A Record Collector's Guide

SP74 Beat Happening

Red Head Walking b/w Secret Picnic Spot

Sub Pop SP74, released September 1990

The first 2000 copies of this one are on red vinyl, while most of the rest of them are on black.  There are some green copies circulating.  They are the rarest, but I've seen them a couple of times.
In December, 2009, I happened upon a mispressed version of the Unsane record (SP76) on green marble vinyl, on which the wrong plate was used for side A.  The A-side is from the SP74 Beat Happening record, and the B-side is from the Unsane record.  As soon as I realized this, I checked the other green copy of SP76 that I had, and that one is the correct Unsane record on both sides.  This one is Beat Happening on A, and Unsane on B, with Unsane sleeve and labels.
