Label:			Happy Moose Records, HMS 8687
Date Recorded:		Oct 1980-May 1982
Release Date:		1985
Recording Quality:	A-
Notes:			Currently selling for about $6-10, considerably
			cheaper than the real thing.  Sleeve has a good
			picture, bad graphics and can be either white or

			surprising frequency, and might even still be in
			print.

Recording Quality:	B+

Notes:			Different edit (tracks rearranged; "Folklore" added,

Title:			Makes No Sense At All
Medium:			12" LP
Label:			HDD85 [Dutch import]
Date Recorded:		13 Sep 1985
			08 Sep 1985*
Release Date:		1986?
Location:		Vikateateret, Oslo, Norway
			Burgerweeshuis, Deventer, Holland*
Recording Quality:	B+
Time:			45 min
Notes:			Cover erroneously lists "Terms Of Psychic Warfare"
			instead of "Powerline."  From the sound of it,
			"Books About UFOs," also advertised, has been
			edited out.  According to Hot Wacks 14, the Oslo
			tracks are in stereo, but this is not readily
			apparent.  Cassette copies of this are easy to
			find; vinyl more difficult.  See also "Radio
			Appearances."

Date Recorded:		09 Jun 1987
Release Date:		1988
Location:		Zeche, Bochum FRG
Recording Quality:	B
Time:			45 min
Notes:			Of all the bootleg albums, this one wins the prize for
			having the least correlation between the track list on
			the cover and the actual tracks on the record.  The
			album, like all the bootleg vinyl, has become rather
			scarce.

Title:			Drug Party
Medium:			7" EP
Label:			Agressive Buddhist Records
Catalog Number:	        AB33079
Date Recorded:		See notes
Release Date:		1990
Location:		Various/studio
Recording Quality:	B
Time:			15 min
Notes:			Limited, numbered edition of 500 copies. Tracks
			were taken from tapes circulating among traders:
			"Do You Remember?" from 1980 "Savage Young Du"
			demo; "Drug Party" #1 from 21 Jun 1985 Patio
			(Indianapolis) show; "Drug Party" #2 from 10 Mar
			1984 Vig's (Madison) show; "We Wish You A Merry
			Christmas" from Dec 1986 WB promo. "Do You
                        Remember?" has since been released in much more
                        listenable form on Everything Falls Apart And
                        More. Artwork sleeve is heavy paper, single sheet
			folded once. Plain white inner sleeve. This issue
			came with a paper insert, as shown on the artwork
			page. Vinyl is a small-hole 7", recorded at 33 RPM.
			There are inscriptions etched in the runout areas of
			each side: (A) "What is it?" (with quotes) has been
			scratched out and replaced with "What it is" (no
			quotes); (B) "Spot I hear a radio."

Title:			Drug Party
Label:			None
Catalog Number:         None
Date Recorded:		See above
Release Date:		1991?
Location:		See above
Recording Quality:	B-
Time:			15 min
Notes:			Italian red vinyl counterfeit of US boot.  No insert
			Some copies came with white inner sleeve.  45 RPM.
			Careful examination of 7-11 photo on sleeve shows it
			clearly to be a 2nd-generation halftone (dots are
			clumped). See comparison images on artwork page.
			Blue graphics are slightly misregistered.  Label is
			solid black and entirely blank. Runout inscriptions
			merely read "H-DU A" and "H-DU B". Serial numbers
			appear to have been handwritten after the sleeve
			was printed, and research confirms that they differ
			from copy to copy. No confirmation that the pressing
			ran to 500 copies as indicated on the sleeve.

Release Date:		1990
Recording Quality:	A-
Time:			33 min
Notes:			UK boot of out-of-print Reflex D LP with the first
			two singles thrown in.  Album cover is a pretty good
			counterfeit, but the extra tracks listed on the back
			are a dead giveaway.  Poorly photocopied lyric sheet
			from EFA included.  "Statues" and "Amusement" are
			listed in reverse order on the sleeve.  "What Do I
			Want?" is listed as the second-to-last track but does
			not appear on the record.

Medium:			CD
Label:			Unknown
Date Recorded:		14 May 1989
Release Date:		Unknown
Recording Quality:	Unknown
Time:			45 min
Notes:			Existence of this item is not confirmed.  It has been
			described as a recording of a 1989 New York City
			performance, but a tape purportedly made from it is
			clearly heard to be the Cabaret Metro show from the
			above date, minus "Brasilia."  On the tape version
			at least, the last song is truncated.  It's conceivable
			that the WXRT tape was aired in New York, which could
			possibly account for the confusion in provenance.

