SP31 The Walkabouts


Sub Pop SP31 LP, released March 1989 (U.S.)

Glitterhouse GR0073 LP, released 1989 (Germany)

Shortly after the Walkabouts made a mildly-out-of-place folksy appearance on Sub Pop 200, their first Sub Pop LP came out. According to Sub Pop, the first 3,000 copies contained a lyric sheet. Apparently, when they ran out of lyric sheets to include (or just in later pressings), they started putting in giant letter-size Singles Club subscription forms (we saw this again with Bleach). I found the following in a sealed copy. Also released on black vinyl on Glitterhouse in Germany.

Version Value ($) Scarcity Price Trending
SP31 Black w/ Lyric Sheet 8-12 1 Stable
SP31 Black w/ Singles Club Insert 8-12 4 Stable
