Stars and stripes-Shaved for battle LP

Famous for featuring Jack Kelly of Slapshot fame, this album came out in 1989 and I can remember not bothering with it because it seemed too overly patriotic which is daft really considering at the time I was (and still am) a HUGE warzone fan. Released on the aptly titled Patriot records this has become a bit of a collectors item due to the presence of Mr Kelly and with collectors of Boston HC although is more straight up oi!!, still this is a dam good record. Something that took over twenty years to realise.
 The chance to own this came up so I thought why not. This goes for a bit these days and managed to get it at a  fairly reasonable price and avoided the ebay hassle. Surely a reissue would be appropriate sometime.
