SP21 Mudhoney

Superfuzz Bigmuff

Sub Pop SP21, released October 1988

Glitterhouse GR0034 (Germany)

Well, it doesn't get much more iconic than this (until we get to Bleach...).  Mudhoney's first album.  The first pressing was of 1000 on black vinyl.  The first pressing came with a poster.  After this first press, some other colors surfaced, including blue marble, purple marble (normal and dark), red, and grey marble.  The grey one is the rarest of these.  There was a later black pressing; the sleeve contained a bar code and the Sub Pop URL on the back.  In 2009, Sub Pop repressed this album for the 20th anniversary of its original release.  This version is on a dark grey marble vinyl.  It comes with a poster, similar to that of the original release, and a download coupon.  The labels are a darker yellow than on the earlier pressings.  The grey re-press seems to have devalued the original grey version a bit.
