SP48 Screaming Trees


Change Has Come

Sub Pop SP48 2x7" released 1989 (U.S.)
Sub Pop SP48b CD / SP48a CS, released 1991 (U.S.)
Glitterhouse GR0080 12" / GRCD 80 CD, released 1990 (Germany)

Finally...a 7"!!! This was Screaming Trees' only release on Sub Pop, a double single in 1989. Most copies of this one either contain two black 7"s or one white and one black. Both discs exist on white vinyl, but disc 2 on white seems to be slightly more difficult to find. There is a version with both records on red vinyl (~60 were supposedly made...I will give my assessment of that claim in the coming months). It has always been a really tough find, and took me several years to track down a copy. I've seen it sold once in four years now.

I heard a rumor that there was a double purple copy out there. The test pressing was on purple vinyl, but I've never seen a purple version of the final release with Sub Pop labels. It's possible that's where the rumor started.

There was also a concurrent German release of this EP on Glitterhouse, but it was a 12" with one extra song (the same track that is on the Sub Pop CD version).
