Screaming Trees

Even If and Especially When

SST 132 LP/CD / SSTC 132 CS, released 1987 (U.S.)

The first fully excellent Screaming Trees album (warning: author opinion). After a very long time of looking, I located the color vinyl version of this record. It was pink, as had been rumored for years. It is very, very rare, and tends to go for a tidy sum when placed on the open market. It hadn't been sold for about three years before two appeared for sale in 2021, and they went for huge sums. The pink one was a later pressing (1990-ish), possibly released in conjunction with the Anthology double album. The black vinyl version isn't the cheapest either, but it's out there. It's gotten more common since it and the other SST albums have appeared for sale on the band's Merchbar page (presumably having been re-pressed). They are no longer available on there, but are still fairly easy to find.
