Test Scene

I've picked up a lot of good stuff this year, but barely posted any of it due mainly to not being able to take photos, due to bad light and lack of opportunity to take photos due to living in a building site. I am so far behind that I was on the verge of giving this thing up. But after taking a few photos at the weekend, I figure I'll try to post as much of this year's shit that I can in the last three months that remain.

I'm gonna try to post up some test presses this week. So starting the week with this 7" from the SST Records catalogue:

For anyone who doesn't know the SST catalogue numbers off by heart, there's also a basic insert that reveals what this is:

And for anyone who can't read, this is the Dinosaur Jr 'Freak Scene' test press. There were probably a lot of these made as, back then, the tests were sent out as advance promotional copies. So I'm super stoked to own this, but I don't think it's particularly rare.

I would take a photo of all my copies of this 7" together, but I can't as they're not in my house right now.

Oh, and having just counted, this is the 14th test press on this blog this year. Let's see if I can get that number up a bit this week to a more respectable level...