Title:			Everything Falls Apart
Medium:			12" LP
Label:			Reflex [bogus]
Date Recorded:		1980, 1982
Release Date:		1991?
Recording Quality:	Unknown
Time:			Unknown
Notes:			German counterfeit.  This may be Whyno 123464
			listed above, but that number appears nowhere on
			the sleeve or record.  In fact the sleeve is a
			near-perfect copy of the original, except that it
			is printed in solid black on white instead of black
			and green on white.  The record itself bears a blank
			label with only "HD-1" and "HD-2" inscribed in the
			runout areas of the respective sides.  Price tag
			on the sleeve reads DM 24.50 (about $16.90 US).

Date Recorded:		28 Aug 1985
Release Date:		Spring 1992
Location:		1st Ave, Minneapolis
Recording Quality:	A-
Time:			50:47
Notes:			Dutch CD boot made from a clean vinyl copy of the
			Lyndales Burning 12" described above.  "Folklore"
			is not listed on the sleeve but appears as part of
			track 6.  "Celebrated Summer" is listed but is not
			present.  Inlay artwork (a concert shot with Bob
			Mould prominent in the foreground) appears to be a
			screen capture from the Makes No Sense... video.

Recording Quality:	A-
Time:			50:48
Notes:			Alternately titled German boot of Lyndales Burning.
			Has different picture insert, taken from Warehouse
			photo sessions, and different artwork on disk itself.
			Otherwise the two appear to be the same, as the number
			on the disk is the same in both cases and "I Apologize"
			skips in the same spot on both CDs.  The individual
			track times vary slightly.  The track anomalies cited
			above regarding "Celebrated Summer" and "Folklore"
			are present in this case as well.  If that's not
			sufficient evidence, both disks bear the holographic
			number WIZARD A 0321

Medium:			Comp CD
Label:			Fuckin' Bastards No. 423
Date Recorded:		Oct 1980
Release Date:		1992
Recording Quality:	B
Notes:			This is a compilation of early punk singles made
			from scratchy 7"s.  The Hüsker songs, inexplicably
			identified as "Shut Up And Kill Yourself" and "Do
			The Body Strut," are listed as track 4 on the inlay
			but play as tracks 7 and 8.  The disk itself was
			manufactured in Korea according to the holographic
			inscription, which also bears the number "HAC-9217 
			T102-14301."  The Amusement 7" sleeve is one of 4
			pictured on the inlay.

Location:		BBC studios (London?)
Recording Quality:	A
Time:			
Notes:			Another Mark Corner effort.  Taken from BBC Mark
			Goodier sessions (first air 24 Aug 1992).  "Where
			Diamonds Are Halos" is erroneously listed as "Every
			Little Bit Helps" on the picture sleeve.  Every
			track except "Hoover Dam" is available legitimately
			elsewhere.  There is some uncertainty about the total
			number of tracks of tracks actually recorded for the
			Goodier Sessions, as well as the number of airings.
			Selling price ranges from $4-10.

Time:			51 min
Notes:			Here it is again.  Could this be a 12" made from
			the CD that was made from another 12"?  "Folklore"
			is again omitted, but the extraneous listing of
			"Celebrated Summer" is not present.  Nice color
			photo of band on cover, taken from Warehouse

Release Date:		Early 1993
Location:		1st Ave, Minneapolis
Recording Quality:	B+
Time:			50:47
Notes:			Matrix number shown only on disk, not on inlay.
			"Folklore" appended to track 6 as with the
			Lynndale clones above.  This disk bears a different
			holographic number, however (HUDUCD93).
			What's a bootlegger to do when the same old Spin show
			has been repackaged so many times that everyone who's
			ever going to buy a copy already has one?  Why not
			stoop to deliberate deception?  As a possibly
			intentional clue to this item's bogosity, the inlay
			photo depicts a street in what looks suspiciously
			more like Manhattan than Boston.  Caveat emptor.

			CD was "reissued" in 1997 with different artwork.

