mud shark mz 4801 - 4812: released april 1981 - 1000 pressed
from "On Tour With The Evil Prince":
"This 12 LP boxe set was pressed in April 1981 & came with a 16-page booklet. Each LP has its own title. There were 1,000 box sets pressed but 565 were seized in one raid & other legal problems netted an additional 100. There were also 25 "Silver Edition" sets pressed with each LP in a silver jacket with 11" x 11" black & white slicks on the front & back & had deluxe bogus labels. Re-released (regular box set) as an import on "fz 4801-12) with a black & white laminated cover with silver printing & some without the booklet. The source for this 1984 set was the original LPs so the sound quality is inferior to the original set. This box set is sometimes refered to as the "Bogus Box #2"."
