It seems every week Rev has been hitting us with another color repress. The most recent was The One Thing Still Holds on Blue vinyl. Without knowing the pressing info, and since I had already bought the white and the clear versions, I just went ahead and got the blue as well. I'm kind of "too deep until now" (ha, corny I know) to stop buying their color represses. Yesterday I spent most of my day off cataloging my records over the last 6-8 months in my excel spreadsheet and alphabetizing them on my shelves. I have been putting it off forever because it is a huge pain in the ass. I basically note the band name, release, label, color of vinyl and how many were pressed. Also any other little notes like if I know what year it came out, what pressing number, if its hand numbered then I put the numbers etc. So here I sit with all these different labels discography's opened all over my computer and google fu'ing my way around the web trying to find pressing info all day.
The whole point my diatribe is that a few weeks ago when I bought the blue copy rev had not updated their discography. Yesterday while updating my catalog, I found the pressing info for this and was quite pleased!
White out of /557
Clear out of /405
Blue out of /240
That kind of makes this blue copy collectable. That is a pretty small pressing number to mix with the words "Chain of Strength"! They are still available at Rev, so I may have to get another copy for trading purposes. I suggest you get one of the blue copies or forever cry about it.
I took this picture of the clear copy last December and never posted it I just realized. I did a long review of the white copy and how it looked compared to my black copy if you want to check that out.
