Re-released 1988 on Destiny records and in 1991 on We Bite records
both in Germany. The Destiny release was 33RPM. We Bite faithfully
reproduced the original on Stage Dive, which was 45RPM. 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 1 thousand
and no repressings except to say the repressings came from Destiny
and We Bite in Germany. 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. I don't
know if that is true. 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.  d stewart punksnax at hot mael
