Templars Test Presses

Templars have always been one of my favorite bands, and always will be. As a youngster I once drove 8 hours each way just to see them play.  A few years back when TKO Repressed the class "Dans Les Catacombs Du Studio de L'Acre" collection by the Templars, I was all over it. I was then able to snag the test pressing for this release, with the black and white sleeve. It comes on black vinyl with plain white labels.

The "Band Edition Test Pressing" had a red and white cover, and wasn't really a test pressing but more of a band only alternative cover. It came on the the clear vinyl with red and white black splatter which was the limited version out of /200 for the main release. There was also a bunch pressed on black vinyl for the main release.

The top left is the original pressing on Vulture Rock (clear vinyl), Top right was the main release, it is not shown that well in the picture but its like shiny tin foil front cover. Then the two test presses on the bottom.  Make sure to check out the original pressing from my 50th post...
