Because this Glenn Danzig solo single is collected by almost all Misfits collectors, it is included in this discography.

For the 2nd pressing, Glenn colored purple eye shadow on the center labels of some of the copies.

There were 3 test press copies for the 2nd pressing in 1983: one went to Glenn, one went to Steve Zing, and one went to Eerie Von. Glenn later sold his copy to Bleecker Bob's in Los Angeles, where it was purchased by Johnathan Grimm. Eerie's copy, now owned by Elizabeth Bouras, has a black and white copy of the regular sleeve, whereas others have no sleeve.

At least one purple vinyl copy was issued missing a center label.

The center labels vary greatly in color. Some of the orange labels look pinkish and the grey center labels range from almost white to dark grey.
Although most discographies list 3000 grey label copies and 7000 red/orange label copies, the grey vinyl copies ar
e extremely more common. The 2nd pressing was partially distributed by Caroline Records. Glenn had originally planned to include the 1986 reissues in the proposed box set of 4 singles he mentioned in 1986 interviews with Thrasher and Black Market.

The record label sticker on side 1 has the band logo, song listings for both sides, and copyright information for the EP. The label sticker on side 2 has a picture of the Crimson Ghost.

This EP was supposed to be released to promote the UK tour of 1979, but the record sleeve had not been finished by the time they arrived in the UK.
In fact, Glenn came up with the title and scribbled it on a piece of paper after seeing signs that said "Beware Bollards" during the tour of England.

The EP was finally released after The Misfits returned to the United States. Many discographies list the pressing of this EP at 15,000 copies.
The scarcity of this item among collectors makes 1500 a much more
reasonable number.
