I'm particularly stoked to feature this record today as it's one of those records that I thought I would never own. It always seemed so incredibly rare and expensive. Fast forward a few years and it no longer seems as expensive as it once did. I guess I've paid much, much more for other things in recent years, so it's no longer such a big deal. Well, when one came up at a decent price recently, I decided to finally cross it off the wants list.
Soundgarden 'Louder Than Love' LP on A&M Records. There were probably thousands of these things pressed. But the only colour vinyl copies were either red or green vinyl, and these were strictly promotional copies only. They were never on sale to the general public. Not sure who got them exactly. Maybe it was the equivalent of modern hardcore's 'friends press'? But anyway, the green is the rarer colour, with apparently only 250 in existence, making this pretty much THE rarest Soundgarden there is. So, you know, a nice one to have.
Of course, even though obtaining any colour copy of this seemed an impossible find in the past, now that I have a green one I kinda feel obliged to chase a red one. *Sigh*
