Screaming Trees

Other Worlds EP

Velvetone CS, released 1984

SST 105, released 1988

The first Screaming Trees release was their 1984 demo, initially released exclusively as a cassette on Velvetone Records (from what I am told, this was limited to 1000 copies - it exists with both black and white cassette shells). Insanely difficult to find, though a couple have finally started to resurface in recent years. It was later reissued by SST Records as SST 105 in 1988. The SST version had a completely different sleeve design. Many copies are on green vinyl. In fact, the black vinyl version seems to be the rarer one (though still not very rare). The color versions of Other Worlds and Buzz Factory are much easier to find than those of Invisible Lantern or Even If and Especially When, which leads me to believe there were many more of those two pressed.
