When speaking of my favorite Seaweed album it has always been a toss-up between “Four” and “Weak” for me. I think “Weak” just edges out “Four” due to it being the one of those LPs that never used to leave my turntable. I used to listen to that album nonstop when I was a kid.
Twenty plus years later the album still holds up as one of Sub Pop’s best releases. So when a chance came up to add something pretty cool to my Seaweed collection you know I just had to give in.
I recently bought a test press copy of the European version of “Weak”. While it might not be the US version of the album I just needed to have it due to its uniqueness. I didn’t care I just went for it and bam a week later here it is.
There’s not really much to it. It’s a black record in a white sleeve. What I do like is the promo flyer that came with it. Who knew that they were Sub Pop’s All-Boy band?
