Last month, Bridge Nine quietly posted a pre-order for something they called "Warehouse Editions" of five of their older releases. They were:
Champion - Promises Kept lp No Warning - Ill Blood lp Have Heart - You Can't Go Home Again 7" Outbreak - You Make Us Sick 7" Death By Dishonor/Black Friday '29 split 7"
Basically this was leftover vinyl and some inserts without covers found in the warehouse. They made up special covers for the releases and voila, instant collectors items. The cool part was they were sold for regular prices.I guess it was intended for people who didn't have them the first time around. Sorry about that.
The pre-order came and went really fast for the first three titles. A few hours and that was it. The Outbreak and DBD/BF 29 hung around for close to a week and then were gone too. If I wasn't on the Vinyl Collective message board at the right time (during work hours of course), I would have missed out. As it is, I got lucky (or I should have a better work ethic) and was able to pick up the three titles I wanted right away. Looking back, I probably should have picked up the other two as they were $5 a piece. Oh well. Still stoked!
Champion - Promises Kept. Out of 205. I got the final show press vinyl. Way darker "yellow" than my other original copy.
No Warning - Ill Blood. Out of 141. Black vinyl originally out of 600. No insert with this one.
Have Heart - You Can't Go Home Again. Out of 95. Yellow vinyl originally out of 1000. No insert.
Welcome to my blog on collecting hardcore and punk rock vinyl. By no means do I claim to have the biggest, best or most complete collection.
I just love collecting hardcore/punk records and have since I was a teenager. I now have a wife and two kids, a mortgage, car payments and a downtown suit and tie guy job. Still, when I can I try to keep up with the hardcore scene, the bands and labels that keep me feeling young when everything else in this world tells me I am not! I will try to post every few days and hopefully like minded people can have fun with the posts and with your participation, start some discussions. Thanks for looking and tell all your friends!
