Seaweed's only major label release hit the market after the popularity of their sound had already started to significantly decline. I have no numbers to back this up,
but it certainly seemed as though the Spanaway album did not do all that well. It has had some staying power, though. It seems to have more supporters now than
it ever did in the mid-'90s. It is a solid album. There are some great tracks and some less great tracks mixed in together. A lot of people consider this to be
Seaweed's best album. I prefer the two previous albums, but it is still very good. The U.S. vinyl was black. There was also a UK version on a neon yellow-green
color vinyl. It was licensed from Hollywood to the For All the Right Reasons label. The sleeve for the UK version is also a little different - the silver parts are done in
a shiny silver foil. On the U.S. version, it is just a flat grey color. The U.S. version has a printed inner sleeve containing the lyrics. On the UK release, that
information is printed on a separate insert. There has been some serious bidding on this record when it has come up for sale in recent years.
