I believe the record 'bags' referred to on Passions is simply a reference to the actual card sleeve colour - there were no bags as such.
I had all the 12POPDJ variants and they look like this:

Suedehead was the fanciest of the bunch:

Well not just passions, but there is a note on Discogs Interesting Drug 12" I screen shotted it. What do you think, crazy I know.... View attachment 54839
I believe bag is being used instead of sleeve.
I've never seen any Shoplifters-style bag for any of those (not to mention the facts fit the sleeve colour too) and I think it's misused terminology more than anything else.
Happy to be wrong.

(looking on the Hoffman forums - it appears bag and sleeve are interchangeable terms and bag is often used to denote a 'sleeve' without a spine).
