Another one from the Raw Data series with the silk screened covers...again, limited to only 101. This one is for the These Words Still Pray 12 inch from Onward. When this was released back in 1997, I had pretty much stopped buying vinyl at the time and was only buying CD's. Since this was a vinyl only release, I never picked it up. I'm glad that I finally have it in my collection.
The last record that I picked up was the Break Free LP from One Voice. I first heard this band on the Youth Crew 2009 comp 7 inch, and was really impressed. This album contains the songs from their 7 inch, plus the demo and comp song. Man, I am loving the songs from their 7 inch! Very reminiscent of the Loud and Clear album and probably early Justice, and at times it reminds me a bit of Lights Out. Limited to 300 on orange vinyl.

I asked Robb if he had any copies of the Daysgone 7 inch laying around. I wanted to pick up a gold copy for a friend, and I was hopeful to get a copy on black vinyl for myself. Robb didn't have a black vinyl copy, but he did offer me the one and only test pressing made for the Gold 7 inch. No special cover or anything for it, but I can't explain how excited I was to have this in my possession. In addition to the test pressing, Robb threw in three Daysgone t-shirts as well. Very cool. Only two are pictured above because it seems that my wife confiscated the one shirt that was too small for me, and she wears it as a night shirt.
I had no idea that Suburban Voice had pressed the Kingpin 7 inch on colored vinyl. I was looking at a larger version of the colored vinyl photo that Marcus has at the top of his blog, and there it was...the Kingpin 7 inch on gold vinyl. How could this be? I was there when Al Quint pulled into the parking lot at the Kingpin show and started assembling the records for sale for the first time, and they were all on black vinyl. Right after I saw the picture from Marcus, Robb mentioned that he would sell me his copy. Sweet, I'll take it.
The other piece of colored vinyl that Robb mentioned he had was the Omega Drone 7 inch from Eye For An Eye. I had forgotten how great this band was until I was recently listening to the 100% Unnatural discography on TAANG!. I had been unsuccessful searching eBay, looking for this record on colored vinyl. When Robb mentioned that he had their first 7 inch on red vinyl, yeah, I took it. I recently saw a blue vinyl pressing of this on eBay, but lost the auction at the last minute. If anyone has a copy of this on blue vinyl that they want to let go, let me know, and I'll make you a solid offer.
Robb also tossed in a copy of the Tone 7 inch from Flagman. Apparently his dog had taken a bite of the record cover, so he threw it my way. I'd never heard this record before, and you know, I kind of like it. Very much in the same vein of melodic hardcore of the time.

The whole package on this thing is mint. Nicely screened covers, clear vinyl, A and B side stamped records and inserts, plus each one is hand numbered. Because of the cost involved in creating the vinyl on this, Thunder Lizard is only selling them as package deals with a t-shirt option...but really, $12.95 for a t-shirt and this record is a great deal. Get in on this.
