Recording and release
There was the standard black vinyl pressing of the album, in 7" & 12". It also had a gold and a clear pressing (both rare), plus some misprinted version's, all only numbering in the 100s. It was released on the now defunct label 'Inner Journey Records'.
The 12" version had the extra track "Pile Driver", which would be released again on the EP Impetus, the reissue of Passive Restraints, their second EP. The tracks form the EP were eventually reissued on the compilation album, Pitchfork & Lost Needles, which released in 2005, making it nearly 15 years since most people had heard the songs.
The eponymous debut from Clutch was released in the beginnings of the Stoner Rock era of Sleep and Kyuss, but is considered a Punk/Heavy Metal/Hardcore album, as this is what the band members identified more with at the time.
It was not able to be purchased for some years, except as a second hand EP. Except in live sets by the band, the tracks were not heard by most fans until 1999, with its reissue on CD.It would also be the first of many recordings done with Larry "Uncle Punchy" Packer as the producer/engineer over the course of the band's career.
