Seaweed - Albums

Seaweed released a good handful of albums while they were active. In my opinion, it took a little while for them to hit stride, but they did, and with really solid results. Let's take a look...


Tupelo TUPLP28, released 1990

This was officially a Tupelo release in the UK, but also contained Leopard Gecko's logo. It was a compilation of Seaweed's first three singles, two of which were on Leopard Gecko, and the other on K. Most copies of this record are on black vinyl. However, a blue marble vinyl version exists as well. I don't know how many of those were pressed, but it's pretty rare. The record also came with a folded Seaweed poster.

Hollywood HR62009-1, released 1995

Hollywood/For All the Right Reasons EV2A 0035 (UK)

Seaweed's only major label release hit the market after the popularity of their sound had already started to significantly decline. I have no numbers to back this up, but it certainly seemed as though the Spanaway album did not do all that well. It has had some staying power, though. It seems to have more supporters now than it ever did in the mid-'90s. It is a solid album. There are some great tracks and some less great tracks mixed in together. A lot of people consider this to be Seaweed's best album. I prefer the two previous albums, but it is still very good. The U.S. vinyl was black. There was also a UK version on a neon yellow-green color vinyl. It was licensed from Hollywood to the For All the Right Reasons label. The sleeve for the UK version is also a little different - the silver parts are done in a shiny silver foil. On the U.S. version, it is just a flat grey color. The U.S. version has a printed inner sleeve containing the lyrics. On the UK release, that information is printed on a separate insert. There has been some serious bidding on this record when it has come up for sale in recent years.

Actions & Indications

Merge MRG150, released 1999

A few years after Seaweed's unceremonious departure from Hollywood, they put out one additional album on Merge. Actions & Indications never did much for me. Many people are into it. It isn't really my style. Black vinyl.
