It is quite difficult to find.
As with the other SST albums, it seems there was a recent re-pressing. There are probably at least three distinct black vinyl versions, but the differences are subtle. The original batch was a lighter-weight pressing and had a "translucent black" (or brown, if you like) appearance when held up to the light. This was common in 80s and early 90s records. I don't know if any of the later pressings had this quality as I don't own them. I know there was one subtle sleeve variant that had a yellow bar code on the back. For all intents and purposes (as far as value in concerned, anyway), you can treat the various black pressings as one.
