NOTES:
Promo only LP, issued in die-cut card sleeve with white paper inner-sleeve and 10.5″ by 9.5″ Toy’s Factory card signed by Jon Spencer, Judah Bauer and Russell Simins.

This was issued on CD in Japan (with alternate running order and alternate versions of some songs) but was not commercially available on vinyl.

A different version of New Year (Rough) titled New Year (Destroyer) was issued in the UK on a split single with Barry Adamson.

The labels feature images taken from the Talk About The Blues video, identical to those used on Ura Acme (LP, JAPAN) and Talk About The Blues (7″, UK).

There were different versions of this album released in the US (Xtra Acme USA) and UK (Acme Plus).
