Contains the Velocity Girl track "What You Say"

Simple Machines SMR 04 7", released 1991 (U.S.)

Simple Machines did this series of compilation 7"s named after...well, simple machines...this was the 4th in the series, and contained the Velocity Girl song "What You Say". The first pressing was of 1,500 on what they called see-through maroon vinyl. It looks black unless you hold it up to the light, and then it looks brown...see pics below. It was later re-pressed with a sleeve with a different accent color. I want to say the blue accent sleeve came first and the green accent sleeve came later, but I'm not positive. Both are inexpensive and common.
