Notes

Test pressing: 1985
8 were made for this release

1st Pressing: 1985
Black vinyl, red logo on the front cover, black and white labels, thin paper lyric sheet (these were printed in Ray’s brother’s high school printing class). Some copies came with a sticker, some had handwritten messages on the lyric sheet. The messages were done by John, Ray or Jordan Cooper.

Later Pressings:
It is impossible to determine how many pressings in total were made. Both John and Ray do not remember exact numbers and chronology. Ray thinks there were anything between 3000 to 5000 records pressed on Positive Force in total. The number of pressings below is assumed and based solely on the differences found in covers/lyric sheets etc. and should be taken as such:

2nd pressing: 1986
Black vinyl, black and white cover, black and white labels, thicker semi-glossy insert.

3rd pressing: 1986/1987
Black vinyl, black and white cover, black and white labels, photocopied insert with different photos.
This was the pressing the band took on their 1987 Break Down The Walls tour with them. It looked exactly like the 2nd one but the inserts this time were photocopied and the photos / layout were different. According to RJ, who along with CIV went on that tour with YOT, in one of the boxes they found around 12 to 20 copies with blank B-side labels. Most likely a pressing plant error. They did some drawings or a cut and paste "art" on most of those and sold them or gave away to friends during the tour.

4th pressing: 1987
Black vinyl, black and white cover, blue and white labels, thicker insert.
This is what most generally consider to be the 2nd pressing but it has to be at least 4th and this is based on absolutely no real facts whatsoever other than the final, gold vinyl pressing had blue labels so it would make sense that this one was done just before.

5th pressing: 1987
100 made on black vinyl for Some Records in NYC. Came with a photocopied, stamped cover and thicker, semi-glossy insert. Vinyl has white labels rubber stamped with one or two different "Some Records" stamps.
47 out of the 100 pressed were hand numbered. Some of the numbered copies were personalized by Duane (Some Records) or the members of the band.

6th pressing: 1987
100 reissued on gold vinyl by Jordan and Ray to trade for toys. Black and white covers, blue and white A label and blank B label. Stamped with Batman stamp on the cover, dust sleeve and blank B-label. Some had written messages on the labels, few were found with different stamps: Dinosaur, Superman etc...
also, some of the gold vinyl is plain clear and some were found with many small black specks in the wax.

Odd version:
Some copies with both blank labels were found. These come on black vinyl with black and white cover and thicker semi-glossy insert so they could be the effect of the pressing plant error for either the 2nd or the 4th pressing. These are sometimes being mis-represented as the test pressings for this release. This is NOT correct. The true test pressings had the pressing plant labels. They were not blank.

Is there anyway to tell a first pressing by the record itself? I have what is believed to be a mint (media) 1st pressing (I was told by the original owner) however the record sleeve has been lost. Any help would be awesome Thank you!

I was just speaking with John Porcelly yesterday, showing him my 7" vinyl I bought at Zed Records when it came out, and he said that mine was from the first pressing. It has a plain black and white, one sided cover, and black and white label. I didn't ask him how many of these were pressed, unfortunately, but I'm sure I could ask him on FB.

This record is soo rare and I think there's no SxE kid out there that would not like to own a copy. But, let me assure you - this is by far the worst YOT release and it sounds even worse than the remixed 12" version. This recording does not have any of the bursting energy and the spirit YOT developed later on albums like "We're Not In This Alone". This is just weak teenie-punk. Save your money for better records - don't believe the hype about this disappointing record.
