Additional notes:

This is the main black repress also in a thin sleeve much like the original white pressing. Some copies seem to lack the Dark Entries (Demo) track, but this is probably just an error pressing and does not seem to be very common. Overall, the black reissues in thin sleeves are all fairly rare.

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.”
