Liner Notes

  • Oi-

Well, here it is- the second Slap A Ham release. Hooray! Most of the responses from the first flexi were extremely positive (no, not like youth of today). I'm learning alot and making lots of friends and blah blah blah blah... and all the rest of that cheezy, tear-jerking schmaltz. Basically, the label does take up most, if not all, of my limited spare time, but so far it has been worth it. No, not really. Well, o.k.; maybe a bit. I guess I'm obligated to put the following disclaimer on this here flexi- Hey dummy! This is a flexi! If you play it a zillion times over, it may just wear out! So make a tape or something just in case!

  • Actually, I haven't gotten any complaints yet about flexis wearing out, but I've heard tales of other flexis skipping after repeated plays. There's a copy of the first Slap A Ham flexi that I've played about 70 times and it still plays like a charm. But, then again, that might be the exception instead of the rule. Play it safe-- make a tape in case this floppy slab goes flat one day. Love + Kisses, Chris :P



I distroed a small amount (13 copies to be exact) of the Your Blessened 8" flexi and Chris Dodge who ran Slap-a-Ham included in the 13, 1 copy that had 1st edition vinyl (clear) but second press cover (blue), he said he had some leftover vinyl from the 1st edition. Mine is numbered #157. I have #193 of 2nd edition and it's normal so I don't know if that means there is "around" 170 like this or not.

Nos.100, 122, 178 and 179 of the second press (blue) sleeve contain 1st edition vinyl (clear), supporting what Brian Gauze writes above. I also have a second press (blue sleeve) numbered #1009/1000 with 3rd edition (red) vinyl.
