Cool To Be Blue

When I set out to collect Descendents colour vinyl LPs, I don't think I realised how tough this one would be to find. It's taken me something like 4 years to get this thing. The problem has been two-fold. Firstly, this is probably the rarest of all the Descendents LPs. There were only 197 copies on blue vinyl. Secondly, this is on Fat Wreck Chords, and some of the kids who collect Fat Wreck stuff are almost as crazy as Revelation collectors. And thirdly (even though I said the problem was two-fold), this is a colour vinyl Descendents record. You add these factors together and the chances of picking one of these things up is slim. Fortunately though, I like a challenge. So here we are, finally. 'Cool To Be You' on blue vinyl. Done.

I always thought that when I got one of these I would then be able to post a picture of a complete Descendents colour vinyl LP collection. But like a fool I missed out on the purple vinyl reissue of 'ALL' a couple of years back. There were loads of them about and I planned on ordering one direct at some point, but by the time I finally got around to it they were sold out, and for some reason they don't seem to come up for sale. Obviously I badly want one so that I can take a collection photo. Hopefully it'll happen before the year is out.
