Screaming Trees

Invisible Lantern

SST 188, released 1988

Full-length LP #3. Brilliant record. The color vinyl for this one was a dark blood-red. The red one was a later pressing (1990), possibly released in conjunction with the Anthology set. It is quite difficult to find. It is such a deep red that some people mistake it for brown.

As with the other SST albums, there may have been a recent pressing or resdiscovered back stock. The band started selling sealed black vinyl copies of this one through Merchbar recently. All of this has made the black ones much more common.
