This is the original first release from the original pressing plates. Because of this it DOES contain Shadowplay as track six on side B. All re-issues were pressed by the manufacturing company without the knowledge of the original bootlegger. The original pressing plates were either lost or damaged and almost all reissues except a later confirmed clear vinyl version failed to include Track 6 on Side B – “Shadowplay”. This first release is known to sound more powerful with more bass fidelity. A later generation re-recording was likely used in the manufacture of all re-issues that did not include Shadowplay.
This first release pressed on black vinyl.
Labels are blank white with either no writing or hand written labels in German.
Matrix run-off etchings on first edition contain hyphens (Re-issues do not). Sides 1 and 4 are stamped, sides 2 and 3 are hand written.
This first release came in two cover variants:
Version 1: Non glossy cover with a black stripe along the bottom of the front cover and a maximum price notice with a dedication to “Ertl” on the on back cover. (This cover is unique to the first vinyl pressing.)
Version 2: Glossy cover with a black stripe along the bottom of the front cover. There is no maximum price notice and no dedication to “Ertl” on the on back cover. (This cover is the same as that used for the first re-issue from the same manufacturer, but the vinyl in this case is still this same black first pressing.)
