Originally released in March 1988 on the British independent record label 4AD.
Re-released in the U.S. by Elektra Records in 1992.
Does that later Elektra release have anything on the cover, like does it say “Elektra”, that distinguishes it from the original?
I got a copy at a garage sale that says 4AD on the back. I’m hoping it’s a first release.
Discogs.comis a great source for figuring out this sort of thing. Here’s the list of all Surfer Rosa releases with details on what info is on the label and Cat #.
BD, you rawk. That’s a lot of information!
Unfortunately (for me) it’s a re-issue. But still quite cool.
