The last time I posted about this record, I had just cherry picked a dude's collection which brought me from 15 to 33 different versions. You can check it out here.
Well last year, another pressing was released courtesy of Jeff Lasich at Bottled Up Records. The old Bottled Up myspace page had always hinted that there would be another pressing due to the fact that there was still demand and that Jeff had a lot of left over covers just collecting dust.
The first two I was able to pick up from the new 7th press was from Revelation. They had two colors available, clear green out of 250 and white out of 500, which was a RevHq webstore exclusive. I immediately picked up one of each.
Fast forward a few months and I am surfing the internet, checking out all the record labels I usually follow. I stumble on to the new Bottled Up store to see that there are an additional two colors of the 7" available, clear red out of 150 and Clear gold out of 100. That's two more I order asap.
This gets me thinking, if there is one thing with this record it is the color transitions that get counted as separate pressings. These transitional records sometimes end up with a cool different cover or something to set them apart. That's usually enough to keep me interested.
I did a quick check at HYE? to see if other people maybe had some versions I didn't know about. Five seconds later, I'm staring at the 7th press motherload! I messaged Jeff through the React! board and was able to score an additional five copies.
Black with inverse black and white cover/10
As you can see, these small variants are all some kind of combination of the larger number pressings of white, green, red and gold. Well, except for the black vinyl with the inverse cover.
As luck would have it, or not have it, I'm still missing at least one. Red with black swirl out of 11. Jeff didn't have an extra to part with, so it is off to ebay to hopefully find it some day.
That brings my new total up to 42. 42 copies of the same record. I've said it before and I will say it again, what the fuck is wrong with me?
Oh yeah. I was also sent a full discography to check out as well. According to that list, I'm still 11 copies away from the complete collection, and that doesn't include tests. Kill me now...
I love it! And here I was thinking that I had a lot of copies of this record...you've got me beat!ReplyDelete
My god, nine more! Astonishing! Two questions though:ReplyDelete
1. Are you aware of anyone out there who has more variants of this than you?
2. Would you actually go after a test press of this one if you had all the other variants?
I'm currently selling all of these:ReplyDelete

Not sure what you're missing, but shoot me an offer if you see something you want (email@example.com)
Also, my man Marko from Finland has a complete HH collection apart from 1 of those demo transitions... it's crazy.
I love your blog! Collecting vinyl is mad!
I created a website for several years with all pressings of all Have Heart's issues.
It is in a very bad English because I'm French and speaks very little English!
At the time, your blog helped me to collect information.
Congratulations and keep up!
1. Yeah just off HYE, Marko Koponen as mentioned above pretty much has them. Lasich and Pesak have them all too.
2. Yeah, I think I would like tests on these, but only after I got them all first. Funny thing is, there are more test presses than most of the colors I still need.
Not one of the 11 versions I still need have more than 8 copies. A few are out of 4. It will be hard.
Comment ca va? Your Have Heart site is excellent! Thanks for letting me know about it! I am so impressed. It's nice to see pictures of records I probably will never be able get.
I had no idea that there was a fourth color that was exclusive to REV. Must buy now!ReplyDelete
