SP151 Billy Childish

The Ballad of Hollis Brown b/w Grizzerly Bear

Sub Pop SP151 7", released May 1992 (U.S.)

This record exists on a few different colors of vinyl. The powdered blue version is the one I have seen most often (you will sometimes see this called gray). There are actually (at least) three different blue versions. The pink one is by far the rarest.
