SP11 Green River

Dry as a Bone

Sub Pop SP11, released June 1987

This one basically qualifies as legendary at this point.  Green River's first on Sub Pop.  These are all on black vinyl, but the inserts varied a bit.  The first pressing of 2000 came with yellow inserts.  The next batch came with pink inserts.  I have heard that there were only 500 with pink inserts, but I don't really believe that, as the pink ones seem to be more common than the yellow ones.  Regardless, the yellow ones sell for more.  There were also additional copies on the market with no inserts.  All versions have been selling for a bit more in recent years.  The yellow insert copies have been all over the map: anywhere from $30 to $200, but most have sold in the range below.

Version Approximate value ($) Price Trending
SP11 Black w/ Yellow Insert (2000) 40-80 Up
SP11 Black w/ Pink Insert 40-50 Up
SP11 Black w/o Insert 20-35 Stable
Yellow Insert
Pink Insert
Rumors Red insert: I was recently told by One Who Knows Things that the printer ran out of yellow paper when printing the inserts for this record, and some of the initial pressings came with red inserts as a result.  I have not seen one fo these, so I cannot confirm as of yet.
