Greyish Green

I haven't picked up any Black Flag records since December when I 'finished' collecting the colour vinyl LPs. But despite now having almost every colour LP variant out there, I have next to no 7"s. For the six years or so that I was collecting the LPs (and religiously searching eBay every week) I probably saw every colour 7" for sale, and I pretty much ignored the lot of them. For some reason that I can't even explain, I just wasn't interested. But now that there are no more LPs to collect, I've consciously decided to move on to the 7"s. Here's one I have just picked up - a seldom seen greyish green pressing of 'Louie Louie'.

For some reason it's really hard to photograph this colour. It looks greener in real life, but the camera just won't pick it up accurately. This final pic is the closest of the three.

In case anyone has any coloured Black Flag 7"s that they aren't overly attached to, here are the ones I'm looking for:

Black Flag 'Nervous Breakdown' (SST) - Red vinyl w/ large hole in blue sleeve
Black Flag 'Nervous Breakdown' (SST) - Yellow vinyl in red sleeve
Black Flag 'Six Pack' (SST) - Blue vinyl in red sleeve
Black Flag 'Six Pack' (SST) - Yellow vinyl in red sleeve
Black Flag 'Louie Louie' (SST) - White vinyl
Black Flag 'TV Party' (SST) - Yellow vinyl

Hopefully these 7"s will take less than the six years that it took to collect the LPs.

I always keep an eye on colored Black Flag vinyl. I've just discovered there is also a RED Louie Louie in existence.

I have the red Louie Louie. It's the only record in the history of this blog that I accidentally blogged about twice!!!