Title:			Live in Europe
Medium:			CD
Label:			Handmade Music HMM CD 424 [FRG release]
Date Recorded:		04 Dec 1989
Release Date:		1993?
Recording Quality:	A
Time:			69:30 min
Notes:			Recording of concert at U4 in Vienna that was
			broadcast a day or two later on Die Musicbox, a
			program on FM station Ö3 that showcased music by
			indie/underground artists of the day. Hence the
			statement in the liner notes that the set was
			"Recorded live in the studio during 1989 for German
			radio" is somewhat off the mark. It's also pretty
			obvious from the audience noise level that the
			recording was made in a good-sized venue. Fine-
			sounding and nicely-packaged CD with full-color
			front and back inlays featuring photos of Bob Mould.

Date Recorded:		04 Dec 1989
Release Date:		1993?
Recording Quality:	A
Time:			69:20 min
Notes:			This is identical in program content to the Live In
			Europe boot.  Packaging is different:  front inlay
			is the Workbook cover with "Alive on Radio"
			stamped in gold or black on it; back inlay features
			the Black Sheets back cover photo of Bob looking
			very punk in shorts and Docs; disk artwork is also
			different, bearing the title "Live over Europe."
			The first two songs are combined onto a single
			track, and the first six and a half minutes of the
			track labeled "All Those People Know" is a jammy
			continuation of "Whichever Way The Wind Blows"
			followed by a pre-encore interlude before the named
			song begins.  Recording qquality is pretty good, but
			Bob's voice is a bit hoarse.

Release Date:		1993?
Location:		Pavilion, Brighton UK
Recording Quality:	B
Time:			55 min
Notes:                  Album sleeve proclaims "For radio station use only.
                        Not for sale."  Rationale for the title is unclear,
                        but may be an attempt to pass the item off as a
                        legitimate radio show (it's the name of a syndicated
                        US radio program).  Record label features a
                        reproduction of part of a UK 1-kg sugar package.
                        The recording sounds as if it's been made from an
                        audience tape, and the pressing itself is a bit
                        noisy.  "After All The Roads Have Led To Nowhere,"
                        "Frustration," "Tilted," "Sapphire Capital" and "The
                        Beer Commercial" are all listed on the cover as
                        "unknown."  "Anyone" is listed as "If I Didn't Want
                        You" and "Clownmaster" is listed as "Instrumental."
                        Running time is about 55 minutes, as the opening few
                        songs of the set are not present.  Front cover is black
                        with small (~1.5" square) negative photo of Bob Mould
                        with guitar in the center; title appears beneath the
                        photo.  Back cover features a vertically stretched
                        photo of the three band members and the track listing
                        (with errors as described above).  The sleeve notes
                        say only that this is a live recording from the 1992
                        UK tour, but direct comparison to a tape of the
                        Pavilion show provides conclusive evidence of the
                        date/venue.

Format:			CD
Label:			Kiss the Stone
Catalog Number:		KTS193
Date Recorded:		22 Jul 1992
Release Date:		Sep 1993
Location:		Cabaret Metro, Chicago
Recording Quality:	A/A-
Time:			58:52
Notes:                  This is a nicely-packaged product with slick artwork
			characteristic of KTS.  There's a photo of Bob on the
			disk itself.  The 8-page insert booklet includes the
			same photo, a photo of the entire band, a KTS catalog,
			and off-the-wall liner notes in slightly fractured
			English by "Professor Stone."  A recording of the WXRT
			FM broadcast of this show was apparently used as the
			master for this disk, as there are occasional RFI-type
			glitches.  As usual, there are plenty of mistakes in
			the track listing:  "The Act We Act" is listed as
			"The Act We Follow;" "Running Out Of Time" is "Time;"
			"Where Diamonds Are Halos" is "Every Little Bit
			Helps;" "Armenia City In The Sky" is simply "Armenia
			City" and a single track containing "Slick,"
			"Clownmaster" and "Tilted" is listed as "Medley:
			Slick/Come Around."  This CD sells in the US for
			$20-25.

Notes:			Same as Holy 005 but with tracks shuffled around a

			includes an interview with Bob Mould.
			"Celebrated Summer" is listed as "Sons Of Bitches."
			"If I Told You" and "Folklore" are combined into a
			single track.  Beginning of "I Don't Know For Sure"
			is missing and the track fades in.  Vinyl pops
			audible.

