My Forgotten Favorite b/w Why Should I Be Nice To You?

Slumberland DRYL 010, released January 1992

My Forgotten Favorite/Warm/Crawl/Tales of Brave Aphrodite/Why Should I Be Nice To You? CD

Sub Pop SUB PROCD#6

My Forgotten Favorite might be the best song Velocity Girl ever did.  Truly excellent.  Versions of this record vary greatly, though.  Four different sleeves, three colors of vinyl...all mixed and matched.  There were three sleeves with the same grey base color, with varying accent colors - blue, green, and brown.  The other one had a red base color with a "fuchsia" accent...that's what Slumberland called it...I put it in quotes because I am a guy, and don't deal in color names like fuchsia...I'd call it pink or purple, depending on the day.  All vary in scarcity a bit.  The blue is definitely the most common, followed by the green one, the brown one, and then the red one.  

The three colors of vinyl were black, red marble, and purple marble.  Black is most common, then purple, and the red one is the rarest.  I have no hard numbers to back these claims up.  I am basing solely on how often I have seen them for sale over the years.  

Apparently, there were a few copies of this that were released with Velocity Girl promotional pillow cases.  Supposedly, they did 50 of these, slik-screened by hand.

This is another record that used to sell for a few bucks, and does so no longer.  If you find the rarer combinations, it can go for $20 or so.

One little wrinkle to add to the equation: there was also a Sub Pop promo CD that contained the two tracks from the Slumberland 7", along with the only CD versions of Warm, Crawl, and Tales of Brave Aphrodite.  Fairly scarce.
