DESCRIPTION: This is a rare, mint-condition copy of the German version of the 1st pressing of Minor Threat's 12" EP (Dischord No. 12). This 12" EP combined Minor Threat's two 7" EPs from 1981 (Dischord No. 3 and No. 5). There were 3 different versions, all pressed in France, and all released simultaneously in 1984: This is the German version, with Warm Gray, Black and Yellow inks, and it admonishes people to "Zahl Nicht Mehr Als DM12" (Pay No More Than 12 Deutschmarks.) It's crazy to remember that when this LP came out, Germany was still divided, and the Berlin Wall would not come down for another 6 years. The American version was printed with Red, Black, and Silver (later Gray) inks, and says "$4.00 Postpaid from Dischord". British version was printed with Dark Blue, Black, and Light Blue inks, and says "Pay No More Than £2.50." The British and German versions were much more limited and were made only in these color combinations (and as far as I know, only printed once). This Warm Gray/Yellow combination is one of my favorites. The American version, by contrast, has been in print since 1984, and there have been various color combinations tried out over the years. Included is lyric sheet with photos of band, printed on glossy paper stock.
CONDITION / PROVENANCE: Record is in absolutely pristine condition. It has been kept in a plastic sleeve away from light and dust for the last 30 years. Record has never been played. This record is unconditionally guaranteed to be original, from 1984. It comes from my (Jeff Nelson - Minor Threat/Dischord Records) punk archives, which are being downsized after continuing to be described variously as "too big" and "insane" or containing "more than my potential kids or grandkids will ever want." Please see my auction for lots of other punk/hardcore flyers and records as well as other jetsam I'll be putting up for sale......