Title:			Whatever Makes You Happy
Format:			CD5
Label:			Hawk
Catalog Number:		HAWK005 [Italy]
Date Recorded:		20 Feb 1992
Release Date:		Oct 1993
Location:		40 Watt Club, Athens GA
Recording Quality:	B+
Time:			68:21
Notes:                  First Sugar show ever.  Mastered from a low-gen
			copy of the audience tape Chuck Erb recorded on his
			DAT Walkman, complete with shifting soundstage and
			somewhat brittle midrange.  The guitar is very low
			in the mix, but that was the fault of the soundboard
			guy.  Five songs were cut out between "Clownmaster"
			and "The Slim" due to CD time limitations.  Omitted
			are "The Right Words" and the first four songs of
			Beaster (then simply called 1-2-3-4 and referred
			to collectively as the "Jesus Christ Cycle").
			Front inlay features a band photo from the time of
			the "Helpless" promo video and back inlay has a
			photo taken during the spring 1993 tour.  Tracks
			misidentified on the inlay:  "Clownmaster" is called
			"Beaster" and Mike Nesmith's "The Door Into Summer"
			is called "Penny Whistle Band."  This version of
			"Clownmaster" has lyrics.  CD selling price is in
			the US$20 range.

Title:			Live On The Joan Rivers Show 1987
Medium:			7" single
Label:			Do You Remember? Records
Catalog Number:		DYRR001 [UK?]
Date Recorded:		27 Apr 1987
Release Date:		Nov 1993
Location:		Fox Studios, Hollywood
Recording Quality:	B-
Notes:			Clear red-orange vinyl with black & white picture
			sleeve.  Band photo dates to well before the
			Warehouse era (looks to be from about 1982 or 1983).
			Joan Rivers' intros are present at the start of each
			track, but the interview segment is absent.  Hüsker
			Du is identified on the sleeve, but the label credits
			"Bob Hart-Norton," a typical display of bootlegger
			cutesiness.  Sound quality is strictly lo-fi mono,
			decidedly unpleasant.  Typical price = UK£4-5.

Time:			75:53
Notes:			Unlike Bleeding, which was apparently made from
			an off-the-air recording, the Cabaret Metro segment
			of this CD must have been made from a soundboard
			recording or the WXRT master tape, since it includes
			material not broadcast.  "Man On The Moon" is not
			listed and is piggybacked with "Dum Dum Boys".
			"Lonely Blue Dream" was an impromptu song Bob made
			up in response to a telephone request; the track is
			plagued by speed problems and flutter.  The ULU
			tracks sound as if they came from an audience tape.

			Tracks are taken from the same audience tape as

Catalog Number:		92096 [Luxembourg]
Date Recorded:		14 May 1989
Release Date:		Jan 1994
Credited:	        "Bob--guitar/vocals

                        Tony--bass
                        Chris--guitar"
Recording Quality:	B
Time:			43:57
Notes:			Inlay claims "New York, 1989," but this is the
			Cabaret Metro show that was recorded for broadcast
			on WXRT.  The most obvious indicator (of many) is
			Bob's intro:  "The next one is called 'If You're
			True.'  It's not on the album; please listen to it."
			There may have been a NYC rebroadcast of this, which
			could account for the venue error.  The front inlay
			is blue with an amateurishly-rendered drawing of a
			diver whose helmet has eight hoses attached to it.
			Rear inlay says "all songs written by Bob Mould,"
			a statement whose 89% accuracy is about as close to
			perfection as bootleggers get.  The disk itself is
			inscribed:  "Rocks.  A trademark of ROCKDREAMS
			S.A.R.L Luxembourg" and bears a 1993 copyright. The
			sound is muddy and the speed is off (runs fast).
			For some reason, both "Brasilia" and "See A Little
			Light" were edited out.  Considering that there are
			tapes of this performance that are not only complete
			but much better sounding, this is a disappointing
			effort.  List price is about $25, way too high.

