The Pietasters' first single is a very tough find. I am still trying to work out the details of this one, even after all of these years. All of the copies I had
seen for many years were on yellow vinyl, and the sleeves were stamped and numbered out of 300. Simple, right? No. There are actually a good deal more
of these on the market that are not numbered. There must have been a second pressing at some point, but I have no idea when that might have been. In addition to
the yellow vinyl, there is a version on dark red vinyl. In my experience, the yellow and red copies are more or less equally rare, but all numbered copies I have seen have been
yellow. However, I have also seen non-numbered yellow copies.
And then...there's the black one. The first (and, to date, only) time I have seen a black
vinyl version of this record was when one was auctioned in 2010. It is very, very scarce. So, there you go...300 numbered on yellow vinyl with stamped, numbered
sleeves, and some others on yellow, dark red, and black with non-numbered sleeves. The songs that appear on this singles are different versions from those found on the
first Pietasters album. However, these versions are available on the 1992-1996 3xCD.
