Big Black - Lungs EP (Ruthless Records)

$ 50.00



LIMITED QUANTITY AVAILABLE - Original 1982 Ruthless Records vinyl pressing of the Lungs EP by Big Black. 

Discovered in the basement of Electrical Audio (the recording studio owned and operated by Steve Albini), these vinyl EPs are part of the original (1st and only) 1982 pressing of 1500 on Ruthless Records.

The record jackets are the original, 1982, no-spine (12" single style),  Ruthless Records jackets.  The vinyl is the original 1982 vinyl pressing with Ruthless Records labels.  The inserts are recently printed Touch and Go Records versions. They are not from the 1982 Ruthless Records insert printing, but the insert content and layout is 99% the same.   

Each Ruthless Records version of the Lungs EP available here on the Touch and Go webstore includes a letter of authenticity signed by Steve Albini himself (see above photo of Steve's letter). 

These vinyl EPs and their original jackets have been in storage at Steve's house and then at Electrical Audio for 36 years. The condition of the jackets show varying degrees of wear.  The two examples shown here are considered to be the worst condition of the lot. Most are better.  Each original EP jacket will display some imperfections, but none are any worse than the ones pictured below. Please scroll through all of the below photos.