Title:			Now And Zen
Format:			CD5
Label:			Boppin' Buddah Co., Taiwan
Catalog Number:		None
Date Recorded:		Dec 1982, Oct 1983
Release Date:		Jun 1994
Recording Quality:	B-
Time:			58:23
Notes: 			This is an edited version of the tape circulated
			among traders as "Zen Arcade later mixes and
			outtakes."  There are speed problems on the first
			track, there's occasional distortion from signal
			saturation, and the overall sound is extremely
			brittle.  It sounds as if some sort of digital
			processing has been applied in an attempt to reduce
			the tape hiss.  The first "One Step At A Time" is
			omitted from the track listing and the second
			occurrence is mistitled "Monday Will Never Be The
			Same" (this was probably intentional, because it's
			clear that the people behind this had access to an
			accurate track listing).  Grant's untitled piano
			noodling is arbitrarily assigned the title "Granted"
			and his remarks at the end of the song have been
			cut.  Several of the best tracks were left off the
			CD altogether, including the terrific version of
			"Somewhere" with the additional guitar overdub.
			These omissions were almost certainly made to keep
			the total time under 60 minutes to save costs.  The
			holo data on the inner circumference of the disc
			has been deliberately scratched out, but enough
			remains to indicate that this was produced in the
			US.  The packaging is shoddy, monochrome inserts
			with a motif of traditional Chinese art; the inner
			pages are blank.  The disk itself is devoid of
			artwork except for the legend "Side A."  Selling
			price in the Boston area was about $14 at the time
			this was released, but it's long out of print.

Time:			66:28
Notes:                  From soundboard tape.  The liner notes state, "No
                        one knows where [the performance] was recorded, and
                        perhaps this is fitting."  Fitting or not, and
                        notwithstanding a story about this being stolen from
                        the soundboard at an Albany NY show, direct A-B
                        comparison to an audience tape of the Town & Country
                        show confirms the date and venue listed above.  "Hare
                        Krsna" (which, it's almost frightening to note, is
                        actually spelled correctly in the track listing) is
                        a throw-in from the Warner Bros Do You Remember
                        promo CD.  The sound is occasionally muddy and the
                        midrange is a little weak, but overall this is a
                        good-sounding CD.  KTS did a nice job on the
                        silk-screening of the disk artwork, which is a photo
                        of Bob standing with the flying vee.

                        with okay results.  A few tracks are commercially

                        and categorized, along with "Do You Remember," as
                        a Warehouse outtake.  "All Work And No Play" is
                        listed as "Instro" and is the rough mix with no
                        vocal track.  "Misty Modern Days" is also listed as

                        A few other Warehouse titles are butchered.

Notes:                  Sticker on back cover says "Made in Austria."
                        Side one and two track listings reversed.  As with
			the Spin! Disque vinyl boot above, this record
			appears to have been pressed from one of the
			Lynndale-clone boot CDs; as seen before, "Celebrated
			Summer" is erroneously listed and "Folklore" is
			omitted.  No way to date this thing.  Disk labels
			just say "A" and "B" in artsy lettering.

Title:			In A Free Land
Medium:			7" EP (45 RPM)
Label:			None
Date Recorded:		17 Nov 1982
			1980*
Release Date:		2000?
Recording Quality:	B+
Notes:			Counterfeit "limited Edition" vinyl EP that most
			likely used tracks from the 1993 Everything Falls
			Apart And More CD as its source.  Release date is
			a guess, based on an initial sighting in Dec 2000.
			Cover artwork probably scanned in from an original
			(loss of detail apparent), and titles redone on a
			computer in a low-resolution font; New Alliance logo
			obliterated from sleeve, but New Alliance cited in
			lyric insert, which claims a run of 500 copies.
			As a curiosity, this item is worth maybe $5-10 to
			diehard collectors (I paid a lot more on eBay just
			to find out what it was; make no mistake:  it's a
			fake).  It bears some striking similarities to the
			Happy Moose The Early Years bogus reissue (folded
			paper "sleeve" made from the same stock; similarly
			colored labels).  Matrix number in runout area
			scratched out.

Date Recorded:		Feb 1982
Release Date:		2000
Time:			64:28
Notes:                  Homemade compilation of rare 80s punk rock and
			hardcore tracks -- singles, demos, etc  -- by bands
			like Angry Samoans, Big Boys, Diodes, Queers, JFA,
			Effigies, many others.  The Hüsker song, a Zen
			Arcade outtake, sounds pretty good, much cleaner
			than the version on the Now And Zen boot CD.  Very
			nice packaging job, superior to many mass-produced
			boots.

Time:			43 min
Notes:			Nothing new or interesting here.  This is a vinyl
			repressing of the Everything Falls Apart And More
			CD with the tracks rearranged a bit.  Back cover
			says "Alternative Rock Productions, Kopenhagen,
			Denmark" and "Made in the EEC 2002."  Recording
			quality is decent, except that the stereo field
			drifts back and forth annoyingly on some tracks
			and there are multiple glitches/skips on the
			"Statues" track.  Size of the production run is
			unknown.  This copy turned up at a record fair in
			England, and I paid way too much for it on eBay.

