Re-released 1988 on Destiny records and in 1991 on We Bite records
both in Germany and both 33RPM. Some of the We Bite ones were on
Green vinyl. The original ones on Stagedive were black vinyl and 45
RPM and I pressed only 1k. The repressings came from Destiny and
We Bite. I had heard that Destiny would send the mastertapes to
England to be pressed by Southern Studios, who would press a few
thousand more copies to sell themselves. And so it became a
never-ending struggle to find out just exactly how many Putsch
albums were manufactured and sold. Too many cooks spoil the pot.
