In case you're not familiar with the story on this one, here's what the Rev discography has to say on the matter:
1st press : 3900 black vinyl, 1000 orange vinyl, 60 pink vinyl, orange/pink mixed vinyl The color vinyl was suppose to be maroon, to match the cover, but the pressing plant couldn't mix the color properly and came up with pink. After pressing a number of the pink they stopped and tried remixing the color, this time coming up with orange. To make life easier Jordan just had them do the 1000 on orange so the mix was created when changing from pink to orange without cleaning the presses. The actual invoice states 60 on pink and makes no mention of the mix, so how many of the pure pink versus how many of the orange pink mix exist is not known, but it is safe to say that that there are more than 10 of the mix as was originally believed. What is more, did the mix of colors count as orange or pink on the invoice? So are there 60 pure pink and a number of the mix color, or are there a even fewer pure pink and a large number of mixed? To add insult to injury, the mix as been referred to as swirl when actually the pure pink, mix, and orange are all technically swirls. The only way to tell is by comparing colors.
I've had an orange copy of this thing for 20+ years now, so I pulled it out for comparison. It really does highlight the colour difference.
With this, the Sick Of It All 7" first press and red vinyl, and the War Zone 7"s on green and clear, my early Rev collection has moved up a notch in the last couple of months. The only area that still needs work is my yellow GB 7" collection, which is weak. If anyone happens to be looking to unload a light yellow or War Zone b-side label copy then hit me up.