Date Recorded:		28 Aug 1985
Release Date:		2004
Location:		1st Ave, Minneapolis
Recording Quality:	B+
Time:			50:47 min
Notes:			Well-disguised CDR posing as a CD, but make no
			mistake:  this thing doesn't meet the red book
			standard.  Nice packaging, though; even the disc
			artwork is beautifully done (probably via inkjet,
			but I'm not going to run hot water over it to find
			out).  This item started showing up on eBay in 2004,
			and has reportedly been seen for sale in record
			stores and at record fairs.  The address on the back
			cover for "Odyssey Records" -- 14 Venus Lane, Boise
			ID 83301 -- is fictitious.  As for content, this
		        is just another copy of the 28 Aug 1985 Minneapolis
			Spin show, obviously cloned from the first Live
			In Boston 1986 boot CD, the only variant with which
			all the track times match exactly.  "(You're So
			Square (Baby I Don't Care)" is present on the
			recording but not listed in the liner notes;
			"Celebrated Summer" is listed but not present (in
			the semi-usual tradition).

Notes:                  Nice, thick-vinyl pressing made from (at best)

			Origin is murky; my copy was bought on eBay ($30)
			from a seller in Greece who says he acquired a few
			of these from a guy in Germany.  There are no clues
			to manufacture on the disc; runout area is blank.
			Packaging is pretty crappy -- photocopied front
			and back, glued to plain white cardboard sleeve.
			The version of "Writer's Cramp" is the faster one.

			a fairly low-generation (cassette?) copy of the
			Zen Arcade "later mixes, outtakes" recordings
			(although one of the CDR versions produced from the
			cassettes, popular items on eBay for a while, might
			well have been used as the source material).  The
			High end is a little muffled and there are frequent
			faint clicking noises (that sound more like digital
			artifacts than flaws in the vinyl), but overall the
			sound is not bad for a bootleg.  Packaging isn't
			exactly sturdy, but the artwork is printed on the
			cardboard outer sleeve (as opposed to a paper
			insert or glue-on).  Inner sleeve is plain white.
			The version of "Somewhere" is the alternate take
			with the extra guitar overdub.  First time on vinyl
			for outtake tracks "Some Kind Of Fun" and "Dozen
			Beats Eleven."  The issuing "label" and matrix
			number, "A Cheapo Disc 001," is etched in the runout
			area.  Other runout inscriptions include:  "TAKE
			THAT SST" (side 1) and "RIP: HAPPY MOOSE, AGRESSIVE
			BUDDHIST, AND RECOMMENDED" (side 2), a reference to
			bootlegger imprints of years gone by.  There's also
			a small personal signature on side 1, semi-legible
			at best and probably meant as a tease (although it
			could say "R. Bryan" or "K. Bryan").  According to
			one eBay seller, the pressing was limited to 300
			numbered copies.  The record is typically priced at
			about $15 US.

Release Date:		Summer 2010
Location:		Studio recordings
Recording Quality:	B
Time:			41:18
Notes:                  The pressing is OK, but the source material is not
			so great.  All this stuff has been in circulation
			among traders for some time but, in accordance with
			the wishes of the band members, never formally
			released.  Whoever put this thing together took
			pains to cover their tracks, even going so far as to
			scratch out the matrix numbers in the runout areas.
			Country of origin (perhaps Germany?) and number of
			copies pressed are unknown.  Sellers in the US and
			Europe are asking upwards of US$30 for this record.

Catalog Number:		Unknown
Date Recorded:		21 Jun 1987
Release Date:		Oct? 2016
Location:		Town & Country, London UK
Recording Quality:	Unknown
Time:			Unknown
Notes:                  Turned up on eBay in October 2016 with an asking 
			price of $180. Described as a "numbered, limited
			edition" on clear vinyl. The sleeve pictured in the
			listing indicates that the specific item for sale is
			#1 of a run of 50. The seller's other (non-Hüsker)
			items are also all #1 or #2 of 50. Conjecture: the
			record was probably cut on a home recording lathe,
			not pressed, and the run was likely far smaller
			than suggested. The initial listing for the Hüsker
			record closed without attracting a buyer. It may or
			may not reappear (stay tuned). The two songs on the
			record were previously bootlegged as the opening
			tracks on the Supernova CD. Seller is located in 
			Greece.
Contents:
			(A) These Important Years
			(B) Charity, Chastity, Prudence And Hope
