Of the original edition of 2500 LPs, eight were 'defective' or damaged. These eight were numbered and signed by Buzz, Dale and Mark and came with a note from the label: "Congrats and Thanks from The Melvins and Amrep for stocking and supporting real rock. Buzz Dale and Mark scribed upon only 8 copies Honky. Why eight? Because thats how many defecto slabs emerged in the limited run of 2500. So the value is more along the sentiment lines, a graphed hello from the band that can grace the walls of the shop or snugly replace the opera window of your '73 LTD. Enjoy and thank you PHB. MELVINS honky signed LP x OF 8."
