stefansonic has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
This is my first ever post on this board, please bear with me if this has been asked beofre...

I just recently scored a test press 7" for the Overkill Your Idols 7" and was wondering how many test presses were made for this record?

My record is just a plain blank white label with a large 45 center hole.

Thanks in advance...

So, he's new to the board, but definitely not to your site, I guess .
Good thing I added that "If" , I feel less stupid .

Thanks to everyone who replied...
I did try emailing Chris Lawrence before I posted here, but the emails were returned...I did contribute to the discography in the past, I went to look if I was still in the thank you's but I was removed, that's ok...I don't really collect SY anymore because I thought I had everything except test presses, so to be able to find an Overkill Your Idols 7" test I thought was awsome.

While were on the subject, I have 2 copies of Halloween II 12": 1 signed and numbered (75/100) and 1 unsigned & un-numbered. so now: how many are there unsigned and un-numbered? and what about the Flower 7" and the Flower/Satin Is Boring? how many of each of those were made? Just curious if anyone knows for sure...

Thanks again...

I'm going to go through every entry, and whatever is missing I'll either send you scans or photos. I see the Flower release needs an update, the 7", 12", all of it...
