Lately, I have been making an effort to try and finish off my Revelation "final" presses collection. I kick myself because it's not like I wasn't around when they were first released in the early 2000's. Hell, I even bought a couple at the time. My copy of Judge's Bringin' It Down on orange is still sealed.
I have a lot of regret when it comes to this collection. At the time I thought owning multiple copies of albums was stupid and I didn't want to waste $12. Wow, $12.
I did a post on the Bold - Speak Out last month, so this time around is Gorilla Biscuits Start Today.
The "final" press for this one was limited to 310 copies on clear red vinyl.
The cover is the one used for later presses with no embossing on the band name or title. Pretty standard insert as well.
This particular copy came partially sealed. The previous owner opened the shrink enough to check on the color. The sticker on the front would have been a giveaway to me, but an unplayed copy is downright awesome. I had no reservations with slicing the shrink wrap up the rest of the seam the second I got it. Got to take pictures you know.
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!
