The final independent Trees album, and a very good one. The clear blue version is fairly common. It is on a deep blue, which you will occasionally see listed as purple. It isn't. Well, not really. If you hold it up to light, it looks somewhat purple. It's still more blue than purple, though. The complicating factor is that there is an actual purple one. It's a purple marble color, and it was super rare for years, but has been showing up a lot more recently. Not sure why this is. It is, by far, the rarest version of Buzz Factory, at any rate. The price for the purple marble one has been pretty stable, while the price for the blue one has gone up lately. The black vinyl one used to be harder to find than the blue one (but was still much more common than the purple marble). It looks as though there was a relatively recent re-press, though. The re-press looks the same, but apparently did not come with an insert.
