Velocity Girl - Albums and EPs

Velocity Girl's set of 12" vinyl is the polar opposite of its 7"s - not many releases and (mostly) not hard to find. They only had three real full-length albums, and only one of those exists on rare colors. There were a couple of important compilations in there as well, which I have included in the list.

6 Song Compilation CD

Slumberland SLR 23, released February 1993

CD-only release on Slumberland compiling the songs from the two versions of the I Don't Care If You Go single and the My Forgotten Favorite single.

Copacetic

Sub Pop SP196, released March 1993

Sub Pop SP75/242 (Germany)

Velocity Girl's first full-length album - very solid release. I would like it a lot more if the vocals were more audible, but it's still excellent. It exists on several different colors of vinyl, all of which are somewhat tough to find now. I have seen it on clear blue, blue-gray marble, purple marble vinyl, and pink marble vinyl. The blue one is the easiest to find. The blue-gray and purple marble versions are a little harder, and more or less equally rare. The pink one is brutally difficult to find. One showed up in an auction (which I lost), and it took me another few years to find another. I've never seen a third.

The European release was of 1,000 copies on red vinyl, with some more on black.

¡Simpatico!

Sub Pop SP247, released June 1994

Sub Pop SP122/303 (Germany)

This was by far my favorite Velocity Girl album. Lots of solid material here. Released on black vinyl in the U.S. and in Europe. The U.S. vinyl is still available from Sub Pop. One European version was limited to 1,000 copies, and came with a promotional 7" - the Labrador single (and some sticker sheets). There was also a version sold without the single, and that one is more common. All versions have been appreciating after being stable for many years.

Gilded Stars and Zealous Hearts

Sub Pop SP340, released March 1996

Velocity Girl's final effort was definitely its most polished work. There isn't much on this album that really grabs me, with a notable couple of exceptions. The glitter vinyl version was produced in the UK (like the color vinyl Nothing single). It is a really interesting effect. The vinyl is clear...but it has a bunch of red glitter in it. I am still trying to figure out how this was possible without ruining the recording. U.S. black vinyl still available from Sub Pop.
