SP178 Pond

Wheel b/w Cinders

Sub Pop SP178, released November 1992

Sub Pop SP56/218 (Germany)

Sub Pop SP59/222 12"/CDS (Germany)

This single was Pond's first appearance on the Sub Pop scene.  These were all on white vinyl, and it was purportedly a pressing of 2000.  Supposedly, there is a slight color variation in the print on the sleeve, and some copies had the band name in an olive-green color, while others are in a lime-green.  According to Sub Pop, 600 of the 2000 sleeves had green print.  Now, does this mean lime green or olive green?  I assume lime green, since olive green is the one that shows up more often.
