SP97 The Fluid/Nirvana

Candy (live) b/w Molly's Lips (live)

Sub Pop SP97, released January 1991

Sub Pop Singles Club #27

7500 total pressed - 4000 on green marble vinyl, 3500 on black. The green marble ones have varying degrees of marbling. There are even some that are solid green (see pic below). Copies that are solid green or those that are mixed green and black vinyl command much more money. The more the green and black are mixed, the more they fetch. Some fakes have surfaced of the black version - these can be recognized by the matrix codes, which are machine-stamped SP-97A X / SP-97B X, while the real thing has longer, handwritten matrix codes - SP-97-A Kdisc ch L-37037 LATER / SP-97-B Kdisc ch L-37037x LATER.
