In January 1991, we saw the first major label Screaming Trees album. It was a concept album, and it had mixed commercial results. I've always thought it was excellent overall. Black vinyl, released in the U.S. and Europe. Most European Epic pressings from this time period were Dutch pressings, distributed throughout Europe. In 2012, Music on Vinyl did a 180g vinyl re-release. That one is super-common, and it crashed the value of the other versions, but they have since rebounded. There were also various CD and cassette versions, of course.
