INSTED - A DOUBLE DOSE OF FRIENDSHIP



The debut Lp by the possibly the most positive band ever to have graced this fine planet of ours! Ok heres the deal, anyone that knows me knows that I love Insted and I really like this Lp. Saying that I always thought that it had been recorded on the cheap as the production is so thin and makes the Lp lose that necessary power that would make this a classic. Anyway production gripes aside, this is still an awesome Lp with catchy as hell songs and on the Dubar brothers fabled Wishingwell label. I always had a copy of this on black but since I'm a record horder managed to trade for these two limited versions. As you can see in the picture there is a white and clear red version. The white was only sold on tour by the band and has blank labels which leads me to presume that it was going to be used for promotional purposes. See the picture of the cut top right corner for more proof that this was going to be the case. The clear red was available to those that first ordered the Lp by mail and has the regular Lp labels.

I am incredibly jealous of this picture. How have I never picked these things up? Damnit.

Hey, my copy of this record is on clear red vinyl! I had no idea that it was so limited...unless they did later pressings on that color as well....
