You Are Not the Boss of Me!

eMpTy MTR 359 LP/CD, released 1997 (U.S.)

Crackle 003 CD, released 1997 (UK)

Pizza of Death HWCY-5 CD, released 1997 (Japan)

This is easily my favorite Sicko album. It is the most complete album, and the one I keep going back to when I am in the mood to listen to them. Almost every track on here is worth your time. Released on CD in Japan on A Pizza of Death Records (one of my all-time favorite label names), and in the UK on Crackle. Each of those versions had its own bonus track: The Japanese version had a cover of the Husking Bee song "8.6" - that one was only available on this disc until a Husking Bee tribute CD was released in 2007 (it's called Liv-Ing Husking Bee-Ing Tribute To Husking Bee, if you care to track that down). The UK version had a cover of the Misfits' "Astro Zombies." That track remains exclusive to that disc. Both are amazing covers, so track them down if you can.

At this point, the prices on both have come way down - you will probably spend more on postage than the CDs. Still...worth it. The only vinyl version was the U.S. one on black vinyl - it is not terribly tough to find, but it can be slightly difficult at times.
