Dust was the final Screaming Trees album before they called it quits. A very solid album, but definitely mellower/lower energy than its predecessors. There were two original vinyl versions - in the U.S. and Europe. The U.S. E 64178 version appeared to be more common, but seems to now be the more expensive variant. The prices for both have generally held steady for many years, but have been creeping upward lately, despite the re-release. Speaking of 2011, Music on Vinyl released a 180g re-press of Dust. That one is easy to find.

There were also a bunch of CD and cassette versions. The Japanese CD came with a bonus track: "Wasted Time", one of the two b-sides from the All I Know Single. Interestingly, this was one of very few albums that got an official U.S. release on MiniDisc. I was all in on MDs in the 90s, but they never really got off the ground in the States. They caught on much more in Japan.

In 2017, HNE Recordings in Europe put out a double CD deluxe edition of Dust. The second disc contained all sorts of b-sides that had appeared elswhere. It had all the b-sides from the Butterfly Single, the All I Know Single, the Sworn and Broken Single, the previously exclusive tracks from the Ocean of Confusion anthology, "Darkness Darkness" from the True Lies soundtrack, and "Working Class Hero" from the John Lennon Tribute.

Rumors Giordano: told me about a European version with a 84178-1 catalogue number. I have never seen it and am not convinced it exists.
