As @dnlkdwll said, it’s probably best if we have a separate thread discussing the discography information that’s out there. I’d love to start with the Nitro years vinyl releases.
I’ll have to doublecheck this info, as it’s been nearly a decade and I likely forgot a lot, but from memory, the 5 LPs were first only pressed on black vinyl. From what I remember the colored represses of all 5 didn’t come until after AOD. The first waves were the ones with the stickers detailing the color and number (not sure if the number is listed on all or not). These are:
ATASF: Red /500, Tan /300, White /300
VPOY: Blue /500, Yellow /300
SYMAOE: Green /500, Yellow /500, Tan /300, White /300
AOD: Grey /300
After that came the random color represses, every other variation falls under those.
Then there was the 2014 re-start of Nitro, but those again came on random colors (though before release they advertised them as black, but the pressing plant actually went ahead and did them on color without the new Nitro people knowing). The easiest way to differentiate from the “old” Nitro ones is the new center labels.
And then there’s the 2015 red Hot Topic exclusives (which I have yet to buy )
The current situation is kind of chaotic, with pics from old nitro showing up on releases from new nitro and vice versa, and no real uniformity with the description of early limited colored pressings.
What do you guys think?
