Asian Man AM180 LP, released 2009 (U.S.)

Lots of Slackers songs done dub-style. I don't get dub...I don't know why. Perhaps it is my complete lack of interest in the illicit substances that might be prerequisites for being able to enjoy dub. This one was released on CD in many different countries with a variety of album artwork. It did not appear on vinyl until 2009, when Asian Man got ahold of it (which resulted in dramatically different artwork - the yellow one above). It was on black vinyl - the price of which has kind of skyrocketed in recent years.
