Jane Doe Split

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I've always backed Coalesce over Converge. Well, that's true, but that doesn't mean that I don't like Converge. Au contraire. I always liked Converge, although I mainly up to and including what is widely acknowledged to be their greatest record - 'Jane Doe'. I bought two copies of this one back when it came out in 2001, but I always hoped that at some point I could add the most limited version to my collection, and I finally did. It comes on red & orange split vinyl. Apparently there were only 150 made.

I really struggled to get a picture of this where the split was obvious. It's one of those records where the colour is more impressive and interesting in real life. The only way that I could capture it was to hold it up to the light:

I've actually been listening to quite a bit of Converge lately. The funny thing is, at the moment I'm really into the first LP 'Halo In A Haystack'. I remember buying it from Very Distribution when it came out because Very's catalogue said that it sounded like Resurrection. Ha!

You forgot to mention that you could feed a small village for a month with what it costs these days! Original Equal Vision copies of any color have gotten right out of hand.
Nice score.
