The original edition was hand-distributed in a few copies in 1976, it was also the first Industrial Records catalog number: IR0001.
The cassette was titled that way ironically at the TG very beginning.

Later re-issued by somebody called V.A.T. along with "Best of... Volume I" and the first 10 IRC live cassettes with an identical cover. The V.A.T. cassettes, released sometime in the early 90s, vary from the original cassettes in that they are a clear plastic cassette with the words "this is a V.A.T. re-release" on the B side label of the cassette. Pressing numbers are unknown but a lot more of them were printed than the original IRC cassettes.
