Youngblood Ketchup II

Part two of my Youngblood Records catch up order. This time I'm focussing on the 7"s. Not sure how to tackle these so I'll just go for alphabetical order...

First up a test press of the Coptic Times 7". This is, in my opinion, a really great and underrated 7".

Next is the recent Face Reality 7" on blue vinyl. I think blue must be the more limited colour as I haven't seen this one anywhere other than on Mike's blog. I wasn't so into this 7" at first, but after a couple of weeks this has become one of my gym hits. Love it.

Oh, and I also got a test press of the same Face Reality 7" too. It comes with a standard insert but no sleeve. Hopefully a sleeve will come in time.

I also got a gold vinyl Far From Breaking 7". Not sure why as I didn't ask for it and already have one. Anyone want this spare, get in touch.

This one's not so interesting to look at. A test press of the Give 'Flowerhead' 7". Again, no sleeve, but in time I am sure it will come.

And finally, a few more copies of the No Tolerance 'No Remorse, No Tolerance' 7". First up is the gold vinyl. I'm guessing that this is the most common colour as I have seen this one more frequently than the other colours.

Then there's the blue vinyl version. This was, I believe, a second pressing made for This Is Hardcore 2012.

This has a slightly different sleeve to the first press. The first press sleeves are black card with white lettering. This one has silver lettering. I tried to make it show up in the photos but am not sure it does.

This sleeve is also a folded sleeve rather than pocket sleeve. Not sure those are even the correct terms to be honest, but I'm sure you will know what I mean. Also, I tried to get a photo comparing the white and silver lettering.

And finally, a test press of the No Tolerance 7". Yup, I feel pretty lucky to have bagged one of these for sure.

I was feeling pretty lucky with this haul, and then I read Mike's blog and realised that somehow I managed to miss the red vinyl copy of the No Tolerance 7". Ugh. How irritating.

I was under the impression that the gold variant was the most rare. Either way, great score on that test press!

Yeah, I feel real bad that you don't have the red pressing. Suck it.
