A Record Collector's Guide

SP68 Dinosaur Jr.

The Wagon b/w Better than Gone

Sub Pop SP68 7", released June 1990 (U.S.)

Glitterhouse GR0097 7", released 1990 (Germany)

This one is a collector's favorite. Supposedly, there were 10,000 of these pressed on white vinyl and 200 on purple. I believe most of this. However, in addition to these two, there is a pink vinyl version, which is very rare, but seems to show up 4-5 times as often as the purple. Look at the pictures to see the distinct differences between the purple and the pink. They were scanned on the same scanner. Bottom line...we don't really know the actual numbers. We do know that pink and purple are both very rare. The prices on both have really started to come down in the past couple of years.
