Back in December Marcus posted a copy of the Give Me Back compilation from Ebullition records. According to Ebullition there were a hundred of these pressed on a turquoise green vinyl. When I saw Marcus’s copy I found myself wanting one in this color as well. While I already had one on red which I got as part of a box set, I felt like I needed this copy as well just for the sake of completion. Now, I wasn’t going to outright chase one down, but if one came up for sale for really cheap I wasn’t going to hold back.
Well fast forward to this year and I myself found a copy on color for really cheap. When I got my copy in the mail I immediately went to Marcus’s post for reference as I thought the color of mine was really blue. Well if you check his post you can definitely see a more greenish tint to his than my copy. This is really cool as there is probably a wide color range within this pressing.
While I’m not going to be chasing around all these color variations I would love to see how they compare to one another. In the long run though it’s not that important. It’s probably better that I don’t see them as I’ll impulsively try to buy another one. I’m just happy to get one of these in this color. For shits and giggles I also decided to take a picture of the red and blue together.
There were 113 pressed of the red which came in the Ebullition box set. I can only assume that the 13 stragglers were given away to friends and such as the box set was numbered out of a hundred.
I think I’ve purchased more Ebullition vinyl within that past two months in comparison to the last five years. I’ve always been a fan of the earlier releases and I like finding new things. Maybe one day I’ll finally chase down some Econochrist on colors other than the green I have. Now that would be something worth chasing after.
