Rat Music For Rat People 12"

I've been wanting to get this for a while now, but most of the ones on Ebay had been a bit too expensive. I have been doing quite a bit more work recently, so I decided to just go ahead and buy it, it's only money right? 

In case you were wondering, this is a 1982 live collaboration album of many of the greatest punk bands, which you can see from the cover. For em the high point is the song "You" by the Bad Brains. It's the same song as "Don't Bother Me" from Black Dots, but is just such a great version of an already fantastic song.
This is probably the oldest record that I currently own, and seeing that it is 30 years old this year, it is in pretty great shape. As you can probably make out in the above photo, there are a few tears and a bit of wear, but overall it has stood the test of time well. Best of all it plays perfectly, and that is really what matters most.
On the reverse of the cover is a great rat illustration. The rat at the top seems to be holding a hypnotic medallion, which does tie in nicely with the paragraph about "Control through time and patterns".
