This copy has a handwritten label with partially ripped sticker. The inner ring of the same side has the inscription ‘!!Youthenasia!!’ which can partly be seen on the bottom right corner of the photograph.

Note the track error on the letter for ‘The Best Man’s Fool’.

Wow, I knew they were label mates, but they toured together? I’m trying to imagine what that might have been like, given each of the group’s dynamics. I do like the La’s music, mind.

Playing with the La’s was an incredible experience. Lee would give us advice about the music business, talk imaginative drivel (“the Merseyssippi, la!”), play an infinite riff on his acoustic, and smoke a heroic amount of weed. We watched from the wings every night, agog.

Wow, thanks for your insight, Paul! I’m giddy with relief 🙂
