The Restless Stranger is generally omitted from the official American Music Club discography; their first album, its existence was consistently disavowed by the bandmembers in press releases, interviews, and the like. Although it is by far the weakest release in the AMC canon, the album does have its merits; while the production and arrangements never gel with Mark Eitzel's songs, there are fleeting moments here which hint at the eclectic brilliance to come.

I remember seeing a first issue(?) with a white back cover with a band photo on the back rather than M.Eitzel solo. Surprised it hasn't been submitted/noticed yet?
Interesting, I just ordered a copy and the one you described is what came in. Know anything more about this?
Cool! I think it may have different labels too, saw one on popsike with white labels and black text which I'm guessing is the same issue that you have.
I have that version, Ill post it!! I've never seen this version with just Mark on the back!!
