Additional notes:

This is the most common black repress, featuring a much thicker sleeve than the original (this one also has a plain white spine) and an inner white sleeve.┬áBe careful – there is a newer bootleg version of this single (made in 2015) that looks identical to this version. The second variation may represent a pressing from around 1988 to coincide with the various color represses, but concrete information on this is currently lacking.

Though the song names Bela Lugosi, the front cover image is based on a still from a film that did not star Lugosi, “The Sorrows of Satan.” Likewise, the back cover image is from another film that does not feature Lugosi, “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.”
