pay to cum!

It's hard to believe that this is the first time that this record is seeing it's first official reissue in more than 30 years. After a few bootlegs since 1980, this is the 2011 reissue of the Bad Brains single, "Pay To Cum!". This is red vinyl of 100 pressed by Bad Brains Records. 100 copies each were also pressed on green vinyl and gold vinyl. I think a far less limited amount was also pressed on back. I contemplated grabbing copies of the other colourways, but I only really need one.
The original of this 7" is arguably the most sought after of the entire BB catalogue. I don't even rate this actual song as high as alot of the songs on the LP, or even some of the originals on "Rock For Light", but in a historical sense of the word, I suppose this is the BB classic.
Having never actually seen the OG copy of this, I can't really tell you how true to the original this reissue is in terms of layout. I mean obviously the cover is the same...
...but I suspect that this insert is a new look for this version.
Someone sell me "Rock For Light". Did I say that already?
