SP33 Mudhoney


You Got It (Keep It Outta My Face) b/w Burn It Clean

Sub Pop SP33 7", released May 1989 (U.S.)

Glitterhouse GR0060 12", released 1989 (Germany)

According to Sub Pop, the first 3,000 of these were released with poster sleeves (see image above). There were 300 on white vinyl, and the rest were on black vinyl. Some of the white copies come with a slightly different poster sleeve. They are on a glossier, magazine-like paper, while all of the black (and some of the white) have a poster sleeve with a thicker stock paper - more of a cardboard feel. For a record that supposedly only has 300 copies, the white one seems to show up for sale pretty often and does not sell for that high a price. I only have anecdotal evidence for this, but it leads me to believe there were more than 300. I also know that some white copies were sold without poster sleeves, so it may be that there were more white copies pressed at some point.

There were also 2,000 pressed on black vinyl with normal sleeves. These later black copies came with loose inserts. I have seen another breakdown of the numbers that says that there were 1,000 poster sleeves and 3,000 total copies. Not sure. None of the above are particularly hard to find.

A couple of other variants have surfaced over the years. First, there does seem to be a white vinyl version without the poster sleeve. I got one of these once and assumed that the sleeves had been switched, but enough of them have now surfaced that I no longer think that to be the case. Also, there were some misprinted black copies with no text on the A side labels.
