Lost My Elephant

So you may or may not know that Supertouch released a limited cover version of their 'Lost My Way' 7" for Record Store Day 2012. There were 70 copies on black vinyl that came in a numbered sleeve which featured an elephant on the front. It was sold exclusively at Generation Records in NYC, where the band played a special in store show on the day. Well, it's taken three years, but I finally managed to snag one for a reasonable price.

I actually managed to get this from the store who were selling on eBay. Makes me wonder how many copies remained unsold, or they held back.

This is the fifth copy of this 7" that I own. The one I am missing is the one with the limited Vinyl Noize cover. Pretty funny that I used to write for Vinyl Noize and this is now the only one I need... all because I didn't want to have to pay for a t-shirt that it came bundled with back when it came out. In the unlikely event that anyone has one with the Vinyl Noize cover and could live without it, you know where to find me...

I think I actually lost out on this to you as I actually wrote to Generation Records about cause it showed no one bought this on eBay and they lowered the price.

Saw that on ebay - the price was a steal! Or better: a proof that "the waiting game" actually can work (I am not saying always ...). I am also missing the Vinylnoize cover version. Anyway, this is the most iconic cover ime.

I was the same, Chris. I watched one end at $25 and forgot to bid. It went unsold. I emailed the seller and asked if I could just buy it. No reply, then they listed at again at $20, which I bid on and won for $23. Sorry if I outbid you. I'm sure they have more copies though.

massivewaste - I agree. This is the best cover for this record. Looks great.

I'm not the biggest Supertouch fan, but that cover is just so good.

Damn you, now you only need the Vinylnoize, while I only need the test press... But anyway, we both need the stamped version. Tried to get that stamped version from several people in the past but no one was interested in a trade for it.

Hang on Willem... what stamped version??? Never heard of it. Whats the deal? Is there a pic anywhere you can point me towards?

I guess Willem is referring to the "United Blood 2011" stamped cover out of 20. Reaper did this for a couple of releases. You can see a pic of the Supertouch cover in the Discography section of Reaper Records' website.

Btw, great score, the cover is really great. I do however like the Vinyl Noize cover even better.
